Censorship in "The Black Max"?

Been reading this later tale of the fella, the one where he has an army of Bat People.

And its curious - whenever there's a full shot of the these naked new baddies, there's always a convienent black shadow in the nether regions.

I've included a pic to show what i mean.

Thing is, i figure if Font was drawing in a European style and including "bits", wouldn't the Editor have told him to pack it in?

In which case, the shadowy areas wouldn't be needed anymore.

But week in week out they're there.

So, what's the story?

All the art was done upfront before publication and they noticed it to late? They were happy just to cover it up? There wasn't actually anything there and Font's drawing just a lot of hair?
