Written by Gabriel Lynn, a staff writer for the Catechetical Guild, this 3-75" x 5.25" 1944 pamphlet was given away to parents as part of a growing anti-comics movement that felt comics were fuelling the rising tide of juvenile delinquency. Comics were also seen as a moral threat to growing children.

Gabriel Lynn also wrote a 1946 booklet, 'THE TEACHER AND THE COMICS' which you can also find on DCM. See the link above.

You can read all about this early pre-Wertham anti-comics era in Ken Quattro's excellent Comics Detective blog at the link above.
