Jeff Lemire, the bestselling author whose book Essex County is featured in this bundle says, “We all need to fight for better resources for librarians and educators to defend the freedom of expression and the CBLDF has done that. Essex County was challenged in Canada and I know the importance of the CBLDF as an essential part of the comics world.”

CBLDF President Christina Merkler says, “It’s incredible to recognize that so many of the most well-loved and popular titles in comics have been banned and challenged. Seeing books CBLDF has stood up for like Saga, Bone, Barefoot Gen, and Love & Rockets in this bundle is a strong reminder that the freedom to read can’t be taken for granted.”

Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home, says, “CBLDF has gone to bat for my readers and fellow artists time and again over the years. Thanks to their support, books like Fun Home are available to readers who wouldn’t otherwise see themselves in their community’s libraries. Thank you, Humble Bundle community for supporting their work!”

Renowned author and CBLDF Advisory Board chair Neil Gaiman says, “Thanks to the support of the Humble Bundle community, CBLDF is realizing our long-term goals of creating new legal support for creators at risk domestically and around the world. We’re building more resources to help students, educators and librarians use comics in education, and defending their Free Expression rights — all at no cost to those who need our help.”

The Humble Comics Bundle: Start Here! will run from February 13th, 11 a.m. Pacific time through March 1st, 10 a.m. Pacific time.
