Free Speeches

    (Oni, 1998)
™ and ©1998 The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund

Created by comic book industry notables and Oni press, proceeds from Free Speeches help support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. There are pieces of artwork by scads of great artists and a great forward by Denis Kitchen (detailing the creation of the CBLDF.) The bulk of the book is a group of enlightening essays concerning free speech and the comic book industry (including a copy of the famous “Comics Code Authority” guidelines). The essays (speeches) are by Nadine Strossen of the ACLU, Dave Sim (Cerebus), Neil Gaiman (A Distant Soil, Miracleman), and Frank Miller (Ronin, Sin City). In addition, throughout the book, the margins are filled with quotes from famous people, all on the subject of free speech.
