CBLDF Liberty Trading Cards

Key Features

Release Date: 07.19.2011

In comic books, the hero must battle a villain in a world of fantasy. In our world, there are real-life villains as well. Even in our modern era, artistic expression and free speech is challenged in the comic book industry. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) is a non-profit organization that comes to the aid of those artists who are threatened by censorship and other legal troubles. Supported by some of the most acclaimed creators and artists in the industry, the CBLDF has long been a champion of free speech.

This trading card set showcases some of the historic legal battles comic books have had to overcome from the Seduction of the Innocent era in the 1950s to the modern day. In addition to the base set, special hand drawn sketch cards and autograph cards by some of the top talent in the comic book world will be featured! Erik Larsen, Charlie Adlard, Rob Liefeld, Frank Quitely and Terry Moore are just a few artists who will be doing sketch cards. Plus, autographs can be found from such names as Neil Gaiman, Jeff Smith, Gail Simone and Robert Kirkman. To support the organization and its mission, all proceeds from the CBLDF Liberty trading cards go to the CBLDF.
