Our next two books in The EC Comics Library series are queued up for the printer and they are both solo volumes:
Child of Tomorrow! and Other Stories collects science fiction stories written and drawn by Al Feldstein, who also scripted stories for numerous other EC artists. Feldstein's own crisp, thick-lined drawing style will definitely be of interest to Charles Burns and Dan Clowes fans. And of course it's packed with all the UFOs, BEMs, robots, rockets, and Cold War-fueled apocalyptic scenarios you could hope for. (And wait until you see the eye-popping day-glo orange on the cover in person!)
Johnny Craig was responsible for some of EC's most infamous images (severed head, anyone?) and was the only EC artist to habitually write his own stories. Fall Guy for Murder and Other Stories collects crime and horror work by Craig — 23 grim, gorgeous, graphic tales featuring murderous spouses, executioners, thieving surgeons, vengeful sword-swallowers, time bombs, private dicks, vampires, werewolves, and ghouls.
Both of these must-have volumes (aren't they all?) will be arriving in late July/early August — more sneak peeks are on the way, and you can pre-order them (separately, or together for a discount) right now.
