"The Governor" Returns In This Week's CBLDF Liberty Annual 2012!



This Halloween, amidst the ghosts and ghouls, we see one of the most vile comic book villains return in an attempt to fight censorship!

Image Comics has developed their fifth anthology benefiting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) this week, and it is full to the brim with some of the best talents in comics today! From Howard Chaykin and Sina Grace to Andy Diggle and Ben Templesmith, fifteen creative teams and solo acts have emerged from every corner of the industry in order to fight censorship!

Consisting of short stories, splash pages and some of the most eclectic images in the comics world, this $4.99 anthology will donate all proceeds to to the First Amendment legal work of the CBLDF, a non-profit group dedicated to protecting the free speech of the comics community. 

Who better to stand up for free speech? Why, The Governor of course! Robert Kirkman's most horrific creation to date, The Governor stars in his own short story in the anthology -- and is sure to be a fan favorite! If you liked the ending from Season Three: Episode Three, you will be pleasantly surprised by Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's look into the mind of The Governor in this tale. At least we get a better insight into just how and why he created his "special" room! Creepy!

So, be sure to pick up the CBLDF Liberty Annual 2012 this week and become a super hero yourself by helping fight censorship!
