Robot sex, a giant with five-story-tall sagging testicles, child prostitution, blood, gore, and erotic sexual images are all a part of the year-old, popular comic book Saga. These graphic images have not prevented Apple from selling the comic in its App Store, except Saga #12.  One would ask what could possibly be in that issue that would cause Apple to ban sales when it seems the creators covered every explicit topic in existence? The answer: two postage stamp-size images of hard-to-see gay sex. Brian K. Vaughn, writer of the series, released this statement Tuesday: “As has hopefully been clear from the first page of our first issue, SAGA is a series for the proverbial “mature reader.” Unfortunately, because of two postage stamp-sized images of gay sex, Apple is banning tomorrow’s Saga #12 from being sold through any iOS apps. This is a drag, especially because our book has featured what I would consider much more graphic imagery in the past, but there you go. Fiona and I could always edit the images in question, but everything we put into the book is there to advance our story, not (just) to shock or titillate, so we’re not changing shit.” Apple released a response statement claiming the issue will be available through the App Store soon and has denied the company has banned the issue.
