Remember: Look for the seal


Here’s a little something for all the scholars in the audience: The blog My Confined Space has found vintage brochure and promotional material about the Comics Code Authority designed to explain to parents and educators what the Code was about and how the self-regulating society was keeping innocent young tots from the pernicious influence of all those ugly crime and horror books.

I kind of get a kick out of the CCA seal. Nostalgia I suppose. Still, if I were publishing a comic that qualified for CCA approval, especially if it were any kind of nostalgia/retro book, I would definitely want to use the seal.

And not the little tiny version I grew up with, either, no. The big ol’ honkin’ inch-high postage stamp version! Now THAT’S a comic book cover, yeah. :-)
