As of now, the Amazon listings for Justice League: Breakdowns and Green Lantern: Hal Jordan Vol. 2 have both been made “unavailable for sale”, and can no longer be directly searched for on the site. They have also been dropped from the Edelweiss site.

The first one was going to collect the “Breakdowns” crossover that ended the Giffen era of the Justice League books, including seven Justice League Europe issues scripted by comic book writer Gerard Jones.

The second one was set to collect the first 12 issues of the 1990 Green Lantern series written by Gerard Jones.

I understand that this is down to the arrest of Gerard Jones on child pornography and related charges, to which he is pleading not guilty.

His work also appears in the just-released Green Lantern Vol 1 which had already hit distribution

It remains to be seen whether The Flash by Mark Waid Vol. 2, which is set to include 3 Green Lantern issues written by Jones (#30-31 and #40) due to crossovers, will have its contents changed.

I did want those GL collections, but I'm not surprised they got cancelled
>>
I have no idea who Gerard Jones is and I know nothing about this situation but isn't this completely fucked up considering he was arrested on SUSPICION of child pornography offences and has not yet stood trial?
>>
>>89546256
DC's cancelled shit for less, even if Jones is declared innocent there's still be a stigma
>>
Thanks for nothing, Jones.

I guess the same will go for the rest of his comics? Boris the Bear, Wonder Man, etc.
>>
>>89546256
I can already see the headlines:
>DC Comics funds pedophile's trial bills
>>
>>89546304
Like Marvel was ever going to do a Wonder Man collection anyway
>>
>>89546205
So wait he isn't even guilty yet?

Like does DC expect him to be found guilty? Or are they just stopping any affiliation at the drop of a hat.

When it's a matter of Think Uf Da Chillumnz, you're guilty until proven innocent by a complete landslide of evidence in your favour and probably not really even after that.

damn, damn, damn, damn. FUCK. We're never gonna get complete JLI huh.

Gerard Jones, Micah Ian Wright...what other DC writers were a burst pimple?
>>
Even if he's guilty, why do the comic books collections have to suffer?
>>
>>89546404
John Byrne, of course. And Chris Claremont.

>>89546429
DC has many enemies. If DC reprinted those books, even if the money went to victims of child abuse, they would accuse them of supporting a pedo.

It's a lose-lose situation. There is no winning choice.

> Michael Bodley of the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Gerard Jones was arrested by police on suspicion of possessing more than 600 child pornography files, and uploading graphic videos to YouTube. And according to police, that he was booked into jail on suspicion of possession of child pornography, production of child pornography, sending harmful material to a minor and distribution of child pornography. The report states the uploaded videos depict a child performing sexual acts on an adult. And police state other videos showed adults performing sexual acts on children as young as one year old. The report also states that police are investigating the possibility that Jones traveled to London to have sex with a minor.

I wonder if this will affect the releases of Dragon Ball Full Color in North America, as they use his old translations.

They always can make new translations.

When USA had become a communist country?
I always thought that USA was for capitalists?
>>
>>89546582
Even if he somehow is found innocent he'll never live a normal life ever again.

Now someone post those "out of context" GL panels from issues he wrote.
>>
>>89546205
I guess there won't be digital rips either?
>>
>>89546256
The accusation alone can destroy your career. It's the reason women who want to get back at men accuse them of rape even if they're innocent, the noteriety from the accusation will cost them almost everything and if they're really unlucky, maybe even jail time.
>>
>>89546645
At their core, the USA are not communists nor capitalists... they're puritans. Which is the worst thing of all.

It's already available digitally https://www.comixology.com/Green-Lantern-1990-2004/comics-series/6374

thanks, you pedo-promoter

Yeah, they had appeared years before this happened. I guess CMX will delete them?

The nerve of this anon.

only if you don't know how to market it
I mean, comic books are for children, and pedos like children. 2+2=4

Well shit, that is terrible. You have to wonder how this kind of shit happens. You spend years writing stories about super-heroes and then you decide that having sex with a one-year old his hot.
>>
>>89546818
I doubt it
>>
>>89548743
Well, they should. Although DC surely will have the comics taken down from CMX too?
>>
>>89546369
Wait till he dies
>>
>>89548884
>Well, they should

For what purpose? Tons of perfectly good comics taken down because he became a kiddie-diddler 30 years later?
>>
>>89548950
Read the OP, pedo. Anyone selling Jones books wil be accused of supporting him.
>>
>>89546776
Meanwhile, the Justice League Europe/International is still not availiable digitally
>>
>>89546205
These will cost a fortune in a few years

I guess those retarded politicians in Finland claiming Dragon Ball normalizes pedophilia were right after all.

What's a burst pimple?

Shit, forgot the post id

>>89546404
>>
>>89549575
They cost a fortune now.
>>
Whyyy? Can't they just take his name off the books and release them? Will we EVER own all of JLI in trades?
>>
>>89548653
>You have to wonder how this kind of shit happens.

Brain damage and brain tumors, assuming he wasn't always a pedo.
>>
>>89546620
I doubt it. They can find a loophole so they don't have to credit him or put his byline in fine print. they're not going to spend the money to have them translated again if they have good translations ready.
>>
>>89546582
A reminder that he wrote this.
>>
>>89546205
Not surprising. A company will treat a a former employee like they never existed if there's even a hint of suspicion that they committed a crime. As far as the WWE's concerned, Chris Benoit never worked for them.
>>
>>89546742
I fucking wish we were Puritans, at least then we'd be consistent.

Besides, I wasn't interested in fucking breakdowns, I want the Griffen volumes continued. Not skipped over.
>>
>>89550487
To add on to this, it makes me happy I can pirate comics. Getting official reprints with his name on them probably wont happen from this point on.
>>
>>89550530
Giffen did write Breakdowns though.
>>
Maybe they could tell those stories again but with a different writer?
>>
>>89546742
This might be weird to you but a lit of people don't like the idea of someone fucking children. Even hardcore criminals hate pedophiles with a passion so fuck off with your edge
>>
>>89550694
>Even hardcore criminals hate pedophiles with a passion
Welp, Jones won't last much in prison.
>>
>>89550553
Yeah, but it wasn't the best stuff. What made JlI so good was the one-offs. The Cat issues. The Guy/Ice relationship. Spending five issues taking the piss at Captain America.
>>
>>89550535
No, in America you can have a drivers license after dozens of DUI's. You can run a scheme that defrauds millions and pay a fine. Its the most bizarre fucking double standard.

People can lose their business for not serving a gay couple, but somehow the government can't stop people from owning assault rifles.

Still, it could be worse. At least he wasn't having dogfights.
>>
>>89550936
NAMbLA pls
>>
At least he isn't Jared '5.6 terabytes of child porn' Fogle
>>
The best solution? Some kind scanner make high quality scans of his books. They did that with Miracleman some years ago and the results were excellent.
>>
>>89550993
Don't get that, but okay. Honestly I'm still floored by the one year old. How do you...with a baby? I know he's from San Fran but damn.
>>
>>89546325
yeah, pretty much this. The press is always looking for anything they can use to rake DC over the coals, and this would give them a lot of ammo.
>>
>>89550451
What if the "child pornography files" were stock photos? I'm pretty sure every anatomy book I've ever seen has at least one drawing of a baby dick.
>>
>>89551237
You probably don't need 600 photos of children doing sexual acts for artistic reference, anon.
>>
>>89551125
I'm on 4chan since 2013 when I was 15. The first month I was here I almost quit because I got paranoid when I saw a POV shot of a guy standing over what I suspect is his own baby with his dick out, and the baby was holding on to it. I reported it immediately and it got removed soon, but you can see what kind of place 4chan was even 4 years ago.
The funny thing is that I am a lolicon and regularly fapped to lolis and pictures of children even then, but that picture weirded me out.
Who wants to see babys or one year olds be raped? That's just weird. I've tried toddler loli porn, but I can't seem to ever find it even remotely hot.
So yeah, Gerard Jones has shit taste in kiddie porn.
>>
>>89551521
Edgy, kid.
>>
>>89550787
He'll most likely end up in a sensitive needs area or put in isolation because wardens know putting a pedo in genpop is a death sentence
>>
>>89550936
>The second amendment doesn't exist
>>
>>89551588
Including wardens who have children?
