Remember the Comics Code Authority?
It was that little, outdated white stamp at the top corner of your comic books circa 1954 until just a couple of years ago. It made sure your favourite characters didn’t do anything too real – like curse, or have sex, or deal with the myriad of issues most people face on a daily basis.
It held the industry back for decades, all predicated on one man’s judgement – Fredric Wertham and his book, Seduction of the Innocent.
And it was all based on lies.
