CBLDF: "On April 3, CBLDF defendant Gordon Lee will appear before the court in Rome, Georgia to begin his trial on two remaining misdemeanor counts of 'Distribution of Harmful to Minors Material.' ... Mr. Lee's case first came to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund early in 2005 following his arrest for accidentally distributing 'Alternative Comics #2,' a Free Comic Book Day edition, to a minor. The comic book at issue included a segment from Nick Bertozzi's upcoming graphic novel 'The Salon' depicting Georges Braque's first meeting with Pablo Picasso, in which Picasso is shown painting in the nude. The comic depicted no sexual situations."
The Salon was originally serialized on serializer.net
