What's the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund?

The Official CBLDF Logo

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit group committed to protecting the first amendment rights of comic book artists, writers, and publishers. 

Over the years comic books have been accused of corrupting the bright young minds of the future.  Some people beleievd that Batman comics would cause homosexual tendencies in young men and that anti-social and anti-American ideology were being propagated by comics.   Solution?  Burn and ban comic books! 

Fortunately today we have the CBLDF to help fight the good fight against censorship and protect comic books from censorship.
