Description: From Book News, Inc.
Chronicles the fortunes of the American Comics Group (ACG), answering long-standing questions about the relationship between ACG and DC/National. Looks at issues of censorship and the Comics Code Authority, sparked by an ACG horror comic book, and details the work of various artists and writers, based on interviews with creative and editorial personnel. Includes appendices on personnel, and titles and circulation figures, plus a chronology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Product Description:
A comprehensive history of a small, but important, comic book publisher, this work reflects the reading tastes of tens of millions of Americans during the Golden and Silver ages of comics (1934-1970). The earlier Sangor "Shop" reinvented itself as the American Comics Group and by 1967 had published over one thousand issues. ACG was a microcosm of the larger industry, publishing magazines in every major comic book genre. Best known titles include "Herbie" and "Forbidden Worlds." It was ACG's "Adventures into the Unknown" that sparked a new genre--horror--which led to the Comics Code Authority, and industry-wide "self" censorship.
