Uptight Ninny Brigade Alert! Comic Books are Evil (and on the Radio)

You may recall my recent post on David Hadju and his excellent new book, The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How it Changed America.

Be sure to check out this interview from earlier today that took place on my favorite new talk radio show, The Leonard Lopate Show.

Leonard is not in today, but he had an able back-up asking Hajdu questions about the hysteria behind comic books and how the Uptight Ninny Brigade (UNB) attempted to blame comic books with everything from illiteracy to juvenile delinquency to mass murder. And how they were wrong!

Just like today's UNB.

You can purchase The Ten-Cent Plague directly below:

Also, you can visit David Hajdu's website for more information on the author and his books.
