What better way to end Banned Books Week than this not *quite* safe for work gem by the inimitable Chip Kidd? Chip is not only the driving force behind Pantheon Graphic Novels, a legendary designer and author in his own right, but also an advisory board member for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which spearheads Banned Books Week, and without whom we would not be doing this!

Fight evil. Read books. Not just this week, but every week of the year.

We continue our Banned Books Week tribute with a quote from Marjane Satrapi. No stranger to censorship, Marjane’s amazing memoir, PERSEPOLIS, has been banned before (see the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s site) from Chicago Public School libraries last year and as recently as this Monday in an Oregon school district. Thank you, Marjane, for continuing to make your voice heard.

Chris Ware… what else can we say? We are always honored to show his work, and when asked to share his thoughts about banned books, he supplied us with this amazing piece of art. We couldn’t agree more!

(BTW, NYCC14 attendees—watch for bookmarks from our Banned Books Week series at the convention center.)

Hey readers! Some of our amazing artists gave us their thoughts on banned books and the power of the written (and drawn!) word. We will post one image every day this week in honor of Banned Books Week. Special thanks to Craig Thompson for giving us his thoughts.
