Set Description:

“Parade of Pleasure” (POP), written by Geoffrey Wagner, is an examination of the harmful effects that movies, comic books, pin-up magazines and, to a lesser degree, television have on American society. The book was originally published in Great Britain in 1954 and joined the growing comic book censorship movement of the 1950s with the most notable being Fredric Wertham’s “Seduction of the Innocent” (SOTI). POP is sometimes referred to as the British version of the SOTI. In his forward to the book, Wagner notes that he selected to study the influences of American popular iconography because “They are influences that exist in all countries and peoples, but which I have studied in America because they have found rather more expression there of late due to the generosity of the American economy and its exemplary love of freedom of the press.” Part two of POP deals with comics and is entitled “Comics: The Curse of Kids”. In this section, Wagner details the negative effects that comics have on children directly and American society in general. The comics that are contained in this registry set are all the comics that Overstreet currently lists as being referenced in POP.
