Comic with gay images banned from Apple Store


saga 12 comic image

Apple has been always against the apps depicting sexual content and they proved the same by banning the comic from Apple Store.The banned comic is the SAGA #12 which has 2 gay images.The writer of the SAGA comic said

 As has hopefully been clear from the first page of our first issue, SAGA is a series for the proverbial “mature reader.” Unfortunately, because of two postage stamp-sized images of gay sex, Apple is banning tomorrow’s SAGA #12 from being sold through any iOS apps.

The comic writer has also cleared saying

everything we put into the book is there to advance our story, not (just) to shock or titillate, so we’re not changing s**t.

The banning of the comic also questions the Apples stand on an app which was meant for mature users and so the users should have the say on such issues similar to Google play rather than Apple.

Though the comic is banned from Apple Store but the users can get the SAGA #12  from imagecomics, ComiXology and PanelSyndicate.
