Since it debuted in March 2012, the popular comic book Saga has illustrated the following: robot sex, a giant with five-story-tall sagging testicles, a child prostitution ring on a brothel planet called Sextillion, blow jobs, fisting, interspecies erotica, and enough bloody viscera to make a butcher squirm.
But none of these are why Apple banned the most recent issue of the comic book from its App Store this week. No, Saga #12 won’t be available for purchase because of “two postage stamp-sized images of gay sex,” according to writer Brian K. Vaughn.

Update: Comixology CEO David Steinberger put out a statement this afternoon, claiming that the issue will be made available for purchase through the App Store soon. He also denied that Apple banned the issue, writing, “As a partner of Apple, we have an obligation to respect its policies for apps and the books offered in apps. Based on our understanding of those policies, we believed that Saga #12 could not be made available in our app, and so we did not release it today. […] Given this, it should be clear that Apple did not reject Saga #12.”
