There are a surprising number of folks out there who still believe that comics are just for kids. The medium and the industry yes, they are two separate things have grown in sophistication and craft over the past years as publishers strive to keep up with a base audience that craves more mature content that they can relate to. Some say this has contributed to the decline in sales the industry has witnessed over the same time period. Others argue that more complex stories and characters have allowed comics to grow into the art form they are considered today.
Adults-only and Underground Comix from Other Publishers
We like adult things, because it rings true. We also like comic books. Why keep these two star crossed lovers apart? You know, whenever we have sex, time seems to go real fast. Sex Criminals is an Eisner -winning comic is full of sex. But tell that to your boss when she sees you reading a comic about characters stopping time upon summation of the beast with two backs and using their powers to rob banks. And we love him for it.
