Murderdrome Has No Place on iTunes, Says Apple
Publisher Infurious Comics has a state of mind reflecting its name right now: one of the company's comics has been banned from the iTunes Store due to its violent content.
August 28, 2008
As it follows, Infurious has posted the first issue of the comic online and asks everyone to leave a comment backing their cause:
“Here at infurious, we would love to work with Apple to ensure a content rating system can be put in place to allow material that is no more offensive than many of the R rated films available to download on iTunes,” reads the announcement.
“PLEASE leave a comment committing your support to us - we’ll forward ALL of these to Apple, so that we can ensure that not only Murderdrome, but that ANY comic submitted to Apple doesn’t fall foul of the same censorship.”
The episode is available here. We've read it: it's a bit violent and filled up with cliches. If we were Apple, we would've benned it for being totally not-funny.
