4.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: CENSORED, May 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Archers: Thorgal 4 (Thorgal (Cinebook)) (v. 4) (Paperback)
Cinebooks should be commended for publishing an English version of this classic Belgian comic series. Its a wonderful story, and a totally different approach to the medium than seen in america, with art that is head and shoulders beyond what you get in your average superhero book. Unfortuneately, this release is marred by censored nudity. There is a brief attempted rape scene in this volume and the publishers have added some cloth to cover the exposed nipples of the original. This was totally unnecessary as the original version was very tastefully done and the nudity was brief. Incidentally, a guy gets shot clean through the ears with an arrow on the same page; apparently the publisher had no problem with that.

Thank you for your valuable comment on censorship. Do you know if Cinebooks have censored other Thorgal albums/volumes too?
