I recently found out there once was
quite a bit of some controversy over the cover of one of my favorite comics as a kid.
It was Issue #48 of ALF (yes, he had his own comic, and yes again, 48 issues equal four years)…
Here’s the cover:
People took issue (“Ha! I kill me!”) with it because it appears that good ol’ ALF is having his way with the seal.
So for comparison, this ALF incident happened in 1991.
A way more controversial thing happened in 1986, in Issue #9 of Miracleman:
Well, I’m not going to post what happens inside this issue. You’ll just have to click here if curiosity has gotten the best of you. It’s not bad, but it’s certainly graphic, and definitely NSFW or comics.
I have not much else to say due to shock. And surprisingly, the shock isn’t from an alien fucking a seal…
I can honestly say this. The writers and artists of Miracleman are genius. And I’m glad Marvel Comics finally grew up enough to publish the series in full. Or perhaps that was Disney.
Either way, this is pure, shining gold. And I hope others follow in its stead.
