CBLDF: Three Questions with comix creator Dean Haspiel

I answered three questions for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Here's an excerpt:

"Freedom of speech is as critical to my comix as oxygen and water are to my life. Whether it’s Nick Bertozzi drawing Picasso’s penis in The Salon, or Charlie Hebdo drawing controversial images on the covers of their newspaper or, more importantly, whether I like it or not, shouldn’t stop artists from expressing themselves. Hey, I’m a dyed-in-wool horror fan, but when America finally realizes that torture and decapitations make worse emotional impact to our psyche than an exposed nipple or a same-sex kiss on the lips, then America may have finally rid of its old, puritanical leanings and shifted towards a beautiful tomorrow enriched by diversity."
