‘Ten-Cent Plague’ author David Hajdu on ‘The Colbert Report’
David Hajdu, author of the excellent comic book history The Ten-Cent Plague, went under the gun on The Colbert Report on Wednesday to talk about the book. The full segment, which is just as inane as expected, can be seen below.
The book is pretty much required reading for comic book fans at this point, as it richly describes the frenzied war against comic books launched in post-World War II America. For more on The Ten-Cent Plague at ComicMix, read my review right here and a great debate about the issue in the comments of this post.
