Not in the slightest, I'd be more shocked if a Shameless release hit the shops on it's supposed release date!

I'm curious as to which retailer objected to the artwork, and why. I'm guessing a supermarket rather than HMV, but could be wrong.

I've never seen a Shameless release in a supermarket yet.

If it was a supermarket who objected then that shows the new deal with Arrow / Sony which should help Shameless sales is working already, getting their titles into the public eye.

It could only be HMV or Zavvi, and Zavvi doesn't have highstreet stores any more.
I'd be surprised if it was HMV though because they have the DVD of Dellamore Dellamorte in stock in Liverpool and that's got boobs on the cover.

Presumably this is a comparison between the censored and uncensored front covers

I honestly don’t understand the problem. It was going to have a sticker over her breast on the uncensored one anyway, so you wouldn’t see it. Very strange!

Unless it was the pig sticker which was the problem, I don't understand the issue either. If anything, the image with the spear across her breast should be more offensive than a nipple because of allusions to sexual violence.

As a woman, I'm more offended by the unwanted hand on her other breast!

I'm imagining a lenticular cover with her breast/the spear playing peekaboo....
