Banned Books Week 2010: 10 Graphic Novels And The Shocking Reasons They Frequently Come Under Fire

What I don't get is the "Unsuited to Age Group" reason for removal. What age group would that be? People who think that all comic books and graphic novels are targeted toward children are seriously kidding themselves. I haven't personally read any of those in this list (yet), but I have at least seen the movie version of Watchmen (which is reportedly quite faithful to the novel), and that is no kid's movie. Once that's understood, most (if not all) of the other objections in this list become irrelevant.

In any case, I wholeheartedly agree with the quote in the article.
