Graphic novels and comics with sexual content are far more likely to be banned than their equally racy prose peers. Because they are visual, comics have an immediate, visceral effect. There’s something about an image that feels especially intrusive and offensive. If you don’t like a sentence, you can always stop reading. But you come across an image and there it is – bored into your brain, imprinted on your mind, whether you like it or not.
