Mood, mayhem, murder—and zombies, too!

Johnny Craig emerged from the earliest days of EC Comics with a crisp, elegant, contemporary graphic style that set a mood and took a surprisingly sophisticated approach to the mischief, mayhem, and murder of so many of the stories he drew.

This collection of Craig's pioneering work for the company collects all of the stories he illustrated for War Against Crime and Crime Patrol plus his earliest outings for EC's terror triumvirate—Crypt of Terror, Haunt of Fear, and Vault of Horror. Also included are all of the legendary stories that Craig and EC great Al Feldstein collaborated on under the pseudonym "F.C. Aljon."

Of special interest to collectors, we present two stories for the first time since their initial publication more than 70 years ago: "Moon Girl," EC's first (and only) superhero and one of EC's earliest horror stories, "Zombie Terror," both scanned from the original art. Plus "Edna Sunday," the story of a vicious woman murderer, restored for the first time ever with its original, never-before-printed shocking splash panel.

Twenty-six stories in all, with essays and commentary by EC experts.
