| Book Description: |
In their heyday, the top 500 comics sold over 60 million copies a month, and are still avidly collected. Nicky Wright tells the fascinating story of this highly creative popular art form from the 1930s to the 1950s, tracing its rise and eventual decline due to the self-censorship imposed by Congress and the churches. Highly illustrated, the book also covers the writers, artists, and editors of these classic works.
