Reading Room MENACE "Witch in the Woods"

It's Banned Books Week, and though many don't consider them to be "books"
...since the 1950s, people have tried to ban comics!
As Stan Lee's somewhat snarky script for this story from Atlas' Menace #7 (1953) points out, those beloved fairy tales were as mind-rotting as the comics Wertham and the others hypocritically tried to ban!
Joe Sinnott's clean and elegant renderings keep the story from being too grotesque, helping to sell Lee's point without the extreme gore some other publishers of the period (and even Atlas itself) occasionally went for!
We presented another one of Lee's responses to the Seduction of the Innocent witch-hunt HERE.
