Schools Ban Penis-Shouting Comic CEO

Share on Nextdoor


An Archie Comics CEO has been uninvited to tell kids at Gilles-Sweet Elementary in Fairview Park and two Elyria Catholic schools tomorrow about how comics are drawn up and produced. Is it because Nancy Silberkleit is credited with introducing a gay character into the Archie comics line and the kids might ask about that?

No. Way worse.

Silberkleit allegedly shouted “penis” repeatedly during a company Board of Directors meeting, which was presumably not attended by children, but some apparently fear the incident makes her likely to shout “penis” repeatedly in a room full of fourth-graders.

The Plain Dealer reports that the schools will, however, allow the Archie comic book sales (proceeds to benefit the schools) that were to accompany Silberkleit’s visit to go on as planned. Naturally.
