Funky Winkerbean tackles Comic Censorship

The syndicated strip Funky Winkerbean has been running a series of strips since March 6 about a comic book shop owner who gets arrested for selling an adult magazine to an adult. I’m always a fan of artists who create strips from headlines and this story line is starting off well. Censorship of comic books has been going on for a long time and is usually so common that we’ve grown numb to hearing about it. With the emergence of web comics and the decline of print there will be a point where those people with nothing better to do try to apply the same rules now on print to web content. This will certainly be more relevant as more high profile web comics start to sell hard copy versions that can be bought by kids using their parent’s credit cards.
