San Diego, United States
About the Program:
1 hour MCLE General Participatory credit available
With moral panic on the rise, the history of how comics have been censored is more important than ever. Join us for this shocking tale, starting from the public book burnings and Senate hearings that led to the Comics Code Authority in the early 1950s, through the attacks on retailers in the 1970s and 80s, on artists in the 1990s, and on readers today. Learn about the latest developments affecting the freedom to read comics, including the details of recent prosecutions against comics readers in the United States and abroad.
The first 40 people to arrive to the event will receive a free gift.
All attendees will be entered into a drawing for other prizes, including a copy of Comic-Con: 40 Years of Artists, Writers, Fans & Friends.
