Abstract

State Senator Merrifield's bill, possibly subjecting comic books to censorship, goes up for a vote. The author of this article laments the fact that censorship will be allowed to get a foothold. The author thinks that the task to classify certain comics as unfit for minors will prove to be both timely and inconsistent from county to county.
