dec090203 Jim Lee, Gabriel Hardman contribute to SDCC/CBLDF fundraiserWe are proud to announce the addition of Jim Lee to our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event! The legendary artist, founder and publisher of WildStorm, and Co-Publisher of DC Comics will donate an original sketch to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for their annual auction at San Diego Comic-Con!

Lee burst onto the comics scene in the late 1980s with his work on Uncanny X-Men, and in 1991, he launched the series X-Men as both the artist and co-writer. In 1992, he was one of six artists to create Image Comics, publishing WildC.A.T.S. and his other creator-owned series under his WildStorm Productions imprint. Lee brought WildStorm to DC Comics in 1999, and today, Lee is a major architect of one of the largest comic book publishers in America. This makes him a powerful force when it comes to protecting the First Amendment rights of the comics community!

These days, Lee has been drawing some of DC’s most iconic characters in All-Star Batman and Robin, Batman: Hush, and Superman: For Tomorrow. Fortunately, fans can get a copy of his CBLDF sketch: we will be creating limited-edition autograph cards of all of the artwork donated by our participating publishers and creators, which you can collect for free at SDCC this July!

Lee joins an esteemed group of creators who are supporting the CBLDF with this event, including Guy Davis, Jeff Parker, Tim Seeley, Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon, and many more. Make sure to visit the booths of all of our participants–and the TFAW booth–to collect your copies of these exclusive cards!

We’d like to thank the many, many creators and publishers who have generously donated their time and talents to this important cause. Want to be a part of the action? If you’re a comics professional who wants to get involved, we will gladly accept new participants up through July 9–email Andrew McIntire with the subject line, “CBLDF Auction 2010? now. Or simply become a member of the CBLDF.
