Are you tired of ASBARTBW #10 yet? We’re sure many people are. As if the poorly masked swearwords weren’t enough, apparently a scene where Batgirl hits ’em where it hurts was removed, as tracked down by blogger Ty Buttars, who quotes inker Scott Williams:
And when the infamous All Star Batman and Robin #10 comes out in it’s sanitized version, this page will not appear as it does does here. Batgirl was redrawn so that she does not take out her attackers by putting the squeeze on the “jewels”. One of MANY alterations this issue has gone through.
Buttars links to a Spanish-language page by Ferran Delgado that has a before and after–you’ll have to go there for the full-sized injury to the nads.
Frankly, we’re a bit surprised that this was removed. Based on our recent moviegoing experiences viewing movie trailers — there is nothing funnier than an injury to the nads. It’s a universal law, like “Batman wins.”
