The 10 Cent Plague – History of the Seduction of the Innocent

Do comic books contribute to juvenile delinquency?

Spearheaded by Dr. Frederic Wertham and his infamous book “Seduction of the Innocent” the U.S. Congress conducted hearings on this very subject.

Author David Hadju’s book, “The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America” delves into the subject. He talks about the book and the 1950’s scare in the video below. Definitely a must read for comic book collectors.

While your at it, you might as well pick up a copy of the original book itself!
