    (excerpt)

    Wizard World is also the perfect opportunity to renew your membership. Everyone who signs up at Wizard World Philly will receive an official CBLDF Member Pin at the show, and will later receive the 2004 Member Card featuring the Hulk by George Perez. Becoming a member is the best way to help the Fund. By adding your dues you help us to fight the legal battles necessary to keep comics safe from prosecution. Right now we're waging fights in Arkansas and Michigan to knock out unconstitutional display laws that would hurt retailers selling your favorite books. Your membership helps us wage those battles, so stop by our booth and lend your support to these important fights!

    Wizard World Philly runs from Friday until Sunday at the Philadelphia Convention Center. For more information on guests and directions please visit http://www.wizardconventions.com.

     April 10, 2004 | CBLDF 2004 Card Available Now
    From Vu

    I have been meaning to mention that this card was mailed out sometime in late March 2004 (the membership expires February 2005 as seen in the back of the card.) The artwork was previously used in MORE FUND COMICS #1 (Sep 2003) (and in black and white backcover on MORE FUND COMICS #1 (LIMITED EDITION) (Sep 2003)).

    You can obtain this card by joining the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund by donating $25 to the cause. You can use paypal or send a check to CBLDF (their address is located on their website.)

    The card looks like a plastic sturdy credit card. You can get benefits and perks at comic conventions (I have seen, for instance, that artists would do free commissions if you show them your CBLDF card.) I carry it in my wallet because it just looks cool.

    The back of the card reads:

    COMIC BOOK LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
    2004 MEMBERSHIP CARD

    MEMBER NAME
    MEMBER NUMBER

    HULK: ™ & © Marvel. Used with permission. Hulk artwork originally appeared on MORE FUND COMICS #1 available through www.skydogcomics.com • ARTWORK - George Pérez • DESIGN/COLORS - J.Lind/www.grindcrank.com

    Remember that donating to them goes to a worthy cause, for instance in the trial of Jesus Castillo (who was arrested for selling an adult comic to an adult undercover policeman, in Texas.) Although, Castillo lost the case CBLDF is still trying to appeal the case, as well as make sure things like this doesn't happen again.

    CBLDF
    Following up on last year’s membership card designed by Jim Lee, the CBLDF has confirmed that this year’s card features the Hulk by George Perez.

    The image, showing the Hulk crushing the word “censorship” was also used on last year’s More Fund Comics, a benefit published by Sky Dog Press. In addition to being the first time Perez has designed a card, the Hulk card also marks the first time that a major publisher has allowed the Fund to use one of its characters on a Member Card.

    “This card is great example of how the comics community is helping the Fund keep watch on this field’s First Amendment rights,” Executive Director Charles Brownstein said. “Marvel, George, and John Gallagher, who originally published this image on the cover of More Fund Comics are to be commended for supporting us with their hard work.”

    The Perez card will be available to all CBLDF members who sign up at a $25 or better donation. One hundred members will also be able to to get their card signed by George Perez by joining the CBLDF Century Club . Brownstein explains, “The Century Club is something Jim Lee got going last year. Basically the first 100 people to sign up with the Fund at a membership level of $100 or better gets their card signed by George.”

    Along with the Perez, the Fund will offer its 2004 Member Pin, which features Randy Dahlk’s Fund Logo in gold on a cloisonné pin. The pin is sent to members who join at the $50 level. For members who sign up at the $100 level, the Fund is offering a Member T-Shirt, which features the Fund logo in red and blue on a black shirt. Other membership incentives for higher levels are available at www.cbldf.org

    CBLDF MEMBERSHIP CARD (2004)
    CBLDF
    The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, Marvel Comics, and George Perez have teamed up to smash censorship! The 2004 CBLDF Member Card features Marvel's Hulk putting his foot down for free speech in a stunning image drawn by JLA/Avengers visionary George Perez! To view the image, visit http://www.cbldf.org.

    "This card is a great first," says CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein. "Marvel's really stepped up in a big way by becoming the first major company to allow the use of one of their key icons on our Member Card. It's also the first time that George, a past recipient of our Defender of Liberty Award, has illustrated the card. And, of course, they're teaming up to help us protect the most important First of all – The First Amendment."

    All CBLDF Members who sign up in 2004 at $25 or better will receive the Perez Hulk Member Card. One hundred members will also be able to to get their card signed by George Perez by joining the CBLDF Century Club . Brownstein explains, "The Century Club is something Jim Lee got going last year. Basically the first 100 people to sign up with the Fund at a membership level of $100 or better gets their card signed by George."

    In addition to the Perez card, the Fund also rolled out the rest of this year's Member Premiums. Foremost is the 2004 Member Pin, which features Randy Dahlk's Fund Logo in gold on an attractive cloisonné pin. The pin is sent to members who join at the $50 level. For members who sign up at the $100 level, the Fund is offering a Member T-Shirt, which features the Fund logo in red and blue on a black shirt. Other membership incentives for higher levels are available at http://www.cbldf.org.

    "This card is great example of how the comics community is helping the Fund keep watch on this field's First Amendment rights," Brownstein said. "Marvel, George, and John Gallagher, who originally published this image on the cover of More Fund Comics are to be commended for supporting us with their hard work."
