"Ghastly" at his gleefully ghoulish best!

EC horror comics are renowned for their gleefully ghoulish stories and their outrageous twist endings — served up with a sly wink to the reader and a generous dose of dreadful puns.

No artist did it better — or made his readers shudder more — than "Ghastly" Graham Ingels, who set the standard for fiendishly delightful depictions of dripping slime, dismembered limbs, and shambling corpses. This volume features Ingels at the pinnacle of his EC career, from the pages of such titles as Tales From the Crypt, Vault of Horror, Haunt of Fear, Crime SuspenStories, and Impact.

Highlights include "Accidents and Old Lace" — three sweet little old ladies weave tapestries depicting the gruesome deaths of real people, but when an art dealer commits murder to get a tapestry of his own, he discovers just how art imitates … death. Also: "Marriage Vow," "The Sliceman Cometh," and many more, including a rare EC horror gem that hasn’t been seen since its original publication more than 65 years ago.

As with every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Accidents and Old Lace and Other Stories superbly showcases these classic comic book masterpieces and enhances the reader's experience with commentary and historical and biographical detail from EC experts.
