“They Are Peas in a Pod/Don’t You Think That It’s Odd”

imageThe Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) definitely goes for that Odd Couple vibe in its report of the teaming of Cerebus creator Dave Sim and author Neil Gaiman for a CBLDF fundraising opportunity (the print at left).
"Of those pieces which remain, Sim and Gaiman will both sign -- and
Neil Gaiman will complete -- one copy in November of each year (i.e.
#3/50 in 2005; #4/50 in 2006) which will then be auctioned on eBay to
benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, by way of illustrating in
as pointed a fashion as possible that even though Dave Sim and Neil
Gaiman are at diametric opposite poles on the political spectrum, they
will always be on good enough terms, personally, to cooperate in
jointly supporting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and the First
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America."

I just imagined Gaiman spearing Sim's cigar butt with his umbrella, didn't you?

The Fund also calls attention to this weekend's Fiddler's Green, a convention dedicated to Gaiman's extremely popular Sandman comic book series which the author and CBLDF board member will attend.
