PSYCHE! Banned again! I'm really getting sick of the censorship. Erotica is allowed in ebooks UNLESS THEY'RE COMICS. And even so they do allow it--if your name is Chaykin or Crepax. But if you, say, parody Crepax? (OH) Nuh-uh.
While I love the work of Chaykin and like most of BLACK KISS 1 & 2, it's also true those books are violent rape cover to cover. Why is that allowed all over but this, which is definitely nowhere near as extreme, and is in fact satire, not? This is name privilege and it's a disease in this medium. I'm not saying Chaykin should be banned, I'm saying if he's allowed I should be too--if content is the only issue. It's not. (note: I'm not blaming Chaykin, I'm blaming the gatekeepers. Chaykin is awesome regardless) It's hypocritical bullshit and ridiculous in this day and age. I'm pretty sure I will never be allowed to sell these again. Nevertheless, they are available. They're back up for free, and no one can remove that. Click here and here. (NSFW) Fuck censorship. But I have to make comics I can sell. So as they block me from the marketplace if it's anything as explicit as VLADRUSHKA...they win. You probably won't see any of her again, or anything like that. But maybe not, because this is even more reason to give to my brand-new Patreon, because then I can just put it on the web for you and not be as concerned about selling it later. Pledge now!
(Also, don't forget about my awesome art and magazine auctions this week...if a cartoonist can't make money one way he tries another...) SO angry about this. __________________
