A few extreme examples of comics that Dr. Wertham didn't mention in SOTI, but perhaps should have.
Most of these came out before SOTI, although if you look carefully you'll find some that were published
after SOTI came out but before the Comics Code went into existence.
Feast your eyes on these extreme examples of sex, violence, and gore.
Without trying too hard, you can find rape,
pedophilia, bestiality and necrophilia. Feel free to suggest any we may have missed.
If you have any information to contribute,
It's common these days to find mass media such as movies and television presenting the message that love equals sex. You don't have to go back too far in time to find more extreme examples. If you look for them, you can find a number of 1950's romance comics that feature the "love equals rape" theme.
More to come! What do YOU think belongs on a list of the most outrageous pre-Code comics? We focused primarily on covers, but we're open to suggestions for any covers or interiors from any pre-Code comics.
