The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America David Hajdu (a book review)

I just finished reading this one and couldn't wait to recommend it to my readers! Lots of great stuff in here including interviews with most of the living comics luminaries that turned the medium into what it is today. It is truly amazing to read exactly what went on in this age of McCarthyism, the "red scare', and many other forms of censorship. Screw the bill of rights! Have we still not learned or does this thing (the Bill of Rights) only apply to those from which we wish to hear what they have to say?

I bought the ebook at but you can get the hardback from Amazon right now or you can pre-order the softcover (releasing in February) for a few dollars less. I highly recommend this one!
