As some of you know, I created and continually update a webcomic titled Boobgirl. The comic is about a busty superhero that fights crime with her breasts and comes across several wild characters who either join her or stand against her. It’s meant to be a comedic webcomic with plenty of fanservice thrown in. Despite this, there was always a set narrative within the comic and I’ve shared it on sites such as Imgur, ComicFury, and SmackJeeves.
Here is a link to the comic in question for reference.
Anywho, recently, I had to remove the comic from SmackJeeves due to “violating the terms of service.” More information here. imgur.com/a/pDCh1
As you can see, the admin of SmackJeeves essentially said that Boobgirl was highly pornographic and should be removed. I went ahead and removed it since the comic has a much larger following on ComicFury and more people comment on it there as well as my Patrons who enjoy early access to the comic.
Here is a quote from SmackJeeves’ terms of service on the matter.
“Material that would be considered legally obscene, including the depiction of child pornography, is explicitly banned from Smack Jeeves. Comics that present material with great (or sole) priority and importance placed on evoking sexual arousal from the audience while lacking substantial quality in art, focus or presentation on other topics of interest [ie: romance, comedy, etc] are liable to be removed for bearing too close of resemblance to pornographic material rather than a comic that tackles adult subject matters.“
Well shit, I guess that means Boobgirl violated those terms right? Except it hasn’t. Yes, I’ve shown nudity and blatantly stated she had numerous amounts of sex with other characters, but I haven’t yet shown any of that. Seriously, go and look at the comic and tell me if I’ve ever shown the act of sex happening in any panel.
Hold on…the thing is, even if I HAD shown that, it still doesn’t make sense. Take a gander at some of these comics that are allowed on SmackJeeves over my own.
A comic blatantly describing itself as hentai
A page depicting yaoi sex
Another comic based mostly on sex and fanservice
A page depicting actual penetration
You get the idea. Boobgirl violates the SmackJeeves terms of service, but none of these comics do? Sorry, but I’m not buying it.
DISCLAIMER: I’m in no way shaming the linked comics in any way, shape, or form. I’m simply using them as examples. I recommend reading them as plenty of them have wonderful art styles and very lovely designs. Read that shit.
Special thanks to my friend @insomniadrug for finding these comics for me.
So, there you guys have it. Make of this what you will, but I call bullshit on SmackJeeves for misinforming me and recommending I delete the comic.
Thank you for your time and I hope ya’ll have a nice day
