Wertham’s Most Wanted


Now this is a great treat.

To celebrate Banned Books Week, Stephen St Walley has provided a cornucopia of links to comics Fredrick Wertham mentions in his now infamous book Seduction of the Innocent. These are the scandalous (and not so scandalous) books that Wertham used to push for a ban on comics. I’ve only read a smidgen of the selections myself (the EC titles and some Ditko tales from The Thing), but I can’t wait to paw through some of these.
