PEREZ DESIGNS CBLDF '04 MEMBERSHIP CARD
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
