CBLDF E.C. Lives! Art Jam
Sixty years ago, EC Comics threw in the towel, shuttering everything but MAD magazine when the Picto-Fiction titles failed to reach an audience. Although defeated by the Comics Code and the moral panic of the 1950s, EC left an indelible mark on the comics medium that's still felt to this day. Artists will create pieces in tribute to the EC tradition before your eyes. These great creators will share their perspectives on censorship and make once-in-a-lifetime art to benefit the Fund's important work defending the right to read comics. Get a chance to watch live art being created, learn about censorship, and bid to win the pieces made during the panel! All proceeds benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
