    When I was 10 or 11, "V" was still a big thing and they were publishing novels. Man, those things were FILLED with graphic sex, violence and swearing. Far beyond what you would have expected from the tv series or even the DC comic. I didn't tell my parents that though, and they kept buying them for me. Then I started reading things like Clive Barker, which should have been fairly obvious what was in those but I still didn't say anything.

    I think the "naughtiest" comic I was reading at that point was Moore's "Swamp Thing" run.

Convince yourself they're cheering for you. You do that, and some day, they will. And that's how Sue Cs it."- Sue Sylvester, "Glee"

    If you are underage and living in your parents house, it most certainly is their right.
    Edit: I'm not saying it is always the ethical thing.

    Indeed. And people aren't going to agree about things like that.

    I never did restrict what my daughter was exposed to, and wouldn't have even thought of ever telling her she couldn't read, see, or have something, unless there were other reasons. Obviously, if there was a significant chance of bodily harm, but otherwise, it would only have been as punishment for misbehaving. I've got no problem with a 12 year old reading all the horror novels that exist, Gor novels, and 50 Shades of Gray. I was reading similar things, heavily into Dungeons & Dragons (and there was nudity all over many of the rulebooks), listening to punk rock and heavy metal (and other things parents were screaming about) at that age.

    But to each parent their own...

    It was all a matter of wrong place at the wrong time, cause what I was reading was one of the more shocking parts of the book

    Well, I suspect that here it would be less cut and dried depending on the age of the "child" (a teenager would not really be regarded as a child in many respects, underage or not) and the nature of the possession.

    Bloody Mary is alright, but it is Esquerra's art and the fact Ennis nukes Birmingham that makes it better than it is.

    Under the age of 16 you're still officially a child and under the custody of a parent or guardian who can do what they want as long as it's ethical and legal. If a bunch of jazz mags are found under some kiddies bed and a parent chucks them out then there's nothing the child can do about it. At 16 it becomes vastly different.

    They seem to have phased that out at a really early stage then.

    I'm probably a little bit old fashioned, but I'm with OP's mom on this one.

    While I'm all for freedom of expression, something doesn't quite sit right with me when it comes to stuff like 'Crossed'. I'm not saying it can't or shouldn't exist, but I do have to wonder about the sort of person that actively enjoys reading something like that. From the creator's POV, it's existence makes perfect sense: it's a cathartic exorcize to expell negative emotion/impulse/thought. From a reader's standpoint, it makes no sense to me.

    Were I to discover my child reading something like that, I would probably have flipped out too. It would have been followed up though with an apology for my reaction and attempts to understand why my child would be interested in such things.
    Freedom is merely the ability to live without fear of persecution.

    Yeah... 2nd Edition, when they ditched the demons and devils for Tanar'ri and Baatezu.

    Crossed is basically the furthest Ennis has ever gone and ever will go.

    The Lapham and Delano Crossed: Badlands stories have gone further still, but they suck so there's probably a lesson here. (Simon Spurrier's on record as being a bit disappointed when people only want to talk about the gory bits in his Crossed story)

    Yeah, I have read Crossed and I do like what Ennis did but I really didn't like Psychopath because the story just plain sucked ass. I have yet to dig into Delano's stuff yet.

    There's definitely some bad stuff but you know, the covers are really bad(or rad) too. You can judge this book by it's cover, because it's cover usually has someone getting killed or thrown out of a plane or picking eyeballs out of a box.
