No Sex Please
I’ll try to keep this one short and sweet and under 10,000 words. No guarantees.
As I’ve said here and on Deviant Art, I’ve been seriously thinking about continuing the Blonde Marvel comic strip as an R rated series. There would be no depictions of hardcore sex. No nudity. Sex and nudity would be hinted at (teased) but not shown on panel.
I’m considering this change because of recent and ongoing troubles I’ve had with promoting the comic and selling comics online. I won’t bore you again with the specific problems I’ve had with PayPal, Project Wonderful, Drive Thru Comics and the like. I’ll just sum it up by saying that if my comics were simply about men in tights punching each other’s guts out then I wouldn’t be having these issues. However, since my comics contain graphic depictions of s-e-x, there are far fewer opportunities as far as promotion and sales.
So those older stories that used to be on the site, the ones with graphic depictions of sex, bare tits and ass, as well as male and female genitalia, were removed in anticipation of a kinder, gentler Blonde Marvel series come 2015.
For those of you out there who still would like to read that old stuff, I plan to bundle it up into a PDF for y’all to download at a website not called Drive-Thru Comics.
Note: No firm decisions have been made yet.I’m still mulling over the idea of an R rated comic. I get the sneaking suspicion of late that even if I were to tease the nudity and hint at the sex I’d still be in the same situation I’m in now. I think the above named companies would still view my comics as “adult” and I’d have censored myself for no reason.
Well, I’m coming up on 10,000 words so I’ll wrap it up. Have a nice weekend, America!
