    With such a large support group and fans I doubt these types of comics will be made illegal. That, and I highly doubt that there will be any cops wasting their time searching houses for the latest issue of Batman or Spider Man. They have more important things to deal with than a little revealing comic.

    --

    If this was put into place would it be illegal for me to buy children or young adults comic books?

    Yay, more censorship. I especially enjoy really vague rules about what is unacceptable.

    I doubt this will have a huge impact on comics. They're going to keep making them the way they always do. Frankly, I don't see much point to arresting people for reading Spider-Man when there are billions of things out there far worse that go unpunished.

    Ha. Be just like every other thing the gov't tries to ban. Of course, everyone will then go out looking for comic books.
    Who really cares? If it's mums & dads going out trying to get this stuff banned, put blindfolds on your children when you go down the street. More evil there than in your local sunday funnies.

    PS: Darkprinny; Yes, the bible, is quite graphic... If it was a movie, it would definitely be R or X.
    I know, I have read a lot of it... *shudders*

    er... i doubt that will affect comic at all. the article clearly states "solely or principally for the purpose of sexual arousal"

    and even if some people find poison ivy or catwoman attractive, the sole purpose of the publication is not to get your freak on.

    id lay money on this not happening.

    Oh, my good lord! That's a big one there ain't it! I really think this is weird. I get squick feelings from live-action gore and sex, whereas drawings don't bother me as much. Is this gonna happen in Canada or just to you blokes 'cross the ocean... I think just my Neon Genesis collection would qualify. I don't see what they're trying to do here.

    Oh, we're already there. It's just more subtle than Orwell described it.

    Lol, they grab a comic book that they feel will sexually arouse?

    So they tell you stand there, and then they show you the comic book?

    "Alright men, watch his pants for tenting..." :lol: :lol:
