Valiant Entertainment has teamed up with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) to offer an exclusive fan experience that benefits the CBLDF’s important work. The non-profit organization is dedicated to protecting the First Amendment and the freedom to read comics.
In tandem with New York Comic Con 2017 – taking place on October 5-8 – Valiant is opening the doors of its Midtown Manhattan headquarters to fans who donate to the CBLDF. Beginning at $100, qualifying fans can obtain an all-access tour of Valiant HQ along with limited edition Valiant comics, merchandise, one-on-one signings, and more.
A donation of $100 gets fans a tour of the Valiant HQ hosted by Valiant staff, as well as a Valiant/CBLDF variant bundle. The $150 level gets the previously listed plus a Secret Weapons #1 variant bundle. By donating $250, fans receive the previously listed, the Secret Weapons #1-4 variant bundle, and a sit-down signing with Secret Weapons writer Eric Heisserer and artists Raul Allen and Patricia Martin. The $300 level gets the previously listed, as well as a sit-down signing with War Mother writer Fred Van Lente, Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons, and Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.
“Valiant Entertainment has been an active and vital supporter of the CBLDF since they initially burst onto scene, and it’s always great to work with them on fundraising events like this one. They have some of the most dedicated fans in comics, and hopefully this experience will give those fans an inside look at the industry, while also helping us continue our important work, defending Free Expression,” said Alex Cox, Deputy Director of the CBLDF.
Tours and signing times will be assigned for either October 6 or 7, at Valiant’s discretion.
