The popularity of horror comics in the 1950s was curtailed by a suppression of popular horror stories by those concerned with juvenile delinquency and bad taste. Thirty years later, creators Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman produced popular and artful comics like Swamp Thing and The Sandman that took advantage of the new shape of American culture in the 1980s. Terrence Wandtke details the history and re-shaping of horror comics and its relevance to popular series such as Hellboy, The Goon, and The Walking Dead.
