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.

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. Steve Ringgenberg talks about Ingels’ EC work as well as how Russ Cochran convinced him to do recreations after he had forsaken any relationship with his comics work. And Ted White talks about the ups and downs of EC.
