To be fair, Apple has also been banning French comics featuring -- *GASP!* -- WOMANLY naughty bits on display! :shock:

So the only one who understands what standards are now being applied and how they are applied is Apple.

Wow. CBR didn't censor those preview pics. They're usually a lot tighter on mature stuff like that.

Yup. It's proving to be easier to censor or alter content with digital media.

For comparison's sake, how was the removal of Black Kiss 2 treated by the industry?

I don't see Apple changing their ToS.

But yeah, it could be changed.

I bought this for my children to read, expecting it to only feature child-appropriate material like sex with topless mutant spider women, and was really appalled to find it had gay stuff in there. I hope Image learns a lesson from this and sticks to showing 20 foot tall giant testicles and stays away from homosexuality.

No you weren't. :P
