slurkflickr‘s commentary on cleaning up her own artwork:
So as a general rule, my relationship with DC Comics when I worked on “Star Trek TOS” was pretty great. I had a fantastic editor, Margaret Clark, and I even got a decent inker once or twice- rare for a relatively new penciller. However, there was this one time when I was working on a big double size issue that was all about Kirk’s relationship with the mother of his child, Carol Marcus. This scene takes place when they are still at the Academy- it’s pre-Kobayashi-Maru- and in Kirk’s dorm room, I believe. I wanted it to be all sex-positive, with Carol layin all over Jim’s firm young butt. However, it was censored during production, and the art appears in the actual comic with drapery between Jim and Carol, up to Jim’s waist. Boo!
I did get away with drawing a condom wrapper on Carol’s nightstand, later in the story.
(for those not familiar with the comic art process, the x’s are to tell the inker to put a solid black in that area.)
