Marvel Comic Group editor's letter; listing all Marvel titles, and defending against the charge that comics cause juvenile delinquency as argued by Dr Wertham in the pages of the Saturday Review of Literature. Included is a letter from David Pace Wigransky, a 14-year old reader, claiming that almost 70% of American boys and girls were reading comic books, so, as almost all kids read comics, delinquent kids read comics too!
