No comics publisher has had a greater impact — or generated more controversy — than the immensely influential EC Comics. The second and concluding volume of conversations with the creators behind the EC war/horror/science fiction/suspense line brings The Comics Journal’s definitive interviews together with several never-before-published sessions, including a new interview with the legendary Jack Davis conducted by Gary Groth. It also includes:

• Publisher Bill Gaines on the origins of the company and his terrifying grilling before the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency.

• Editor/writer/artist Al Feldstein on introducing serious science fiction to comics and his interactions with Ray Bradbury.

• Harvey Kurtzman on bringing realism to war comics with Frontline Combat and subversive satire to humor comics with Mad.

• The master of chirascuro, Alex Toth, on the aesthetic values that guided him through a career that included drawing for EC and animating Jonny Quest.

• Colorist Marie Severin on the atmosphere of pranks and anarchy that dominated the EC bullpen.

Plus, career-spanning interviews with George Evans and Jack Kamen, rare Q&A sessions with formal experimenter Bernard Krigstein and EC writer Colin Dawkins, and a conversation between Jack Davis and award-winning alternative cartoonist Jim Woodring.
