FROM THIS EPISODE

ten-cent_plague.jpgIn the 1930's and 40's, comic books were as popular as movies -- and more influential. So much so that serious steps were taken to stop them. Columbia University journalism professor David Hajdu (Lush Life, A Biography of Billy Strayhorn, Positively 4th Street: The Lives and Times of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Baez Farina and Richard Farina) examines this controversy in his new book, The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How it Changed America, and illustrates it.
