Banned & Challenged Comics

banned challenged comicsThis year’s focus for Banned Book week is on Comics and Graphic Novels. Comics and graphic novels aren’t a new area of literature, but have enjoyed a revival in the last few years with the success of the Marvel movies showing a new generation classic comic book characters.

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has put together a list of recently banned and challenge comic books, but this is not a new trend. Comics have always faced extra scrutiny, even leading to book burnings in the 40s, cities banning certain types of comics in the 50s, and the comics industry going on trial in 1954.
