Owner's Description

In 1949 the State of New York formed a legislative committee to study the publication of comics. The committee issued a series of reports beginning in 1950 and carrying through 1957. The 1951 report and the 1954 report contained illustrative sections depicting comics that the committee found objectionable.

The cover of Startling Terror #9 is contained in Appendix A of the 1954 report. Page 16 of the report describes Appendix A as containing examples of covers “depicting sex, terror, crime and brutality”.
