I'm currently writing my first comic script (Detective/Horror) and the lead character has an R-rated vocabulary. (The story might also contain some borderline graphic graphic violence and gore if that matters).
The only comic I've read with a similar use of the english language is "The Walking Dead". So I know it's not completely taboo, but it doesn't seem very common.
I think the language serves the story and the characters and would hate to see it go, but if it would get in the way of publication, I'd think about altering it.
Do you think it can hurt the chances of the comic be published?

At some point I'll probably post the script here at PJ for some crits. What's the policy concerning profanity? Is it allowed? Can I just use asterisks for the vowels in the words, or do I need to use symbols for all of the letters (I hope not). Or would I be required to link to the script?
