Marvel Comic’s Bleeping Black Bars

Way to go Marvel Comics for choosing to place black bars over “explicit” words instead of using the old %!@# I first saw this in last month’s Uncanny X-Force #1 and loved it! I’m sure Marvel isn’t the only company doing this but I’ll applaud them for making me feel so naughty with their little black bars. Oh, below is a page from Uncanny X-Force #1 and an old issue of Deadpool. I’ll let you decide for yourselves how you’d like to see “profanity” portrayed in comics.

    Hahaha! My first experience with “profanity” in Marvel comics was in the 2005 or 6 “Spider-Woman Origins” comic. I thought the whole $#!% thing was pretty weird! I saw the black bar for the time in Adam Warren’s Empowered comic. I completely agree with your opinion on how to handle “explicit content” in comics (when there’s no other choice, of course).

Got something to say? Go for it!
