The Amer­i­can Com­ic Book Chron­i­cles con­tin­ues its ambi­tious series of full-col­or hard­cov­ers where TwoM­or­rows’ top authors doc­u­ment every decade of com­ic book his­to­ry from the 1940s to today! Bill Schelly authors the vol­ume on the 1950s era of Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe and Elvis Pres­ley, with a year-by-year account of the most sig­nif­i­cant pub­li­ca­tions, notable cre­ators, and impact­ful trends, includ­ing: the rise of the great EC “New Trend” titles (Tales of the Crypt, Weird Sci­ence), Har­vey Kurtzman’s Mad, and Carl Barks’ clas­sic work on Don­ald Duck and Uncle Scrooge! Plus, read about the pub­li­ca­tion of Dr. Fredric Wertham’s noto­ri­ous anti-comics book, Seduc­tion of the Inno­cent, and the Sen­ate hear­ings on juve­nile delin­quen­cy that led to the cre­ation of the Comics Code, chang­ing the face of comics for decades to come!
