The latest case of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is the arrest of a comic book retailer for "distributing material depicting nudity" and "distributing obscene material to a minor." The offending material in question is a part of Nick Bertozzi's The Salon, available online at Modern Tales sister site Serializer.
The case involves retailers Gordon Lee of Legends in Rome, Georgia who was arrested, according to the CBLDF, after a copy of Alternative Comics #2, the Free Comic Book Day Edition reached a minor during a Halloween giveaway, and the childâ€™s parents filed a complaint with the local authorities.
