Pingo Posted April 14, 2017 Share Posted April 14, 2017 Interestingly, public book-burnings of comics had been organized in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Houston, Texas as part of the wave of anti-comic hysteria inflamed by Frederick Wertham's one-man anti-comic crusade. That's part of what flipped out the comics company owners and convinced them they had to crack down on things hard. (I always felt that Wertham, when there was anything at all to his fevered ravings, was taking out-of-context Easter eggs of bored young men, most of them military veterans, who were drawing the silly things at the times, and twisting them into a Malleus Maleficarum-level conspiracy of satanic youth-perversion. As opposed to, you know, some bored underpaid young guy sneaking a hidden crotch shot into his art.) 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
