Indexer Notes

Story continues in Batman (DC, 1940 series) 453.

One of the books on which the library guard is standing is 'Seduction of the Innocent' by Dr. Fredric Wertham, a 1950s study of the influence of comic books on the youth of the time, blaming them for causing juvenile delinquency. It created alarm in parents and led directly to the formation of the Comics Code Authority.
