Cloonan will generously contribute an original sketch to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which will be auctioned off at San Diego Comic-Con.

Cloonan has been very busy in the past few years, contributing to Pixu, with Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon, and Vasilis Lolos, and writing the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales of the Vampires one-shot. She is currently working on DEMO, her critically acclaimed series with Brian Wood.

We are jazzed to have Cloonan join this year’s CBLDF event, and you can be a part of the action: all of the sketches from our awesome publishers and creators and creating limited-edition autograph cards! We’ll be giving these away, for free, at Comic-Con in San Diego. To collect yours, stop by the TFAW booth and the booths of our participants!
