In eight years we all get those cool rocket backpacks.
Peter David's blog has been running his old "But I Digress..." columns. The latest one, first published in 1992, has him taking obvious shots at the Comics Code. My favorite paragraph:
"What purpose does it serve? None that I can see. Keeping things suitable for younger readers? It’s hard to believe that, if the CCA vanished tomorrow, the floodgates of profanity, gore and sexuality would open in the average issue of New Warriors or Superman. I tend to think that publishers are very much aware of what their audience wants and expects from specific titles, and no one is going to go berserk if newfound freedom were bestowed."
Ha ha. Boy, glad that never happened.
(No, I don't favor censorship. Good judgement and restraint would sometimes be nice, though.)
Rather than make another post with my usual bitching and moaning, thought I'd put something related I'd found here in the comments here:
