Check out some of the stuff the CCA put through and see why they never did comics any good.

Well, I won't press the subject any further, but I will say that I've noticed this: Everyone in the public and the media thinks that comics are for kids, except the people who actually make and read comics.

I think censorship is acceptable in the context of private, free market pressures -- I mean, it's pretty hard to argue that you have a constitutional right to be published. It's only when censorship is mandated by the government that it becomes an infringement of the First Amendment.

Take some of the Keenspace comics that are getting print attention -- in order for that to happen, You Damn Kid! has to become You Darn Kid!, and the comics featuring naked nuns have to be nixed from the print version. That's because the papers don't want PG-13/R-rated comics, and the reason they don't is because they're selling a product, and the public doesn't want that kind of material in said product.

Me, I think everyone should just take responsibility and rate themselves, be open and honest about what kind of content you're producing, and let the public make an informed choice about whether they or their children should view it.

LoneWolf23k Teen Titans has a character who betrays the teen titans and then repents and gets killed/stonerized which is not what I call a conscience free story. Another character that is going to destroy the world in the future and can seem to do nothing to stop it. Kids want stories that don't talk down to then but simply tell a story. If they didn't then Spiderman (90's), Gargoyles, and X-men would still be on TV years after the shows ended.

Plus have you actualy seen some of the CCA rules such as

The letters of the word "crime" on a comics magazine shall never be appreciably greater than the other words contained in the title. The word "crime" shall never appear alone on a cover.

No comic magazine shall use the word "horror" or "terror" in its title.

No unique or unusual methods of concealing weapons shall be shown.

Scenes dealing with, or instruments associated with walking dead, torture vampires and vampirism, ghouls, cannibalism, and werewolfism are prohibited.

CCA rules were stupid and lasted way to long.

Yeah, a lot of CCA rules were devised specifically to put EC Comics out of business. They had nothing to do with protecting children, and everything to do with leveraging public panic against a popular rival.

Anybody remember the Hays Code? For movies? Way way back when no villian could profit in a film, and reference to anything even remotely resembling sex or nudity was censored... Hitchcock showed a flushing toilet in Psycho, and that was considered over-the-line for the day. Double Indemnity had to evade the issue with slang and innuendo. In the original Ocean's Eleven, the group of good-natured, funny thieves do not get to keep the money.

Before the Hays Code, Tarzan and his Mate had some pretty explicit stuff in it. These days, even PG-13 movies can have realistic violence, profanity (to a certain degree,) and blatent references to sex that are anything but subtle.

Just mentioning.

Don't forget, the CCA approved this travesty.
