Charles Brownstein has served as the Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund since 2002.  In that time, CBLDF has managed notable victories in both criminal defense cases and challenges to unconstitutional litigation involving First Amendment rights.  Brownstein speaks extensively on comics and law at venues all over the world, and his books on comics have earned prestigious awards within the field.

Brownstein says, “My career in comics has always been driven by a desire to promote dialogue about the unique relationships between creativity and commerce that make comics the most vibrant medium of expression in the modern media landscape.  Serving that medium by helming the organization that watches after the First Amendment rights it depends upon to do what it does so well is an incredible privilege.”
