Slash Portrait of Maggie Broon
A few years ago I wrote an article for Yuck 'n Yum, then in its first incarnation, called The Devil in Miss Broon. It was about a fictional clandestine network of Dundee residents who created violent pornographic depictions of the DC Thomson comic character Maggie Broon. The above drawing was an accompanying entry for the 2006 Generator Projects Members' Show.
Today a civil servant from South Shields was cleared of obscenity for writing a blog about the kidnap, rape and murder of the pop group Girls Aloud. The story itself is here for those who want to read it; the prose may be leaden but still I'm glad that it exists.
