Grindhouse Drive In, Bleed Out #7 was banned from being sold in Canada, here’s why.







We have some really interesting info on why Grindhouse Drive In, Bleed Out #7 was banned from being sold in Canada. Surprisingly enough, the Canadians are not those who are to blame, but Diamond is.

We have contacted the writer of the book Alex de Campi, asking her to tell us her opinion on the matter, and we got a really enlightening response:

“We were not actually banned by anyone in Canada -- only the USA's shambolic comics distribution service, Diamond, had a crisis of confidence and decided it would be better to not even TRY to show the books to Canadian customs officials. My honest opinion? I'm sad for all our readers in Canada who will not be able to get the book, and I hope their local comic stores can order it from a source other than Diamond (it will be available digitally on the Dark Horse Comics app but I respect that many people prefer to read it on paper). Otherwise, a little controversy never hurts. We always knew that we'd face controversy about Grindhouse's contents -- we've honestly been amazed it's taken until the second to last issue for someone to refuse to stock/distribute it! Although, the story is basically space erotica.”
