Like many out there, I wasn't initially interested in purchasing EC stories printed without color. I realized that there were those who preferred the EC stories without the gaudy comic-booky coloring (including an entire generation who grew up on Russ Cochran's b&w "EC Library"), ultimately the cartoonists who worked on these stories drew them for color. However, with the news that the incomplete "EC Archives" series has been put on indefinite hold (after only 2 books by new publisher Russ Cochran, ironically), Fantagraphics new series might be all there is for a while. Another drawback might be the fact that these stories have been reprinted many times before, in many formats. Cochran alone has put out b&w hardback editions, facsimile comic books, oversized tabloid editions, etc... Putting this material out again doesn't make much commercial sense if you're not going to do anything different with it.
This is where Fantagraphics rose to the occasion.Read more ›
drew collected in one book as well as the pages of the covers he did for both
Frontline Combat and Two Fisted Tales. The text pieces are a nice additional as well
and make for informative and enjoyable reading. If you never read any EC comics before this a great introduction and a must for any fan of great visual storytelling.
