Al Feldstein comic
This volume collects stories Feldstein wrote and drew about "The Machine-Gun Mad Mobsters" and "The Case of the Floating Corpse," as well such horror gems as "The Mummy’s Curse," "The Thing in the Swamp!" and our title story, "Terror Train." Plus: the most unlikely origin story of them all ― the tongue-in-cheek origin of EC Comics itself, in "Horror Beneath the Streets!" There are more than 30 stories in all, with essays and commentary by EC experts. Black & white illustrations.
A twist in every tale! This hardcover volume collects the complete run of Impact, including the famous ''Master Race'' story, and features art by legendary comics talents Jack Davis, Jack Kamen, Reed Crandall, George Evans, Bernie Krigstein, Joe Orlando, and Graham Ingels!
All of the creator of Mad magazine’s rarely seen EC science fiction comics stories in a single volume! These stories ― all drawn by Kurtzman, some of which he also wrote ― are from the pages of Weird Science, Weird Fantasy, Tales from the Crypt, and more. With Al Feldstein, Kurtzman created "Lost in the Microcosm," "The Man Who Raced Time," and "Atom Bomb Thief." There's also "The Radioactive Child," "The Last War on Earth," and the titular story, a cautionary tale about how the laws of physics would impact a real-world superhero, delivered in a uniquely bold, slashing cartoony-but-dead-serious style.
Fantagraphics' popular EC Library series continues with the science fiction work of Jack Kamen. On the surface, Kamen's style may seem wholesome but dark surprises and twists lurk just below the surface. Contains 22 classic EC yarns along with the usual all-new biographical, historical, and critical essays that have made Fantagraphics' EC Library series the ultimate version of these classics.
Wallace Wood fans love his sleek, preternaturally lush art, but they especially love the wonderment of his spectacular science fiction. This highly anticipated mouth-watering collection features over two dozen stories brimming with Wood's meticulously detailed, genre-defining brushwork-all save the one Wood wrote himself on the typewriter of EC editor Al Feldstein. And with titles like "Spawn of Mars," "The Dark Side of the Moon," "A Trip to a Star," "The Invaders," "The Secret of Saturn's Ring," and "The Two-Century Journey," how can you go wrong? This is EC science fiction at its finest. Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Spawn of Mars and Other Stories features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic comic book masterpieces.
This comics anthology includes Krigstein’s most famous story ― which broke both aesthetic and narrative boundaries ―plus material that’s never been reprinted since the 1950s. In addition to "Master Race,” this volume includes “The Flying Machine” (based on a story by Ray Bradbury). Other stories include: “Slave Ship,” an unpublished science fiction tale that was only discovered in the decades following EC’s demise, “The Monster From The Fourth Dimension,” a horror/science fiction shocker that has never been reprinted since its original appearance in 1954, and other Krigstein crime, horror, war, and science fiction stories covering the full gamut of EC titles, including Tales From the Crypt, Crime SuspenStories, Shock SuspenStories, Aces High, and Incredible Science Fiction.
Stories in this volume include "The Martian Monster," in which a 9-year-old boy befriends a Martian in the woods and asks him to kill his stepmother ― but the "Martian" convinces him that it’s really his father who he should target. There’s sharp social commentary in "…And Then There Were Two!" (highly intelligent robots unveil a plan for world peace, but political opportunists launch an anti-robot campaign to discredit them) and "Prediction of Disaster!" (an astronomer concludes that our sun is about to go nova and tries to warn the world).
EC horror comics are famous for their gleefully ghoulish stories and their outrageous twist endings — served up with a sly wink to the reader and a generous dose of dreadful puns. No artist captured that mood better and made his readers shudder more than “Ghastly” Graham Ingels. Ingels set the standard for fiendishly delightful depictions of dripping slime, dismembered limbs, and shambling corpses. This volume features Ingels’s earliest EC crime and horror work, from the pages of such titles as Tales From the Crypt, Haunt of Fear, Crime SuspenStories, and War Against Crime. Highlights in this volume include Ingels’s very first EC story, two Ingels adaptations of stories by Edgar Allan Poe (including a clever twist on “The Cask of Amontillado” that you won’t see coming), and EC’s first adaptation of a Ray Bradbury story. As with every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Doctor Of Horror And Other Stories superbly showcases these classic comic book masterpieces and enhances the reader’s experience with commentary and historical and biographical detail from EC experts.
EC artist Johnny Craig's graphic style is eerily crisp and contemporary. This collection of 25 Craig favorites includes such shockers as “Horror House!,” “Werewolf Concerto,” “Terror on the Moors,” and the title story, “Voodoo Vengeance” ― along with seven Craig crime classics, including Craig’s own personal favorite, “The Sewer!”
Even sixty years after their original release, in a post-Saw-and-Hostel era of explicit horror, EC Comics superstar Graham "Ghastly" Ingels's grisly pages retain the power to shock. His loving depictions of the endless corruption of flesh and nature made him the go-to guy for stories involving swamps, maniacs, and dismemberment - and all three combined to best effect in one of the standouts of this collection of his stories: "Horror We? How's Bayou?" - considered the single most spectacularly drawn of all of EC's horror stories, with a climax that would give body-horror king David Cronenberg nightmares.

With his obsessive attention to detail and his larger-than-life personality, Will Elder set the standard for precise rendering and abundant sight gags at EC Comics. (“Unquestionably the nuttiest guy that ever walked in the doors here.” — EC publisher William M. Gaines.) This collection includes all 15 of Elder’s Panic stories (EC’s in-house attempt to duplicate MAD), all seven of his science fiction tales (including two Ray Bradbury adaptations in collaboration with John Severin) and more. Elder lends his pen to dead-on satires of “The Night Before Christmas” — which got the first issue of Panic banned in the entire state of Massachusetts — and a variety of popular comic strips, including Li’l Abner and Dick Tracy. Showing his serious side, the team of Severin and Elder adapts two Ray Bradbury stories — “King of the Grey Spaces!” and the classic “The Million-Year Picnic” — along with five other solo Elder tales in the classic EC tradition from the pages of Weird Science and Weird Fantasy. This volume also includes a special Elder horror story that hasn’t been since its original publication more than 60 years ago. Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC Artists’ Library, Million Year Picnic also features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic stories.
