Image Comics Warns Retailers About ‘Adult Content’ in White Trees #1 by Chip Zdarsky and Kris Anka

I was chatting with a few comic creators about the upcoming new comic book series White Trees #1 by Chip Zdarsky and Kris Anka at the weekend. Once described seeing a preview of the finished art as being ‘cocks akimbo’.

Well, Image Comics has decided that retailers may need a … slight warning. And have issued a statement to say that the first issue of White Trees ‘contains some adult content, rather than solely content suitable for mature readers.┬áRetailers are urged to bear this in mind when displaying and selling the book to their customers.’

None of that in the preview artwork of course.
