Description

An attractive, above average copy of this SuspenStories set with only light reading wear.

"One of a box set of hard cover deluxe slipcased volumes reprinting the complete EC comics reproduced from the original artwork. The stories are printed in stunningly detailed black & white with the covers in full colour. The books are smyth sewn and deluxe bound to last a lifetime of re-reading."

Russ Cochran and William Gaines collaborated on the Complete EC Comics Library series to create the definitive reprinting of these legendary 1950s comics. The black & white reproduction is excellent and the large page size allows one to fully appreciate the artwork. The comic book covers are colored by Marie Severin (the comics' original colorist). This is the ultimate format for these groundbreaking comics.

This long out-of-print set includes all 27 issues of the classic EC title reprinted in five volumes. Crime SuspenStories no. 1 (Oct./Nov. 1950) - no. 27 (Feb./Mar. 1955). All 27 covers in color. Artists include Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig, George Evans, Jack Kamen, Wally Wood, Graham Ingels, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Davis, George Roussos, Sid Check, Al Williamson, Fred Peters, Joe Orlando, Will Elder, Reed Crandall, Bernard Krigstein and Frank Frazetta. Plus notes and comments by EC scholars.
