symbiote81 Censoring artwork, of any kind, is not only indignant but it's un-American. #SaveTheCover #Batgirl #Joker #DCComics 1mon
  •   effyeahbatman Even if the artist himself wanted it retracted? 1mon
  •   symbiote81 @effyeahbatman Yes, because he only requested that it not be printed because of all the people acting all offended on Twitter. He was basically strong-armed into making that decision. If you're gonna let people like that control what you print then DC should print another copy of The Killing Joke and just pretend it never existed. 1mon

  •   effyeahbatman Well not everyone 'acted' offended, some actually were pretty critical of it. And I don't feel he was strong armed. His open letter was sincere and he took a step back from both sides and clearly evaluated what step to take. He decided to bow out gracefully. That speaks volumes, unlike other writers and artists who shrug their shoulders when a controversy occurs and points to the publisher for pulling content. Rafael is a pretty classy dude and I think a lot of people are ignoring that. If you respect his art, then encourage him to release prints. And understand that he himself understands why the cover caused some emotional feelings. This has nothing to do with being unAmerican. It would be unAmerican if our fine government stepped on DCs toes or issued sanctions against graphic art. That wasn't the case. Everyone has the *freedom of expression* but it goes both way to express critical opinions too. Just my outlook on it all. 1mon
  •   symbiote81 @effyeahbatman I get that. And believe me, I have no I'll will towards Rafael. But from what I've been reading people are offended by the artwork because of the implication of violence against women and because it makes Batgirl look like a victim. Wanting the art to be changed is more offensive to me because it's just like pretending that these things don't happen in life, as if women never get victimized. Not to mention they seemingly made the artist feel bad about his work and second guess himself. They basically attacked his artistic freedom and that's the problem I have with this whole thing. And that's not even the real cover, it's an alternate cover. When I see a variant cover that I don't like, I don't buy it. Simple as that. 1mon
  •   effyeahbatman I've been writing long winded arguments since I got home tonight so I'll just settle to agree to disagree with ya. Though I will say as critical as I was over the cover, I didn't expect for it to be pulled nor did i campaign for it to be pulled. Just like you suggested in your final words above, I just didn't plan on buying it. 1mon
  •   symbiote81 @effyeahbatman I respect that. That's a normal reaction. 1mon
