Weird Comics History Podcast Ep. 4 - Life Under the Code (Comics Code Authority Part 4)

It's time to cruise through comics history again with Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) and observe the beginnings of the Comics Code Authority, including a reading of the actual Code itself! Then they discuss changes to comic books--and the Code--over its sixty-plus year history. It's a wacky good time of phony legalese and self-censorship that's sure to entertain the whole family! WARNING: Not for children or family.

  1. Just got around to listen to this episode and I gotta say this was easily my favorite episode. I usually love when podcasts go off on tangents more and just talk and have fun, but oddly the more this podcast is on point the more I like it. Hearing the stuff they had to change and hearing what the original rules were was all fascinating.
