For those that don’t know, DC recently pulled a advertisement poster for allegedly being in support of the Hong Kong protests. The connections that supposedly made this poster pro-Hong Kong are tenous at best, but it was pulled anyway.
DC, we get it, China is a huge potential market that dwarfs the US, and you hope to get a piece of that business. Making money is a business’ number one objective, so maybe censoring yourself works out in your internal calculus. If so, maybe rework the math.
Censorship and accusations of being overtly political have always loomed over the comics industry. Thankfully, more often than not the industry has stood firm in its support of the creators, accepted the controversy and told the story anyway.
Show some moral courage and do the same here.
