NSFW - Will CBCS Grade Adult Related Content3398

Collector JayLefler private msg quote post Address this user



Very unusual Image cover coming up from Erik Larsen's Savage Dragon title.

Might be first time a mainstream publishing company has produced a pornographic cover.

"The other company" won't grade adult content; wondering if CBCS would grade something like this?

That's a whole lot of censored hahaha

Regarding your question, CBCS' FAQ page doesn't specifically mention anything about NSFW comics but it does say:

"CBCS grades any and all mainstream comic books that will fit into our holder."

So perhaps there is a chance.

I haven't been able to determine if those "censored" images are actually on the cover or not. I'm tending to think they will be on the cover, but again, don't know for sure.

CBCS reserves the right to not certify certain comic books, including those that contain content that we consider "questionable," or that depicts sexual situations involving minors. This is at our discretion, and our judgement is not debatable.

Looks like it will ship in a bag to cover it up, but the final cover is not censored.

It's a judgment call when books are received. The general rule of thumb is that basic nudity will pass, but penetration or other hard core scenes get rejected.

Have you guys graded any books from the publisher Boundless?

Conan #24 was graded by CGC, in all its glory.

Never mind that I seriously doubt the Bikini Wax or "French wax" existed in the era of Conan.

I personally subscribe to Unholy from boundless and I order only the POV Nude covers. The cover price for the book with regular cover is either 3.99 or 4.99 but if you get the POV Nude covers they are all 7.99! My only gripe is the split the book with two stories by 2 very different creative teams and I would personally prefer they just stick with Christians art as he is the man! The best art I have ever seen! So much detail!

We have graded some, but rejected a lot of them.

And Trump is blasted for being uncouth. Sad.

SJWs can do whatever vile thing they want and nobody bats an eye, Trump makes a joke on Twitter and the whole world looses its mind.

Politics aside. Based on what Steve said, both these covers will most likely be rejected by CBCS.

The GWAR cover is neither hardcore nor is it penetration.

It could pass. But my gut says otherwise.

@b00ch the rules aren't etched in stone, it's whatever CBCS deems too offensive to put their label on it or subject their employees to it.

@DarthLego The GWAR cover is less graphic than anything on Game of Thrones. It is in the style of GWAR and what their shows are about. I think it'll be okay is my guess.

The subject matter is offensive, and if you can't understand why I don't know what else to say.

@DarthLego What is "offensive" is different for all people and art is subjective.
