William Gaines on his infamous Senate subcommittee testimony.

Probing conversations between Silver Age cartoonist Gil Kane and Harvey Kurtzman.

A talk with contemporary alternative cartoonist Sam Henderson and MAD great Al Jaffee.

Part of what made EC the best publisher in the history of mainstream comics was some of the most beautiful drawing ever published in comic books, and every interview is profusely illustrated by pertinent examples of the work under discussion. The EC artists were renowned for their attention to detail, and the reproduction here takes full advantage of the oversized art book format.
