WANTED "Mania for Murder"

Who says comics cause juvenile delinquency?
Well, the NY State Joint Legislative Committee to Study Comics did!
And this tawdry tale was one of their prime examples!

Like the classic "Murder, Morphine and Me", this sordid story from Orbit/Wanted's Wanted Comics #27 (1950) was reprinted in the report issued by the New York State Legislative Commission on Censorship in Comics as an example of the "trash" that was "corrupting innocent American youth"!
But, only select panels were presented, not the entire tale!
And, this story has never been reprinted in any of the numerous hardcover or paperback compilations of horror comics since then!

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

Support Small Business!
