I could go on and on, but you might get the point by now. This is absolutely the best EC had to offer, from out-and-out horror that made Wertham cringe, to superlative, thoughtful science fiction, to anti-war stories that Kurtzman pioneered here. It's an amazing collection. New coloring that we find different, but I tend to like it--combined with crisp reproduction from the original artwork and stats, this makes for EC work better printed than just about anywhere--particularly in the original comics, which often were muddy and out of register, to be honest. This cleans all that up and present a whole new look to the work.

I won't quote them, but there are testimonials on the back cover for EC, by none other than Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, John Carpenter, John Landis, R.L. Stine and Brian Michael Bendis.
