Pulp Demons: International Dimensions of the Postwar Anti-comics Campaign

Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1999 - 306 sivua
Pulp Demons is the first systematic study of the fallout of the American controversy abroad. Eight distinguished scholars survey the historical roots, chief players, and sociocultural/political implications of anti-comics campaigns in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia, the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Using primary data gathered through interviews, content analyses, and searches of private papers and public documents, they fashion a fascinating account overall of one of the most prolonged, wide-ranging, and vicious attacks ever leveled at a mass medium, enveloping a mix of odd bedfellows that included the Communist Party, anticommunist groups, religious denominations, the cartoonists, and others.
