Kurt at Groovy age of Horror, the blog that discovered the TOMB OF DRACULA censorship issue, is back with a very long post on all kinds of censorship issues, including links to the material that conservative watchdog groups use as primers to pressure the removal of such things as magazine and breastses and so on:

Response to the Censored Essentials post really caught me by surprise, and I’ve been following it with much interest. Thanks again to Groovy Age’s own Andy Decker for supplying the scans, and to Bill Cunningham of DISC/ontent for starting the snowball rolling. One interesting exchange takes place in the comments of Heidi MacDonald’s The Beat. While I don’t think she’s quite guilty of what Dirk goes off about, I’m glad he addresses an issue that inevitably comes up whenever anyone expresses an interest in nudity or sex in comics or animation. Here’s one forum that also picked up the ToD Essentials topic, and here’s another. There are a lot of other sites that linked to the post (click “links to this post” to see them, or scroll down if you’re viewing the post on its own page), and I’d recommend checking them out for other perspectives on the matter.


There is a rather long argument with another blogger, but also some good links for exploration of related topics.

Comments

  1. Thanks very much for putting this whole thing in front of a much wider audience than I could have ever done, Heidi! I appreciate the links and the way you’ve been covering it.

  2. P.S.–I’m afraid I can’t take credit for having “discovered” this, since I read about it first on Wikipedia. It may be that Groovy Age was the first to dig out the “smoking gun” panels and post them to the internets, but I’m less concerned about that sort of thing than I am pleased with the attention the issue has been getting. Also, great job by Around Comics in getting/posting Gene Colan’s remarks on the matter (as I see you’ve covered here, too).
