Banned Books: Comic Books and Graphic Novels

With Banned Books Week drawing to a close, we are highlighting comic books and graphic novels. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) has a list of comic books and graphic novels which have been challenged or banned over the years. Some of the materials included in this list are Amazing Spider-Man: Revelations, Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again, In the Night Kitchen, and Watchmen, among many others. For the location and reason of these challenges, as well as to learn the outcome, see the original CBLDF post.

Author George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones, Wild Cards) has spoken out in support of Banned Books Week. His message can be read in a post on the CBLDF website.
