REFORM SCHOOL GIRL

One of the defining comics in Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent was...
...but the book is so rare that we're presenting the b/w 1989 reprint!
(Our copy of the 1951 1st edition is "slabbed".)
Ironically, this story is a case of Fredric Wertham totally-overdoing the hyperbole, like he did with Teen-Age Dope Slaves.
It's actually a fairly moralistic tale featuring an innocent girl who stops just short be being led astray, then reforms, and ends with a wholesome, "happy" ending.
The writer is unknown, but the art was by Ric Estrada.

Join us next week as we present another tale your grandparents didn't want your parents to see!
