From the publisher:

Here is your chance to collect some of the most iconic comic book covers by some of the greatest artists to ever pick up a pencil!

EC Comics, under the guidance of publisher Bill Gaines, was--according to the editor of this collection--the greatest line of comics ever done.

This once-in-a-liftime Artist's Edition collects more than 140 EC covers by their best and brightest talents. The luminaries included in this gigantic (15 x 22 inches!) tome include: Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman, Graham Ingels, Al Williamson, Johnny Craig, Frank Frazetta, Jack Davis, Al Feldstein, and more!

To make a baseball analogy, this is a Murderers Row every bit as noteworthy as the '27 Yankees!

To Date IDW Publishing has won SIX Eisner Awards (the comic book equivalent of the Academy Awards).
