BREAKING: Double Take Promotional Posters BANNED From NYCC for Obscenity

In what is totally not a publicity stunt that we're willingly participating in, Double Take's posters were "flagged" for being "suggestive."



Beloved Outhouse sponsor Double Take has been BANNED by New York Comic Con! Or at least, some of their posters have been. The company purchased an 8 ft tall meterboard (whatever that is) to be placed in the lobby at the Javits center advertising Double Take's comics, but according to our sources, a representative from NYCC showrunner Reedpop called the artwork Double Take wanted to display "suggestive" and demanded they revise it. Based on every internet controversy where a company declined to publish artwork, we must conclude that this is censorship most foul, and we won't stand for it!

Wait a minute, they're still paying us, right? Yeah? Okay.

We won't stand for it!

By god, if Zenescope can have a booth at New York Comic Con, and Frank Cho can sell his "outrage" drawings, then who is NYCC really trying to fool here?

Check out the posters Double Take has had BANNED from NYCC, and let us know what you think:

Yup, we wouldn't want innocent congoers seeing something like that in the lobby before they go into the con to buy something like this Zenescope NYCC EXXXCLUSIVE, would we?
