EC Comics LogoThe EC Comics Library

From 1950 until 1955 (when they fell victim to the newly-created Comics Code), EC Comics revolutionized American comics with their provocative, literate, and visually stunning horror, crime, war, SF, and humor anthologies (including Tales from the Crypt and MAD). Frequently reprinted in archival, fan-oriented packages, this work has never been collected in accessible, general-readership-friendly form. Fantagraphics’ EC project, with its artist- and theme-based collections, is finally rectifying this.

"All of these books are essential purchases for comics fans… These are the books that best show off how EC took genre stories seriously, striving to create comics that didn't treat readers as naive or ignorant." – Los Angeles Times

"Fantagraphics' current series of handsome hardcovers makes familiar material fresh by focusing on individual artists... it's never been easier to appreciate the contributions of these iconic inkslingers." – Chicago Tribune

"...I am not only appreciative...but also very impressed. [The books] are spectacular packages of their featured artist and their stories." – Al Feldstein

"It's fitting that Fantagraphics - long-time champion of the rights and importance of comics creators, and re-issuer important historical comics -- would arrange a publishing line this way. Even though it may not be surprising, it's still a commendable decision. It's also an important development in further establishing comics as art and literature worthy of serious consideration and study.… It presents work by EC’s most important artists, drawing the work from across all EC titles." – Full-Stop

"These collections show comics in a pure, unadulterated form. Before the Superhero frenzy, before '60s cynicism, and just before the Comics Code Authority started trimming all the gory and sexy fun from the pages with their seal of approval." – Under the Radar
