Some Thoughts About The Mistrial in Georgia

So, the Gordon Lee case ran off the rails almost immediately--resulting in a mistrial. The DA has announced he intends to try again. All of that means that the legal bills will continue to mount.
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund will continue to focus on this case well into the next year.

As I'm sure most of you know by now, Beanworld has been active (in its modest way) helping raise funds for CBLDF with my Beanworld Orphans. I will continue to create drawing and other art objects for CBLDF to utilize to raise funds for the defense of this trail.

The recent developments in Georgia have been just jaw-droppingly astounding to me. But I learned a long time ago, you can never really anticipate anything when you enter into a judge's courtroom.

Jeff Smith has penned an eloquent open letter to the comic book community at large and I urge you to click on the link and read it--if you haven't already read it on another site or blog.

When you get towards the end of the letter you will find my name listed along with some of the biggest names in comics:
