    Just some retailer the CBLDF is helping. Apparently the guy sold a comic with nudity in it to a 9 yr old kid. Nothing adult oriented but still risque. Here's the best article I can find that's just not "Make a donation"

    Thanks for the link Wrecker. That is an interesting story.
    The only donate to TFW2005, when needed.

    It's certainly seems to be an interesting story, but it'd sure be nice to actually read the other side of it, or at least read this side from someone who doesn't seem so emotionally tied to it.

    It does sound like a simple misunderstanding, but without reading both sides of this, I can't really form an opinion about it. I certainly wouldn't donate any money until I knew more.

    Anyway, my two cents.

    And now, back to forming opinions about toys and cartoons :D 

    Have fun, gang!!!

    I like how the article said the comic had "tasteful, non-sexual nudity" but the first thing on the link was the tastefully, non-sexually nude woman talking about masturbating.

    WTF is a 9-year old doing in a comics store? If he's looking for Little Johnny DC, they sell those in the grovery store. Otherwise ... his parents should be watching their kid better.

    Yes. All the depravities of the local comic shop. Little Billy should never be open to people behind a counter selling goods and services in the form of paper. Lets us Pray little Billy never make sit to a Chapters, Indigo or some other larger bookstore where the mind truly becomes defiled.

    I'd love to be behind this cause but my hate for Jim Lee is starting to become of Pat Lee epic proportion. I. Want. Wilds. Cats. #2.

    I donated to this a few years ago. Heaven forbid that kids see a cartoon drawing of boobies. He should see his first pair of boobs the proper way...through holes in the girl's locker room ceiling.

    Reading the thread title, I thought this would be some explanation to the incredible delays with any issue he draws these days. I've been anxiously awaiting Wildcats #2 as well. I don't even know that I'd remember what happened in the first issue at this point.

    seeing the image, yeah, the comic shop owner fucked up big time selling that to a nine year old. if I had a kid, and someone let my kid buy that, hell yeah I'd be talking to a lawyer.

    where's the link to donate to the prosecution?

    You'd have to lock your kid in a box then, because the real world is much worse then a "comic book".

    Did you actually go to the second article linked to and follow the check out what was sold? I'd be rather upset if my child read something like that too. It's anything BUT "tasteful, non-sexual nudity". Read the June 22 story.

    Agreed. Not to mention the swearing.

    The prosecution has been in trouble in the past because they keep changing their story on who exactly purchased the comic book.

    He didn't sell it to the kid. It was a left over comic from Free Comic Book Day that he gave to him by accident. By all accounts, it was an honest mistake. And while I don't know if I'd call the nudity tasteful or non-sexual, you know what I would call it? Harmless. Seeing naked cartoon people and a couple of swear words will in no way warp your child's mind. Sure, it might not be something you'd want your kid to see, but is it really something worth suing over? Worth destroying someone's livelihood over?

    This lawsuit is pointless. They are tying to make out this guy to be someone who gives kids porn on purpose like some dirty old man.

    It was a mistake, a stupid mistake, but a mistake.

    wait a minute! take a look at the actual comic the kid bought. what the hell was that? a naked picasso in a whorehouse or something. either the kid's got weird taste, or simply bought it for the drawing of boobies.
