75 Years of EC Comics
In 1947, Bill Gaines inherited his legendary father’s fledgling publishing company, EC Comics. Over the next eight years, he and a “who’s who” of the era including Al Feldstein, Harvey Kurtzman, and Wally Wood would reinvent the very notion of the comic book with titles like Tales from the Crypt, Weird Science, and MAD. With more than 1,000 images and rarities, there’s something new here for even the most die-hard EC Fan-Addicts.
“The History of EC Comics explores an under-narrated story and acknowledges EC’s profound impact on other comic book artists – and on pop culture more broadly.” ~ hypebeast.com“A true behemoth.” ~ itsnicethat.com“EC comic books, which spawned notorious titles like Tales From the Crypt, Shock SuspenStories and Mad, have become the comics that refused to die.” ~ The New York Times
Grant Geissman is one of the world’s leading experts on EC Comics and MAD magazine, and the author and designer of four books on the subject, three of them nominated for an Eisner Award. He is also an Emmy-nominated guitarist and composer who co-wrote the music for the hit television series Two and a Half Men and Mike & Molly.
