"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has unveiled Nick Klein’s Liberty Variant for Deadly Class #1, which will premiere this weekend at Wizard World Portland in Portland, Oregon.
Debuting today, the new Image Comics series by Rick Remender, Wesley Craig and Lee Loughridge centers on students at a high school for future assassins in the late 1980s.
“Launching Deadly Class to support CBLDF is such a great fit,” Remender said in a statement. “CBLDF’s work protecting creators and retailers makes it possible to do a book like this, where we get to candidly express the rebellion, individuality, and raw emotion of teenage life. I’m hope it helps raise some money for their important work.”
Limited to 1,000 copies, the Liberty Variant will be available at the organization’s booth (#646) for $10 to CBLDF members, and for $20 to non-members.
