To Deprave and Corrupt: Forbidden, Hidden and Censored Books

A Design for Depravity: Horror Comics and the Challenge of Censorship in Australia, 1950 – 1986

In the early 1950s, the popularity of horror comic books prompted community boycotts and official sanctions against their sale and publication, both within the US, and abroad. In this special keynote lecture, Kevin Patrick curator of the Heroes and Villains: Australian Comics and their Creators exhibition, traces the history of horror comics in Australia.
