Diamond Reveals Image Comics CBLDF Uncensored Covers – and We Show Most of Them

Posted by August 20, 2018 Comment

This September, Image Comics will be running added variant covers to benefit their Portlandian neighbours, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), the industry voice for free speech advocacy and education. A creator-led drive, Tim Seeley said:

“Comics have been uniquely affected by censorship since the very beginning. I wanted to do something with my fellow Image creators to call attention to the problem, and to raise money for CBLDF to help their efforts to fight back. They own the Comics Code Seal of Approval, the censorship stamp that used to govern almost all comics until that organization died in 2011. We thought we’d bring back the Code for one month, to show how ham-fisted those censorship attempts were while having some fun making money for the CBLDF’s important work.”

They showed off the censored versions, but retailers wanted a better idea for what the actual uncensored versions would be. So now Diamond has shown those off as well…
