    Censorship of Comic Books: A Statement in Opposition on Civil Liberties Grounds (ACLU, 1955) Condition: VG+. During the turbulent 1950s, when Dr. Fredric Wertham, author of Seduction of the Innocent, was leading the crusade against crime and horror comics, only the American Civil Liberties Union dared to speak out against comics censorship. This slim pamphlet states the ACLU's position, claiming that opinions on comics and their effect on juvenile delinquency varied greatly among experts, and decreeing that censorship violated the First Amendment. The 16-page, digest-sized pamphlet is in nice condition, with some faint writing at the top of the front page, and the book has been creased down the center.
