内容紹介

In mid-1954 the Queensland Government set up a Board of Review, working
under the Objectionable Literature Act of 1954 act. The board, consisting of
four men and one woman, initially met once every fortnight with the view of
examining all publications on sale in Queensland, barring newspapers, and
ultimately to prohibit the circulation in Queensland of any material that they
found to be objectionable. The manner in which the Board acted was almost
the opposite of the better known Commonwealth Censorship Board. The
Commonwealth Censorship Board was more concerned with books of literary
merit, banning titles such as Huxley’s Brave New World and The Dubliners by
James Joyce than comic books and pulp magazines, although it often would,
and did, ban titles from coming into the country, starting with Detective Comics
in the late 1930s and continuing into the 1960s when several hundred titles
were on the prohibited import list, including almost everything by Mickey
Spillane along with virtually every horror and crime comic and magazine and
comics as diverse as Doll Man, Marvel Tales, Battle Action, All American Men
Of War, Zip Jet, Fightin’ Marines, Captain Marvel Adventures and, incredibly
enough, single issues of Classics Illustrated relating to Frankenstein and
Crime And Punishment. Despite this censorship the Queensland Literature
Board would go even further.

On the 25th of August 1954 the Board banned another series of titles; the Lone Avenger was amongst them. The other titles were Dizzy Dames (Atlas Publications Pty. Ltd.), Headline Stories (Atlas Publications Pty. Ltd.), The Mask (Atlas Publications Pty. Ltd.), Wanted (Atlas Publications Pty. Ltd.), First Romance
(Barmor Publications Pty. Ltd), Love Problems (Barmor Publications Pty. Ltd),
Teenage Love (Barmor Publications Pty. Ltd), Atomic Attack (Calvert
Publishing C. Pty. Ltd.), Dragnet (Invincible Press) and Soldier Comics (Larry
Cleland Pty. Ltd.).
Despite the first appeal being lodged it was business as usual for the Board.
On the 20th of December 1954 another round of comics were banned from
publication and distribution in Queensland. Instead of the usual war and crime
comics (horror was all but dead and buried by this stage) the focus was on
romance comics and their use of sex. The titles were as follows: Darling
Romance (Action Comics Pty. Ltd.), Love Secrets, Teenage Confessions and
Teen-Age Romances (all published by Barmor Publications Pty. Ltd), New
Romances and Popular Romance (both published by H. John Edwards
Publishing Co. Pty Ltd) and Love Experiences, Real Love, Real Romances,
Real Story and Romance Story (all published by Transport Publishing Co. Pty.
Ltd.). The notice duly appeared in the Queensland Government Gazette on the
25th of December. As with the publisher of Dragnet, the Board would find
itself facing an appeal. Three publishers banded together, Action Comics,
Barmor Publications and Transport Publishing, to bring the appeal to the
Supreme Court. Unlike the Dragnet case the appeal would consist of more
than merely affidavits as for the first time in Australia, and perhaps in the world,
a superior court listened to days of argument and a series of witnesses in
order to decide whether a comic book had the power and influence to deprave
the reader.
This book provides the full details of what happened in court, when the publishers fought the censors, and won.

著者について

Daniel Best was born in South Australia and is a life-long lover of history and popular culture. He has worked extensively in both electronic and print media, and currently works for the Government of South Australia. In his spare time he writes profusely and his work has been lauded worldwide as being insightful and, at times, ground-breaking. With a keen eye for his topics and a dogged approach to research, Daniel's books have won high praise from their readers with the result being that, in 2010, Best formed his own publishing arm, Blaq Books. At the moment his Trials of Superman Volumes 1 & 2 have been downloaded over 60,000 times in four months, and his books include the authorised biographies of the Eisner Hall Of Fame winners Ross Andru & Mike Esposito and Jim Mooney. Recently Best has begun to delve his research talents to the world of law, copyright and the impacts that cases have upon society as a whole. This has resulted in a whole new field of books, which will be available as electronic versions only, thus cementing his desire to remain at the forefront of publishing. He is verbose, articulate and his work is referenced both in other people's books and the media and also in major court cases in the USA. His current works include the complete history of the legendary Newton Comics and the 1955 Queensland Comic Book trials.
