Default Adult content warning

I say warning, though of course some don't mind adult content, but as some do, it should be apparent when you may access it. In issue 423 there's a feature titled 'The 100 best things you can download for free', item 48 is called 'classic comics'. The second link takes you to a site WU says is American comics, but the page the link lands you on is their collection of manga comics. Some of these are adult, and the cover pictures make this very apparent. It doesn't bother me, but I know some people won't want to go there, so I thought I'd mention it.

Oh blimey. Thanks for the warning, Jon98.

I swear that page didn't look like that when I wrote that part of the feature a couple of weeks ago - it was mostly Donald Duck and Captain Marvel! - but there seems to have an influx of, as you say, adult Manga, which I certainly wouldn't have linked to.

Apologies for any offence caused to anyone.

This link bypasses the Manga to go straight to the classic (and clean!) American comics: Classic Comics : Free Texts : Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

"it was mostly Donald Duck and Captain Marvel!"

These are not euphemisms that I'm familiar with, but I'll have a look anyway.

Nik (now where is that original link?)

Well done Robert, that was prompt action.

It's just occurred to me Robert, that as the link was in the printed WU it might be a good idea to repeat what you've said here in the next issue.
