Absolutely. We will not print anything that is illegal, defamatory, or infringes upon the rights of another person or company.
But that’s probably not what you were asking about, is it? You’re probably asking about nudity and sexual content, huh? In that case, the short answer is this — We’ll print ‘R’, but not ‘X’ and certainly not ‘XXX’. It’s not a puritanical thing. Really. It’s based on sound legal advice we received and have chosen to heed, having to do with the voluminous and wildly varying laws around the country (and the world) regarding ‘obscenity’ and the transport thereof.
We’ve elected to print no comics (or comics related material) containing any scenes of an explicit sexual nature.
We also will not print — I shouldn’t have to say this … it embarrasses me a little bit that I have to say it —scans of pirated comics. Please don’t send them to us and expect us to print them. We absolutely will NOT do it.
We take copyright and trademark issues very seriously here. As mentioned above, we will never knowingly print anything that infringes on the trademark or copyrights of others. We have often refused print jobs because we had doubt — even over the protestations of the customer — about the validity of a print rights claim.
So please … please … do not send us files that you downloaded off of a pirate site — or scanned yourself from the pages of a printed comic — and ask us to print them. It’s not happening. Period.
