Real Fact Comics, a publication by DC Comics during the 1946-1949 period, aimed to educate and entertain children by exploring true crime stories. The comic was a response to criticism from esteemed children’s book author, Sterling North, who denounced comics as “a poisonous mushroom growth,” “sex-horror serials,” and “graphic insanity.” North suggested replacing comics with more wholesome literature in children’s lives. In 1941, Parents’ Magazine Institute created True Comics as a means to address North’s concerns, which led to the growth of the genre. Despite its limited sales, Real Fact Comics was a noteworthy addition to DC’s lineup, featuring the creative talents of Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Harlan Ellison, and others.
