to a large venue in Los Angeles!

Support Us Here

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater plans to bring TALES FROM THE COMIC BOOK CRACK DOWN to the big stage in a big, Broadway-style way, with original music, effects, projected art and performances of infamous vinatge comic books!   In our unique, multi-media performance style, we will bring to life the famous Senate hearings of April 21, 1954, which attacked the comic book industry and resulted in its repression for years after. We will shed light on this important, yet untold event of censorship over 60 years later by spotlighting notorious comic publisher William Gaines, his EC comics and his sparring with the Senators. TALES FROM THE COMIC BOOK CRACK DOWN showcases live performances of vintage, mid-century comic book stories that the US Senate attacked in 1954 for being a bad influence on children along with excerpts from the actual transcripts of the hearings. All is presented in our signature variety show/ old radio show style. The show includes comedic acts, multimedia projections and live music.

This is where we need your help.  To commemorate this historical event and shed light on what William Gaines went through during these times we plan to perform this in a larger theater with all the theater bells and whistles.  Please help us raise funds to bring this ambition production to life!

Thank you,

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater
