Description


Every generation the media is blamed for the unruly behaviour of the young. In the 80's it was Heavy Metal, during the 90's it was rap and computer games. Well, there was once a time when comic books were seen as the greatest danger to the youth of the world, and the American Government decided it needed to do something about it. The Senate Hearings into juvenile delinquency would not only change the comic industry forever, it inspired an age a true horror across the globe, allowing government sanctioned witch hunts ruled by men like Joseph McCarthy to destroy the lives of everyday people looking for hidden perils in a seemingly dangerous world...and this all began with the war against comic books.

The modern political environment is not the first time America's paranoia infected the world. There was a time when comic books were branded public menace #1, and many governments moved to destroy the industry. With a cast that includes Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Joseph McCarthy, America's first serial killer, Albert Fish, Stan 'The Man' Lee and many others, 'HORROR - the First Time America's Paranoia Infected the World' is a tale based on the true stories of those affected by these strange times.
