When Marvel’s Lauren Sankovitch left Marvel to pursue West Coast job ops, we were all sad to be losing a fine comics editor. Happily she is still keeping a toe in the game, as this release from the CBLDF reveals that she’ll be editing this year’s Liberty Annual, a fund-raising anthology published by the fund each year. So yay for Lauren! We may hear her karaoke yet again!
Included in the CBLDF release is news of their expanded efforts with retailer members and a very successful fundraising drive at the recent ComicsPRO meeting. All good news, as the CBLDF does a fantastic job of keeping free speech issues at the forefront of comics.
