Don’t call it a comeback!
After a hiatus that began at the end of of 2014, we are proud to announce the return of the All-New, All-Different (ok, not that new or different) Orbiting Pod!

Sixty years ago, comics were placed on trial in the United States in a nationally televised Senate subcommittee hearing that had shattering repercussions! Charles presents the shocking history of moral panic that led to this historic hearing and the subsequent birth of the Comics Code Authority, a censorship body that regulated the medium’s content in the United States, with global implications. Learn the truth behind Fredric Wertham and Seduction of the Innocent; encounter the moment that turned EC Comics Publisher William Gaines into the iconic force behind Mad Magazine; and discover the long-term impact of the Code on comics in the USA and beyond in this lively presentation!
