Seduction of the Innocent | [Max Allan Collins]

Seduction of the Innocent

Comics kill. Or so the esteemed Dr. Werner Frederick would have people believe - people like the Congressmen holding hearings on banning violent crime and horror "funny books". And when the crusade provokes a most un-funny murder, Jack Starr - comics syndicate troubleshooter - has no shortage of suspects. Was it the knife-wielding juvenile delinquent or the naked seductress? Perhaps a frustrated publisher or an outraged cartoonist. Or was it a comic book reader…?

No One Delivers Like Max Allan Collins.

Inspired by the real-life 1950s witch-hunt against Tales From the Crypt publisher EC Comics, Seduction of the Innocent pulls back the curtain for an insider’s view of the history of comics.

    "Always a good listen"

    This author/narrator combination never disappoints. Story lines are drawn from the headlines of the day. Dan John Miller is an outstanding narrator. His transition from one character or one accent to another is flawless. He brings each character into separate focus while blending them together to follow the story. It is always a pleasure to find another of these books. Always a good listen.

    "Fun enough"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm a long-time Collins fan, and this does the trick: good atmosphere and good historical research. The plot's unusually predictable, though.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The comic industry history.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator has a fine voice and he's a pleasure to listen to, but he does female (and gay) characters without a trace of subtlety. It got so clumsy at times that I nearly stopped listening.
