Here EC is just getting into its stride. There's very early work by Wally Wood, still figuring out his signature style. There's funky Al Feldstein, Jack Kamen, early Johnny Craig, Joe Orlando, Graham Ingels, and Jack Davis! Forward by Joe Dante, Introduction by Grant Geissman. Classic stories include "Drawn and Quartered," "The Works...in Wax," "Reflection of Death," "Voodoo Death," "Bats in My Belfry!" and much more.

24 great stories, nicely remastered in a bright, air-brush style that we find quite appealing and much clearer than the sometimes inferior printing in the original comics.The coloring is very well done, and this helps make this feel fresh and new, even if you may have seen these iconic stories in previous collections.

Also includes artwork by Howard Larsen and George Roussos. Larson is familar to fans of the lurid Avon titles and the even more lurid Fox comics of the late 1940s and early 1950s. Roussos was an excellent artist who'd already worked at DC on major characters for several years. But both of these men would soon leave the EC fold as the regulars we all know so well became the steady, consistent contributors.
