So I went ahead and purchased a three issue set of the Peach Momoko Cherry Poptart covers from Frankie’s as well as the Trade Dress Cherry and Darth Maul covers. They are doing exceptionally well on eBay. The problem is, eBay keeps pulling listings for violating their service terms for selling “adult material”. Now if you are unfamiliar with Cherry Poptart, it is a very graphic comic.
Needless to say, that stinks. I purchased for the flip and the only way eBay will allow them to be sold is in the other items> adult product category.
Cherry Poptart was a classic underground series. As someone with a fondness for wacky underground stuff, I have an affinity for the series. I ordered the Maul set as well as the Cherry set. I intend to sell the Maul as soon as I have it in my hands. I’m most likely going to keep the Cherry stuff or maybe just sell one of the covers. I like the one that has a trade dress and virgin where she’s leaning and looks chill. The lingerie one is posed oddly, I think.
If you are on eBay’s fantastic managed payments system, you’re gonna love this.::sarcasm:: You are correct that Cheery Poptart comics are considered “Adult”. Although, one look at the comic and anybody would call this tame by today’s standards. Just look at the numerous Vampirella, Red Sonja, or Deja Thoris covers that straight-up nudity on the cover. I digress.
If you are on eBay managed payments you are not allowed to sell anything in the Adult category…
So, can’t sell them in the regular categories. Can’t even list them in the adult category. Guess I’ll try my luck with Mercari and local OfferUp.
Why the ■■■■ do they have an adult category to begin with? I’m not against adult content or the human body at all. We all have one under our clothes. I’m against censorship and I see plenty of completely nude comics in the comics category. It’s even more ridiculous that if you’re in managed payments which everyone will be soon that you’re not allowed. Sounds like they’re doing away with the category.
Also Mercari sucks. Enjoy not getting paid til the buyer leaves feedback.
It was only a part of the title for a few issues and then Kellogg’s sued to get it removed. From there it became Cherry only. Also Archie sued them for a story in the first issue (only the first print and now the legacy edition) called Vamperonica (which they later used themselves) that spoofed Archie comics and had Veronica as a vampire.
