The Code of the Comics

If you're like me and interested in the history of comics and the history of censorship in America, you might want to check out a new book by David Hajdu, "The Ten Cent Plague." It about the legislative efforts and the resulting self imposed censorship within the horror comic industry of the 50s. WNYC's "On the Media" has a great interview with Hajdu that's worth a listen.
