Diagram for Delinquents Update #8: You've Been Seduced
The crew has an exciting few days coming up on June 27 to the 29th. We will be travelling to interview Mr. Stephen O'Day. He runs the invaluable and fascinating site: seductionoftheinnocent.org. Stephen will be chatting with us about his work and his thoughts on Fredric Wertham and Seduction of the Innocent. What he has unearthed and created so far is an incredible and utterly necessary archive of one of the most important periods of comics history.
To grasp the full depth of what Stephen has done, you must visit seductionoftheinnocent.org.
Stephen has been in the trenches doing the arduous research in tracking down the comic books that Wertham quotes and uses illustrations from but did not cite. As you can guess, as a researcher, this is a highly problematic issue with the book.
Also, currently, Producer Mike Phillips is hard at working trying to capture important interview subjects for the film. We are hoping to sit down with David Hajdu, author of The Ten-Cent Plague as well as Jim Trombetta, author of The Horror! The Horror!: Comic Books the Government Didn't Want You to Read!
Hopefully, after Stephen's interview this week, the blog will start intermixing some footage with these picture updates.
Finally, an animation team is currently creating the first sample of the animated court scenes. I hope to share some of that with you soon!
More in a week!
