Comics and your Children. Moral Panic!

Campaign against comics

What are your children reading? Moral panic! We came across this pamphlet from the Comics Campaign Council in 1954. This must have been one of their first publications as they were set up the year before in 1953 concerned about the bad influence of imported American comics.

Their work helped lead to the government legislating with the Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Act 1955.
