Comic books are target of pending ban: 2000-book a month trade here includes young, not-so-young

The Oregon State Pharmaceutical Association released a list of 45 banned comic books that druggists would not be permitted to sell. The author reported that consumption of comics in Gresham was at about 2000 a month, with an average of 800 being taken out from the public library. It was also noted that most of the books were bought by adults and young adults, and not the young children the law is meant to protect.
