- Product Description: You may or may not believe it, but 80 odd years ago things got pretty wild in the comic book industry. So much so that the government had to step in to stem the moral panic and outrage by instituting what came to be formally known as the Comics Code Authority. Man, what a bummer that stamp of "approval" came to be, as it basically put EC Comics, the leader of the boundary-pushing pack, into a premature grave. Anyway, inspiration is as inspiration does, so here's one inspired from the "Golden Age" of horror comics before the nationwide bubble-wrapping of children began. And if you're looking for a back story to trip out on, please go down this radium rabbit hole for a look into the sordid past and a bit of insight as to where the original "radium jaw" stemmed from. It's quite the story indeed. —Cliver
