Banned in Canada: History of Underground Comics

I got an email from the author of Rebel Visions, a terrific history of underground comics published by Fantagraphics. He wrote: "Rebel Visions was busted in Canada! I sent a contributor's copy to cartoonist George Metzger, who called me to say he got a letter from Customs & Revenue that stated the book was obscene, and that it contained sex with mutilation, bestiality, and incest. I guess the bestiality must refer to Wonder Wart-Hog and Lois Lamebrain. I sent him a copy of your article to use as proof of artistic and critical merit. He plans to protest the seizure." Here's a link to my review in the LA Weekly. Link Discuss
