Happy International Children Books Day!

Today is International Children Books Day.

Back when I was a child comic books like TALES FROM THE CRYPT was banned   Dr. Fred Wertham said they were a bad influence on children.  Then all the most adults jumped on the bandwagon, without actually looking at the comics in a unbiased way and got rid of them.    Finally, after there were rules and laws put to limit the creative imagination of the comic book community Dr Werttham's beliefs have been proved wrong and actually some of those comic works that he crtiticzed have been proven to be great works of literature.   

Adults have a terrible influence on children.
