Yeah. Unlike the gory fluffy pony torture, the smurf shit mainly revolved around a guy abusing baby smurfs in ways that are eerily similar to how pedo parents irl abuse their children, and it was under the guise of being a sweet story about how this guy saves the smurfs from abusers - giving the artist an excuse for vividly describing how these evil, evil, bad people had tortured theses poor baby smurfs.
It is so strange to see the comments, all sounding like adoring middle-aged women who just really like smurf babies and want to take "care" of them. They were appalled and in complete denial when someone pointed out the fetishistic/sadistic nature of the comics, insisting it was innocent and about 'healing' and a guy saving and taking care of baby smurfs. I wonder if they truly did not see it and didn't recognize that whatever satisfaction they got out of reading it was a fetish thing.
