"50 Girls 50" And Other Stories (The Ec Comics Library)

This spotlight on the illustrator Al Williamson focuses on science fiction and includes a couple of stories written by Ray Bradbury, including "I, Robot" and "A Sound of Thunder."

"50 Girls 50" And Other Stories (The Ec Comics Library)

This entry in the EC series focuses on Al Williamsons comics work, primarily in the sci-fi genre.

Barely old enough to drink when he joined the EC Comics stable, Al Williamson may have been the new kid on the block, but a lifetime of studying such classic adventure cartoonists as Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon) and Hal Foster (Prince Valiant) had made him a kid to reckon with as he proved again and again in the stories he created for ECs legendary New Trend comics, in particular Weird Science and Weird Fantasy. As a result of Williamsons focus, its possible to compile all of Williamsons New Trend EC work into one book which Fantagraphics is finally doing here. Sci-fi aficionados should note that although most of the stories were written by Al Feldstein, 50 Girls 50 features three of ECs legendary Ray Bradbury adaptations, including I, Rocket and A Sound of Thunder and a unique curiosity, a strip adapted from a short story submitted by a teenage Harlan Ellison. Williamson ran with a gang of like-minded young Turks dubbed the Fleagle Gang, who would help one another out on assignments. Thus this book includes three stories upon which Williamson was joined by the legendary Frank Frazetta, and one story (Food for Thought) where Roy Krenkel provided his exquisite alien landscapes, to make it one of the most gorgeous EC stories ever printed. As a supplementary bonus, 50 Girls 50 includes three stories drawn by Fleagles sans Williamson: Frazettas Shock SuspenStories short Squeeze Play; Krenkels meticulous Time to Leave; and Angelo Torress An Eye for an Eye, an EC story that famously fell prey to censorship and was not released until the 1970s. As with other Fantagraphics EC titles, 50 Girls 50 will also include extensive story notes by EC experts. Yes

This entry in the EC series focuses on Jack Daviss work, with an emphasis on the horror genre.

Tales From the Crypt was the quintessential American horror comic book, and Jack Davis the quintessential Tales From the Crypt artist: A brilliant virtuoso whose long-limbed, cartoony-but-hyperdetailed slapstick both cut against and amplified the weird and nauseating grotesqueries that spilled from the EC Comics writers fevered minds, including as seen in this volume Taint the Meat... Its the Humanity, an evil-butcher horror story that ends pretty much like youd expect any evil-butcher horror story to end. Presenting the classic EC material in reader-friendly, artist-and-genre-centric packages for the first time, Taint the Meat collects every one of Daviss 24 Crypt stories in one convenient, gore-drenched package. Mostly written by EC editor Al Feldstein, these stories run the gamut from pure supernatural horror (the werewolf story Upon Reflection and the vampire story Fare Tonight, Followed by Increasing Clottyness) to science gone horribly wrong (Bats in My Belfry!), as well as the classic disbeliever gets his comeuppance story (Grounds For Horror!) to ECs bread and butter, the ridiculously grisly revenge-of-the-abused tale (The Trophy! and Well-Cooked Hams!) seasoned with buckets of blood and some of the most godawful punning titles ever committed to newsprint. Tales From the Crypt was the inspiration for the no-holds-barred pop-culture horror revolution of the 1970s and later, be it Stephen King, Tobe (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) Hooper, zombiemeister George A. Romero, or the current generation of extreme-horror practitioners like Eli (Hostel) Roth. Yet try as they may, no one has been able to capture the combination of technical virtuosity, tongue-in-cheek grisliness, and sheer naughty desire to provoke and appall that these classics managed to pull off again and again. Taint the Meat will also include extensive story notes by EC experts from around the world. Yes
