Pulp Demons: International Dimensions of the Postwar Anti-Comics Campaign

Synopsis

The campaign in the United States during the 1940s and 1950s to rid comics of their violent content had far-reaching and deeply felt reverberations. The anti-comics crusades led to book burnings, town meetings, Senate investigations, and the draconian Comics Code, recognized as the most oppressive act of self-censorship in the country's history. Pulp Demons is the first systematic study of the fallout of this American controversy abroad. Illustrated.
