EC ARCHIVES CRIME SUSPENSTORIES Volume 3

Availability: In stock

Regular Price: $49.99

Sale Price $39.99

Collects #13-18, 1952-53. Highly Recommended. By Al Williamson, Graham Ingels, George Evans, Joe Orlando, Johnny Craig, et al. Crime leaned a bit more in the direction of criminal activity, but really the creators and even the stories were the same wild stuff you got in the three EC horror titles. In fact, the Old Witch (with stories drawn by Ingles) makes regular appearances. But here we do get a variety of artists, including a wonderful collaboration of Williamson and Frank Frazetta, several more stories by Williamson, and a rare appearance of Sid Check. Retribution, shock endings, violent ends for bad boys and bad girls...Crime is the place to satisfy your craving for justice!

Collecting issues #13-18 of Crime SuspenStories from the twisted artistic talents of Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig, Jack Kamen, Sid Check, Fred Peters, Graham Ingels, George Evans, Williamson, Joe Orlando, and others. Featuring a foreword by David del Valle.

Dark Horse reprints the infamous comic series, including all the original ads, text pieces, and letters! And to repeat myself, I do like the new coloring of these stories. It gives them a fresh feel and certainly makes them clean and tight compared with as-is reprints of old comics, with misregistration and bad coloring.

I'd forgotten how nice the Al Williamson pieces are here, with those flashes of Frazetta and others lending a hand. The girls are stunning, the guys manly and buff, but there's always a bad outcome ready for one or more of the players...
