Not sure what to get your loved ones this holiday season? How about a copy of The Lost Girls personalized to them by Alan Moore? What about a copy of Rachel Rising personalized by Terry Moore? Or Smile personalized by Raina Telegemeir? Hopefully you are not getting both The Lost Girls and Smile for the same person. That might be a bit awkward. But, no matter who is on your shopping list, the CBLDF is here to help with a great program which will help you as well as help defend the First Amendment.
Celebrate The Spirit of Giving this holiday season by gifting signed and personalized graphic novels by famous authors from Comic Book Legal Defense Fund!

When you place your order, please indicate how you want the book personalized in the comments section. Please include the personalization request, such as: For Will, For Carl & Nancy, or To The Groppers! Sorry – artists will not be able to provide sketches or other messages.

Here’s How Your Donation Will Be Used
Expert Legal Defense: When a First Amendment emergency becomes a criminal case, CBLDF springs to action. Thanks to our efforts, earlier this year Canadian authorities dropped all criminal charges in the case of Ryan Matheson, an American citizen who was wrongfully accused at the U.S. / Canadian border of importing child pornography on his laptop, when in fact, what he had on his computer was humor and fantasy manga. CBLDF provided substantive support in the form of legal resources and expert witnesses. We also contributed $30,000 to Ryan’s legal fees, and we are currently working to pay off the remaining $34,000 in legal defense costs. Ryan appeared at NYCC to tell his story. You can read his words or listen to a recording of the panel to learn how CBLDF members made a difference in his life here.
