The stories Al Feldstein wrote and drew for EC Comics's science fiction titles captured precisely the popular science fiction zeitgeist of mid-20th century America.

Feldstein applied a flat-out pulp sensibility to his treatment of such themes as atomic war ("Child of Tomorrow"), defense against nuclear weapons ("The Last City"), the arms race ("Destruction of the Earth!"), the cruel perils of space travel ("Space-Warp!"), and (of course!), horrifying alien monsters ("Spawn of Venus," "Seeds of Jupiter," "It Was the Monster from the Fourth Dimension").

EC Comics LogoBut he also explored notions of personal identity ("Am I Man or Machine?"), and had a little fun with time travel ("Made of the Future," "The Origin of the Species") and mass hysteria ("Panic!") along the way.

Feldstein's full-throttle scripts and powerfully composed, meticulously inked artwork come at you with a raw, blunt force — a quirky directness which is a vital part of the allure of these classic tales, presented together here for the first time.

Also, in a candid new interview done especially for this book, Feldstein speaks out about his science fiction days.

As a bonus, you'll find even more Feldstein stories drawn by a few of his oft-overlooked collaborators.

So strap into your spacesuit, power up your time machine, and take a look inside...
