When Comics Were “Bad”?

Way back before the Comics Code, comics were bad.

Or at least, according to this article on Wired News, that’s what a bunch of people thought. Frankly, when I read this, it reminded me of the whole controversy over explicit song lyrics. But, the funny thing is, nobody seemed to raise the same ruckus over the censoring of comic books. And, today, comics have gotten edgy again. They tell socially relevant messages. They take chances.
Anyway, it’s interesting to see where they’ve come since then. And, it’s an interesting Friday read.
