The Horror: Comics, Censorship, and the Comics Code

Monday, September 28, 20203:30PM - Monday, September 28, 20205:00PM
At Zoom

As part of Banned Books Week, Professor Scott McDarmont will explore the “Comic Book Scare” of the 1950s (mostly centered on Dr. Frederic Wertham's book Seduction of the Innocent and his allegations of comics contributing to juvenile delinquency) and how comics have become closer than any medium to having content dictated by the federal government.
