Wily Miller took another not-so-subtle jab at newspaper editors and their over-sensitivity this last Sunday’s Non Sequitur. Taking a shot at editors isn’t exactly new for Wiley. The most interesting thing I’ve learned out of Wiley’s Mohammad series is this gem from Bob Harvey’s post in today’s Comics Journal:
As of Monday morning, Wiley told me, he hadn’t heard a peep of protest from the cowed press. “But,” he added, “you know how it is. Editors only read a comic when it’s shoved under their nose by someone asking if it’s ‘too controversial’ for the comics page.”
And Wiley took precautions against such a derailment. He has forbidden, as a matter of policy, his syndicate to ever again send subscribing newspapers “warnings” about potentially inflammatory episodes of Non Sequitur.
No more warnings. Editors have now been… warned.
