The Horror, The Horror

Reading a book right now called, The Horror, The Horror: Comic Books the Government Didn’t Want You to Read. The author, Jim Trombetta, writes about the early “golden age” of comics in the 50’s, when the industry boomed and was also scrutinized by The U.S. Senate. The comics were seen as too violent and corrupting the minds of innocent youth with disturbing images of monsters and death. Meanwhile, America is just getting over World War II and the tragic conclusion of it with the nuclear bombing of Japan…A reality much worse than ink on paper ever could be.
