Nuclear Stories - renewing the project

Posted by MavisRooder - January 2nd, 2022


To those who care,


I'm going to renew the "Nuclear Stories", but this time I am going to start it differently with a more accepting style. Putting it simply: I can't afford to have an opinion of my own. I don't have $120 mil in order to say openly what it's on my mind - like Richard Gere does.

Long story short, with not many details. My "original" first 2 pages with the porn parody comic based on the Fallout game made angry "some" people. No, it wasn't something illegal - or not at least by the laws of Europe or USA.


A lot of people complained and it escalated to high levels: unexpected and impossible to understand.

  1. I'm not a popular artist( yes, I'm well aware of that) but still it got me this far. Why ?!
  2. The results were bad. Some would say that there's no such thing as bad advertising, but in my case, there was no advertising. They just did what I'll describe below.
  3. I was not able to react or do anything in my defense.
  4. That was a silly porn comic and still, it turned out to be a political agenda or however they understood it.

I won't say who they are - I'm not a political artist. I want to make a living with drawing naughty cartoons featuring my own characters or known popular characters... anyways,.

The results were: my site was taken down for 4-5 hrs. I had a talk with the support - they told me the reason is illegal content. I asked them to check the site, they did and my site went back online once again with apologies. Then I got an e-mail from someone claiming to be regional CEO of the hosting company / and they later denied that they sent me such kind of e-mails/.

The e-mail was friendly and was asking me to take down only those two pages because some of the co-owners do not want to upset their partners - it shouldn't be a big deal - only two drawings, I can easily do a new one, but if possible not to draw or include that exact thing I did. I responded to this e-mail but I never got an answer back, then my e-mail client returned my e-mails because the email address/recipient didn't exist. When I wrote to the support I got a response that there's no such kind of CEO in their company. Yet as friendly advice it'll be better for me not to get troubles for nothing - after all: the holidays were coming. From Twitter, these two twits were censured (for violation of the community things or whatever)- but this time I didn't bother to ask them. I had nearly 800 followers on Twitter - it's not that much but I'm working on this. Immediately after the twits were deleted those went down to 600 or something... 200 people go away on a command ? And some of my fewer patrons went away with a complaint: He draws things that are not funny but are very offensive. I got hate two e-mails. And all of that for only two pages.

So... I just deleted these two pages - from my site, my Twitter (those twits are already deleted), from hentai foundry, from my patreon and from here - just in case. I just froze the project completely. I deleted my previous "rant" here as well.... we'll never know. And things went back to "normal". Check my twitter. It has again 850 followers. It was like I was put on a pause.


As far as I remember there was one response from a user over here on NG, who was saying something about these people - it was like: They don't have a choice.

My answer is there's always a choice: France, 5 May 1789 is a good example. But fuck it. Like I said I'm not Richard Gere and I need the money and the site.


A Conspiracy Theory here is not valid. There's no conspiracy. I've been told not to mock a specific thing, despite my claims that this is 100% based on the game story, which is absolutely fictional and this is a comic - therefore should not be taken seriously, but yet... Do you remember Charlie Hebdo - people died because other people didn't have a sense of humor and the satire is offensive.


BTW /Edit/ : some of my patrons were aware of what was happening. I've got advised to change the comic and start a brand new. And I am doing exactly this. It's safe.


Happy New Year, btw.

Sry ya had to deal with that.

when will people understand that art isn't inherently political and that a piece dealing with FICTIONAL politics does not necessarily correlate and/or allude to a real life counterpart of it.
Sad to see internet politics and a buncha idiots got in the way of your work.

It always sucks when bullies get what they want through government sponsored cancel culture. Also, thx for dedicating a whole small paragraph to some shitty comment I made. I'll tell my children about the day the famous MavisRooder quoted me, forgot my name, and called me "a user over here on NG" lol.

Dude, So sorry Fuck All these people making it hard on the lives of the preverted community.
