Official Press Release

Things From Another World is proud to announce the addition of Jim Lee to their Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event. The legendary artist, founder of WildStorm, and Co-Publisher of DC Comics will donate an original sketch to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for their annual auction at San Diego Comic-Con.

Lee burst onto the comics scene in the late 1980s with his work on Uncanny X-Men, and in 1991 he launched the series X-Men as both the artist and co-writer. In 1992, he was one of six artists to create Image Comics. Today, Lee is a major architect of DC Comics, one of the largest comic book publishers in America. This makes him a powerful force when it comes to protecting the First Amendment rights of the comics community.

In recent years, Lee has been drawing some of DC's most iconic characters in All-Star Batman and Robin, Batman: Hush, and Superman: For Tomorrow. Fortunately, fans can get a copy of his CBLDF sketch: TFAW will be creating limited-edition autograph cards of all of the artwork donated by their participating publishers and creators, which will be distributed for free at SDCC this July.

"We are extremely pleased to welcome Jim Lee to our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event," said TFAW Director of Marketing Andrew McIntire. "Not only is he a phemonemal artist, but he is a major figure in the future of the comics industry."

Lee joins an esteemed group of creators who are supporting this CBLDF fundraising event, including Guy Davis, Jeff Parker, Tim Seeley, Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon, and many more.

If you're a comics professional who wants to get involved, TFAW will gladly accept new participants up through July 9.
