CLASSIC COMICS No. 13: Dr. JEKYLL and Mr. HYDE [HRN 20] Author: Place: Publisher: Date: Description: Gilberton. June, 1944. CGC certified: VG (4.0). Off-white to white pages. HRN 20. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Used in Seduction of the Innocent. Besides all the violence, Dr. Wertham objected to comic books on the grounds that they were "pedagogically unsound," claiming "there are children who have been corrupted by comic books so that they do not want to read anything else." He had special disdain for "comic books of 'classics' and 'famous authors,'" calling them "mutilations" that reduced every great book they adapted to a pastiche of sensationalistic scenes: "A fourteen-year-old boy in the eighth year at school, with a second-grade reading level, said that he has read the 'classics' version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: 'It is called The Mad Doctor. He makes medicine. He drinks it and turns into a beast. He kills a little girl. The cops chase him. Then he changes into a man. He comes to a famous home and falls in love with a girl. He keeps changing. Finally he gets shot. While dying he changes back into a human being. I like when he comes to the little girl and hits her with a cane.'" —Dr. Wertham, Seduction of the Innocent. A limited edition of 100 softcover and 15 hardcover catalogues are available. Over 200 pages, fully illustrated. Fun reference, great keepsake. Softcovers $40, dust-jacketed hardcover with limitation plate $200. To order, contact ivan@pbagalleries.com or visit: https://www.pbagalleries.com/content/comics/. R. Crumb says, "I found [PBA's catalogue] so interesting that I am saving it for the texts that accompany the comics which were put up for auction. This is some of the best commentary I’ve yet seen on the quality of the content of comic books. I especially enjoyed the reviews of the post-war horror comics. Great. Priceless." Consignments welcome for PBA's Spring 2021 Comic Book sale. Pre-Code Horror, Golden Age and Silver Age comics, original art and ephemera sought. Send inquiries to ivan@pbagalleries.com.
