    The last volume in this trilogy on the comic book industry is se

    The last volume in this trilogy on the comic book industry is set in the 1950’s, when the furor over the rising amount of crime, violence and sex rose to a roaring peak, highlighted by a Senate committee’s hearing and ending with the establishment of a “Decency Code.” It brings back the dynamic duo, Jack and Maggie Starr, owners of a distribution company of comic strips to newspapers. The story is a loosely disguised history of the leaders and events surrounding the industry at the time, and is based, to a great extent, on the crusade led by Dr. Frederic Wertham, portrayed by Dr. Werner Frederick in the novel.

    The author, a long-time scripter of the Dick Tracy newspaper comic strip, certainly knows his subject and the players, and gives an excellent rendition of the real-life story, while writing a murder mystery as only he can, or his mentor, Mickey Spillane did. Adding spice are illustrations heading each chapter, created by Terry Beatty (Batman, The Phantom).

    Max Alan Collins, among his many specialties, latches on to an historical event or subject, and then creates a fictionalized story that grasps the reader’s attention throughout. “Seduction” is no exception, and is recommended.

    Another Great Max Collins Read

    Max Allan Collins does not disappoint in any of his books, and "Seduction of the Innocent" continues in that tradition. A good book about the history of comic book publishing wars, with a good plot twist included. Another great Hardcase Crime story!
