In the last 24 hours there has been a lot of chatter about Apple banning Saga #12 from our Comics App on the Apple App Store due to depictions of gay sex. This is simply not true, and we’d like to clarify.
As a partner of Apple, we have an obligation to respect its policies for apps and the books offered in apps. Based on our understanding of those policies, we believed that Saga #12 could not be made available in our app, and so we did not release it today.
The app developer self censored. Further, after discussing the issue directly with Apple, they are releasing the issue. Considering Apple's previous track record on gay marriage, it's somewhat surprising so many people were so eager to claim this related to sexual orientation.
