Gay Comics Publisher Declares Victory Over Apple

Northwest Press, a specialist in publising LGBT comics, has announced that Apple have approved a number of their titles without any issues, including one graphic novel featuring explicit gay sex scenes in its iBooks store,

This is quite a jump from from last year when the whiff of a gay kiss or a bare bottom was enough to get you booted from the system, as Steve Jobs declared the iPad a porn free zone

However, literary appeal seems to be making a difference, with Tom Bouden’s graphic novel version of The Importance of Being Earnest only approved with large black bars, now appears for sale without bars.

Teleny and Camille, Glamazonia: The Uncanny Super-Tranny, and Rainy Day Recess: The Complete Steven’s Comics can be found digitally in iBooks from Northwest Press right now.

Graphic novels such as Tim Fish’s Cavalcade of Boys and Tommy Roddy’s Pride High will join Northwest Press on iBooks soon.
