Max Allan Collins' Seduction of the Innocent

I'm a big fan of the crime novelist Max Allan Collins who has a new book coming out this February, Seduction of the Innocent. It's a murder mystery involving the death of a Frederic Wertham-like figure and involving a number of characters based on comics figures. It's a fun book.

We also talk about other projects, including the return of his long-running comics series Ms Tree and the collection of Micky Spillane's Mike Hammer comic strips he helped assemble. I also ask about the Nathan Heller novels, of which I'm a fan. In the most recent one, Collins takes on the assassination of JFK – you may not agree with his conclusions, but he's not lacking ambition.
