Synopsis

MEET LEV GLEASON, A REAL-LIFE COMICS

SUPERHERO!



Gleason was a titan among Golden

Age comics publishers who fought back against the censorship campaigns and

paranoia of the Red Scare. After dropping out of Harvard to fight in France,

Gleason moved to New York City and eventually made it big with groundbreaking

titles like Daredevil and Crime Does Not

Pay.



Brett Dakin, Gleason's great-nephew,

opens up the family archives-and the files of the FBI-to take you on a journey

through the publisher's life and career. In American Daredevil, you'll learn the

truth about Gleason's rapid rise to the top of comics, unapologetic Progressive

activism, and sudden fall from grace.



Whether

it was Dr. Frederic Wertham and Seduction of the Innocent or the House

Un-American Activities Committee, Gleason was always ready to take on the enemy.
