Regular Price: $49.99

Sale Price $39.99

Collects #7-12, 1951-52. Highly Recommended. By Al Feldstein and Johnny Craig. Art by Jack Davis, Johnny Craig, Jack Kamen et al. Classic chronicles of criminals and capers! Collecting issues from the immortal artistic talents of Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig, Jack Kamen, Jack Davis, and George Roussos. Plus every issue has a horror tale from The Haunt of Fear, narrated by the Old Witch and drawn by Graham Ingles, just like in EC's three horror titles. In fact, these stories were as horror-laden and shocking any of EC work--they just wanted to cash in on the "crime" so popular in comics. Handsomely recolored, giving these a fresh and up to date look and polish.

Classic chronicles of criminals and capers! Collecting issues from the immortal artistic talents of Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig, Jack Kamen, Jack Davis, and George Roussos. Plus every issue has a horror tale from The Haunt of Fear, narrated by the Old Witch and drawn by Graham Ingles, just like in EC's three horror titles.

Handsomely recolored, giving these a fresh and up to date look and polish.

Crystal-clear reproduction, even down to the house-ads for other issues and the text stories and letters pages. I find Johnny Craig's work stands out here, he's one of the most under-rated EC staffers but his design and storytelling is superb here. Ingles is at his most ghastly, naturally, and even Kamen looks good, with his evil gals and murderous boyfriends and husbands galore.

Featuring a foreword by Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT, Suicide Squad: Walled In)!

“Reading these comics now is a lot like watching the Twilight Zone -- an uncomplicated, pure look at the roots of an enduring genre.” -Paste Magazine
