- Full Description
In addition to Master Race, this volume includes The Flying Machine (based on a story by Ray Bradbury). Other stories include: Slave Ship, an unpublished science fiction tale that was only discovered in the decades following EC's demise, The Monster From The Fourth Dimension, a horror/science fiction shocker that has never been reprinted since its original appearance in 1954, and other Krigstein crime, horror, war, and science fiction stories covering the full gamut of EC titles, including Tales From the Crypt, Crime SuspenStories, Shock SuspenStories, Aces High, and Incredible Science Fiction.
Krigstein was the most experimental of all the EC artists, so much so that Bill Gaines and Harvey Kurtzman both got into disputes with him. But as shown by these stories, talent and invention triumphed, as his extremely cinemagraphic style elevated comic book storytelling to a new high. Right away, just looking at the four panels on the top of the front cover, you can see how Krigstein's work influenced Jim Steranko, who would carry the same ideas to yet another level in the 1960s.
