Comics History Part 2 • Comics Code Censorship

In part two of our history of comic book superheroes, we round out the golden age with a discussion of the Comics Code Authority, which sought to rescue America’s youth from the “10 cent plague!”

Jessica Plummer lives in New York and is a passionate Superman enthusiast. You can hear the extent of her Superman love on her podcast, Flights and Tights. She also writes about comics and the broader literary world at Connect with her on Twitter @jess_plummer.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
