For three days in 1954, the US Senate debated comic books and their impact on juvenile delinquency. These Senate hearings nearly destroyed the entire comic book industry and resulted in the adoption of the Comics Code. Entire comic lines and publishers ceased to exist following these hearings. CSP presents these historic hearings in their entirety. Read William Gaines as he defends a decapitated head cover as being in good taste. Walt Kelly, Milton Caniff and others contribute memorable passages as well.
