Make Mine Marvel Content Edits

John Jakala notes in humorous fashion a series of scans showing changes up at a horror blog between a naughtier Marvel original and some newly re-published work; the difference between this instance and furor over changes in translated manga is that there aren't as many fans of Marvel horror books as a top-selling manga title and there's not a burning desire for authenticity fueling that audience. That doesn't mean they'll be happy, though, and it's always worth noting how various comics are being trimmed for the modern bookshelf, if only in that "All in the Family might be on HBO now" way.
