I didn’t know the age restrictions tag was such a big deal for comic books these days (save for the ones that are really mature). I never really thought books from Aspen Comics were that risqué to warrant age ratings, but apparently those Michael Turner covers are getting people too worked up.

“We’ve listened to plenty of retailer feedback on the topic and took their insight to heart in our decision to initiate a new age rating on all of our future titles, and believe this will be able to further help our retailer partners determine the best way to stock and sell our books. With so many different genres in our library, we also felt this is the best way for new readers to make an informed decision on whether the book is a right fit for them or their children, as cultivating new readership is key to the future of our industry.”

Age Ratings begin with July’s Lola XOXO #1 and will appear on all future books from the publisher.
