*EC: Universally acknowledged as the apex of comics production in the 1950s, EC pushed the boundaries, not just in terms of what could be depicted – and there were publishers more gory, but less classy – but also in story content. This was never more evident than in their Crime SuspenStories title, where adultery, betrayal, and other unconventional relationships were portrayed in a mature and intelligent way, whereas they had seldom even been alluded to before. The perpetrators inevitably got their just desserts, but the path along the way was fraught and compelling. Haunt of Fear, like its more famous sibling Tales From The Crypt, presented grisly tales of dismemberment and bloodshed with a cynical glee that set it head and shoulders above the competition – and of course, both series had the finest illustrators in the industry at the time! We have new stocks of Crime SuspenStories from #13 to #16, and Haunt of Fear #19 to #24, plus one early issue of Weird Fantasy – the science-fiction series EC’s editors themselves were most proud of. Pictured are Crime SuspenStories #13 FN £130, and #14 (actually the second issue) of Weird Fantasy App. GD/VG at £70. The Weird Fantasy has a slight right edge trim and three small pieces of tape on the inside front cover, hence the low price for such an early issue.
