Censorship

24 04 2007

My hero, Nick Gurewitch, was interviewed in Esquire. His comment regarding what material was off limits for his comic strip was interesting:

Esquire: Is there anything you won’t joke about?

NG: No, I don’t see any reason to avoid a topic. If you can make a powerful enough statement, it provides an understanding of the miraculous and it’s entirely worth its weight in nastiness. You can make a movie like A Clockwork Orange and get away with showing an event like rape, and if contributes to a point that is marvelous I think you’re totally within your right to do so.

Well said, Nick. For those who don’t know how much I love it, go check out Nick’s comic, The Perry Bible Fellowship. Be forewarned, it’s edgy.
