To round out my Halloween editorial series we will take a look at comic books. Horror comics had a peak in the 1940s and 1950s but then suffered a decline after Dr. Fredric Wertham published his infamous book Seduction of the Innocent, a book that is attributed to leading the selfcensorship of comics by the Comics Code Authority. Horror comics eventually saw resurgence in the 1970s due in part to the Comics Code Authority relaxing their rules which allowed many new horror themed comics and characters to emerge.
