CDBLF suitcase 698x1024 Comic Book Legal Defense Fund backs traveller arrested at Canadian border for pornographic manga on his hard drive

The images at issue are all comics in the manga style. No photographic evidence of criminal behavior is at issue. Nevertheless, a warrant was issued and the laptop was turned over to police. Consequently, the American has been charged with both the possession of child pornography as well as its importation into Canada. As a result, if convicted at trial, the American faces a minimum of one year in prison. This case could have far reaching implications for comic books and manga in North America.

The CBLDF’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to aid the case by raising funds to contribute to the defense and to help the defense with strategy and expert resources.

Brownstein says, “This is an important case that impacts the rights of everyone who reads, publishes, and makes comics and manga in North America. It underscores the dangers facing everyone traveling with comics, and it can establish important precedents regarding travelers rights. It also relates to the increasingly urgent issue of authorities prosecuting art as child pornography. While this case won’t set a US precedent, it can inform whatever precedent is eventually set. This case is also important with respect to artistic merit in the Canadian courts, and a good decision could bring Canadian law closer to US law in that respect. With the help of our supporters, we hope to raise the funds to wage a fight that yields good decisions and to create tools to help prevent these sorts of cases from continuing to spread.”

    Dark Horse Comics HALO: COLLATERAL DAMAGE #3
    My comic shop neglected to pull this for me 🙁

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 15th, 2018
    Story felt rushed and out of place, but it’s a good issue to start with, they even have a “previously on” and “who you need to know about” at the start of the issue.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 15th, 2018
    I somehow missed the first issue of this, but I’m assuming that Broccoli is up to something nefarious, but there wasn’t much nefarious stuff going on here, just a standard shuttlecraft ride from the Enterprise to the surface of the planet.  Spoilers: it sorts crashes, much to no one’s surprise.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 15th, 2018
    Photo realistic comic art is unnerving when it comes to actors you know doing stuff you’ve never seen them do before, like Woody Harrelson fighting a giant tentacle monster.

    Another issue of Poe Dameron in which Poe is sitting in a chair the entire time watching a Holo of other people doing exciting things. At this point the story is feeling over extended and should have been wrapped up in a single issue, but that’s not the way Marvel nor LucasArts works.

Here’s some snap judgements on the comics I read this week:

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    I’m surprised how much I’m enjoying a Valiant book with no superheroes in it.
  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    I’m assuming this is the final Buffy story due to fox taking back the franchise for their inevitable merger with Disney?   Regardless, it’s been well written and I’m sad to see the series go.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    Why she gotta be so violent all the time?

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    This is one of the most wordy Marvel books that I’ve picked up in a long time.  Normally I enjoy reading wordy comics, but this one just kinda spins in the mud for a bit and doesn’t go anywhere.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    Oh, the Punisher is off killing people because he’s the Punisher and they’re bad guys.  I don’t believe the main person that’s killed here is going to stay dead very long, they’re one of the biggest villains of the Marvel Universe and it would be just plain stupid to have “The Punisher” be the one that puts them in the ground forever.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    I’m pretty sure this is a new writing team and I’m not sure that I’m a fan yet.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    Magic Man?

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    Emperor Pappy is a rude man and this issue lays out all the reasons why Vader ultimately threw him down a shaft.

     

  •  Comic Review for week of August 22th, 2018
    “Fungal Spectral Ghost of a Dead Jedi” is not a phrase I would have thought I would ever run in to, yet here we are.  This is consistently one of the better Star Wars books that come out every month, and what I would hope for in the “Star Wars Story” movies.

UNNATURAL 1 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Borderline pornography, but boy howdy does it take it’s basic premise and run with it. I’m going to get the collections and see how I like them.

THE PUNISHER 14 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Punisher is asked to team up with Night Thrasher, Moon Knight, and another mysterious guest star. I dig the idea here and where they’re going with it.

KICK ASS 16 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Still enjoying the story, still digging the black and white covers.

TREES 1 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
This was a huge month for Image Firsts, with a few good ones like Unnatural and this one “Trees”, which is about a post first contact Earth in which the Aliens don’t even recognize us as something they’d like to communicate with. Another one that I’ll eventually get the trades for and consume at a later date.

FALLEN WORLD 4 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Dan Abnett can do no wrong, I’ll die on this hill if I have to.

large 408032 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
I love the story they’re telling here, but absolutely hate the art style.

STAR WARS 70 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Honeymooners getting busy in the back rooms of the Honeymoon Hotel!

IMAGE FIRSTS ICE CREAM MAN 1 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Is this the same Ice Cream Man that shows up in the DC comics as well? I’m a fan of the horror story that’s going on here but have no clue what the ICM has to offer. Interesting enough to suggest the issue to anyone interested in horror stories, but not interesting enough to check out other issues.

OBLIVION SONG 1 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
I’ve been buying this series since I noticed my LCS had nearly the entire run for cover price, and I’m still missing about 4 issues, so I was holding them all until I had the entire run, but then I forgot I was doing that and read this one. Guess I’ll have to move up my purchases of the other missing issues so I can just read through them all asap, because I loved this first issue.

SENSATIONAL SPIDER MAN SELF IMPROVEMENT 1 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
I have no clue why I put this on my pull list. It was an ok story, but I can’t remember what the hook was that got me interested.

ISOLA 1 IMAGE FIRSTS EDITION Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
I was not prepared for how weird this story was going to be, but I’ll keep an eye out for trades at future conventions, it seemed interesting enough to read the full story.

CRIMINAL 1 IMAGE FIRSTS EDITION Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
Warren Ellis is one of the good writers out there, and this was a good first issue, but there’s no story elements that would make me come back to this.

SECTION ZERO 5 Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
This comic was not made available to me, either through LCS or Diamond problems.

GIDEON FALLS 1 IMAGE FIRSTS EDITION Comic Review for week of August 7th, 2019
I remember buying and reading the first issue of this series and not being interested in what they were putting down. That remains to be the truth.

Not new, but still needs a mention:
Robin: Son of Batman
LCS had nearly the entire run for $.25 an issue, so I grabbed these and read through most of them. Great art and great story, all featuring a character that I haven’t really had much exposure to, the new Robin, which is the actual son of Bruce Wayne. I missed out on all these shenanigans when they were originally happening, as I had checked out of the comic book scene for a bit, but I’m happy to have the opportunity to read them now.

    Valiant BLOODSHOT SALVATION #12  Aug 8th, 2018  ·  $3.99
    I’m not sure if this series is done now or even what it was all about.  I liked that they went back to 4001AD, if even for a brief moment.

  •  Comic Review for week of August 8th, 2018
    Marvel Comics EXILES #6  Aug 8th, 2018  ·  $3.99
    Still not as good as the original Exiles series.

  •  Comic Review for week of August 8th, 2018
    BOOM! Studios MECH CADET YU #11 Aug 8th, 2018  ·  $3.99
    First issue of this series that i’ve read and I’m completely lost.

  •  Comic Review for week of August 8th, 2018
    Image Comics PORT OF EARTH #8 Aug 8th, 2018  ·  $3.99
    Aliens are bad, but there’s hints there are worse things coming our way…

  •  Comic Review for week of August 8th, 2018
    AfterShock Comics RELAY #2 Aug 8th, 2018  ·  $3.99
    This is turning into more of a religious / philisophical series than I was expecting.  Not exactly a bad thing per say, just unexpected.

  •  Comic Review for week of August 8th, 2018
    Marvel Comics STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #19 Aug 8th, 2018  ·  $3.9

    Darth Vader: Baby Killer.  There’s a few things I’m ok with in comics, but killing kids as much as they did in this issue was stomach twisting.
