Question 551: Meanwhile, In The Legion Of Doom...

Something happened in/to/on all of these comic books for them to have a common binding context. Give me this specific context. (yes, they're all comics; but that isn't the context!)





Answer:

All have been banned at some point.

Tintin in the Congo - for being deemed racist/violence towards animals
The League of EO Gentlemen - Black Dossier: banned by the American Library Association for being "unnecessarily sexually explicit" and "sexual violence" and "lewd aspersions cast on historical/literary characters"
Savita Bhabi - banned by the Indian government because it distracted court clerks and civil bureaucrats from their tasks of digitizing official state records/files (I kid)

P.S. - Savita can still be found (FREE) online here, here, here, here, here... you get the idea. Viva la revolucion`.
P.P.S - go buy the other two books. piracy is bad.
