George Evans’ comics art get the classic treatment in this collection of aerial warfare-themed EC stories.
George Evans was a master of the aviation war story. This collection includes all of his highly-acclaimed stories for Aces High, EC’s famous air war title. As a bonus, we present a rarity: Evans’ never-before-reprinted 3-D story of World War I ace Frank Luke (in regular, easy-on-the-eyes 2-D). This volume also includes numerous Evans crime and shock stories, including “As Ye Sow…,” “…My Brother’s Keeper,” and “Cadillac Fever.” Other war stories, many done in collaboration with Harvey Kurtzman, include “Napoleon!” and “Flaming Coffins” (which Evans wrote, about the inherent perils of WW I aircraft). Like all books in the Fantagraphics EC line, Aces High features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic comic book masterpieces.Aces High is part of the The EC Artists' Library series.
“About half of the strips reprinted in this volume of Fantagraphics’ wonderful EC artists’ collections involve war and flying men. … Reading those stories was a joy… [The] crime stories are wonderful pieces, full of life and energy and verve.” — Jason Sacks - Comics Bulletin
