Oops! NY Library Accidently Gave Out Erotic Comic Book To Families
Comic books have changed a lot since I would go down to the local grocery store and buy my favorites for 25 cents. I loved the superhero comic, Sgt. Rock comics and usually anything that featured outer space. I never bought a comic book that might be considered pornography.
This past weekend was "Free Comic Book Day" and all over the county comic book stores and local libraries gave out gree comic books to kids and families to encourage kids to read. Nice, right?
Well, one mature comic book was accidentally slipped into the gift bag that was given away to families at the Farmingdale Public Library. The comic was "Fungirl: Taled of a Grown-Up Nothing" a comic that is listed on FreeComicBookDay.com as "MR," rated for mature audiences and the blurb includes a sexual reference. You can see one of the pages from the comic below.
WARNING! YOU WILL SEE A DRAWING OF AN ADULT TOY.
It's unclear how the mix-up happened, but parents informed the library, which removed the comic along with two other comics with explicit language. Library director Debbie Podolski told said that the library will no longer participate in Free Comic Book Day according to WABC.
After doing a little more looking into Comic Book Day there are actually several free comic books that locations can give away with everything thing from family-friendly titles to titles for a more mature reader. It sounds like the mix-up at the Farmingdale Public Library was an honest mistake.
