Creative freedom often goes hand in hand with other freedoms. Imagination for instance. Freedom of enjoyment is another great one. It also typically comes with the freedom to read and that's something CBLDF wants to protect with CBLDF Presents: Liberty, an anthology benefiting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. This deluxe hardcover edition published by Image Comics collects Liberty Annual 2008-2012, additional material not seen anywhere else and a stunning new cover by Paul Pope.
