Before Halloween and Freddy Krueger and Night of the Living Dead, there were EC horror Comics. And before John Carpenter and Wes Craven and George Romero, there was Graham Ingels.

"Ghastly" Ingels's fine-line depictions of the corruption of flesh and nature made him the premier artist for stories involving gruesome dismemberments, maniacal homicides, and oozing terrors. And if it took place in a fetid, gurgling swamp, so much the better!

In fact, EC fans voted "Horror We? How's Bayou?" as the company's "best horror artwork."

More than just disturbing images, though, there is a fascinating poetry to Ingels's drawing, perhaps best exemplified by "There Was an Old Woman," one of two Ray Bradbury adaptations you'll find in this collection.

And if you think romance can't blossom in a horror story, just take a look at "A Little Stranger," a sweet story of marital bliss — between a dead vampire and a dead werewolf!

Even today's masters of movie splatterfests and undead horrors could take a shock lesson or two from the undisputed master of horror comics. Brace yourself, look inside, and you'll see why.
