Closeout Price! Highly Recommended. By Al Feldstein and Ray Bradbury. Art by Jack Kamen. Jack Kamen wasn't the top artist in the EC stable, but he got some of the best stories and his work was aways competent and always creepy. Characters plot, scheme, and steal, but find their plans are thwarted by magic, monsters, and madness. Kamen was a master of delineating beautiful, scheming women, handsome jealous husbands, and not-so-innocent children. Stories from the classic EC horror titles The Vault of Horror, Tales From the Crypt, and The Haunt of Fear.

Jack Kamen wasn't the top artist in the EC stable, but he got some of the best stories and his work was aways competent and always creepy. Characters plot, scheme, and steal, but find their plans are thwarted by magic, monsters, and madness. Kamen was a master of delineating beautiful, scheming women, handsome jealous husbands, and not-so-innocent children. Stories from the classic EC horror titles The Vault of Horror, Tales From the Crypt, and The Haunt of Fear.

In the title tale, a cruel stepfather sends his stepdaughter to bed without her supper, but the old crone next door gives the hungry girl a candy figure made in the likeness of her father …

In “What the Dog Dragged In” — one of EC’s earliest adaptations of a Ray Bradbury story — a wheelchair-bound blind woman asks her faithful dog to go find her fiancé, unaware that he has been killed in an auto accident…

In “Loved to Death,” a rejected suitor spends one dollar to buy a potion that makes a woman fall in love with him, but when it works too well he discovers the price of the antidote is more than he can afford …

Plus over 20 more tales of madness and horror as only EC can do them! Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC Artists’ Library, Daddy Lost His Head and Other Stories also features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic masterpieces. There's a seven-page introduction by Tommy Burns. an Afterword by sci-fi master Ted White (who also wrote some of the early Marvel prose paperbacks), and a look at artist Jack Kamen himself, by Steve Ringgenberg. Plus a cool portrait of Jack Kamen, spoofing him and his Old Witch character, drawn by the great John Severin.
