Tara Shultz, 20, of Yucaipa, CA, wants to censor your library. She wants four graphic novels on the syllabus at Crafton Hills College banned. Why? Because Schulz thinks  Persepolis, Fun Home, Y: The Last Man Vol. 1, and The Sandman Vol. 2: The Doll’s House  will warp minds.

Now stand back and watch sales of thsoe titles rocket.

Schulz tells the  Redland Daily Facts Newspaper  –  and this is phrase all anti-censors should get on a T-shirt.

“I expected Batman and Robin, not pornography.”
Shultz has formed a group of banstubrators, one of whom is her father . He wants the books banned because get this  “there are under-aged kids here at this campus.

Says  Tara Shultz :

“At most I would like the books eradicated from the system. I don’t want them taught anymore. I don’t want anyone else to have to read this garbage.”

Ryan Bartlett, the professor who assigned the books, offers this response :

“I chose several highly acclaimed, award-winning graphic novels in my English 250 course not because they are purportedly racy but because each speaks to the struggles of the human condition. As Faulkner states, ‘The only thing worth writing about is the human heart in conflict with itself.’ The same may be said about reading literature. The characters in the chosen graphic novels are all struggling with issues of morality, self discovery, heart break, etc. The course in question has also been supported by the faculty, administration and approved by the board.”

The  Comic Book Legal Defense Fund  thinks Schulz is a censor:
