Black Kiss II comic book banned in Canada and UK

Howard Chaykin’s Black Kiss II is sexually graphic and disturbing, so much so that it has now been banned in Canada as well as the UK. It was banned in the UK after being held by customs for its obscene content. Diamond Comics UK is the main distributor of the comic and has sent letters to retailers explaining that because of the obscene content, the comic will no longer be distributed in the UK, despite the previous issue of the comic selling out in the first week. Thankfully if you want a dose of the disturbing comic book it is available to download digitally on Comixology (although maybe check out some previews first to check you can handle it!).
