    The problem is that the policy doesn’t draw a clear line as to what is “graphic sex”. Apple has previously allowed “Saga” to public a wide variety of sexual images including heterosexual sex and male genitalia. You can see some examples on this post:

    im not a graphic novel reader but after looking at reverendmagnett’s link i think ill read saga. those look fuckin badass.

    It is really one of the best comics on shelves today. As someone who spends upwards of 10 hours every week reading and writing about the medium, it’s my favorite comic currently being published.

    You can get the first six issues for only $9.99 at any establishment selling comics or check out the first issue free on Comixology. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

    cool, thanks

    I think Vaughn’s main point is that the comic has graphic representations of heterosexual sex without getting banned, and it was only this issue, with gay sex, that was banned.

    I suppose people for sex equality will be all hypocritical about this… Apple would ban images of sex, so why not same sex. I guess we should respect everyone’s beliefs and opinions… except white upper/middle class christian men…

    Wow first world problems here,

  • ReverendMagnett

    @gnomehole The issue is that they did not ban images of sex. Multiple issues of “Saga” have received no censorship, despite displaying graphic sex in a much larger and more obvious fashion.

    If you look at the work, there’s a clear double standard. Please check out my post below, if you want to check out the evidence.

    Just checked and Saga #12 is not available yet, but it’s in my reminders and when it shows up I’ll buy the first graphic novel in my 52 years on the planet. Shame Apple decided to pass on the revenue. Walled garden be damned – I’m syncing that b*tch to my iPads.
