image for Rio's mayor tried to ban book featuring kiss between two male superheroes. Now it's sold out

(CNN) An Avengers comic book featuring a kiss between two male superheroes has sold out at a Rio de Janeiro book fair after the city's conservative mayor attempted to block it from sale, according to Agence France-Presse.

Marcelo Crivella, mayor of Rio de Janeiro, said the comic's depiction of a kiss between two men was "unsuitable for minors.".

Crivella, who called homosexuality a "terrible evil" in his 1999 book "Evangelizing Africa," objected to a kiss depicted between the superheroes Wiccan and Hulkling.

By Friday, the comic had completely sold out at the book fair, organizers told AFP.

"As a result, we have determined that the Biennial organizers collect books with content that is unsuitable for minors.

The organizers of the book fair responded by filing a preventive injunction with Rio de Janeiro's Court of Justice Friday.

The book fair, which concludes Sunday, will host events on topics including "happiness, science, motherhood, theater, trans literature, LGBTQA+ and more," according to the Instagram post. »
