One of a box set of hard cover deluxe slip cased 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 color. 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). The ultimate format for these groundbreaking comics.

Cover illustrations were by Feldstein with the exception of two by Joe Orlando, one collaboration by Feldstein and Al Williamson, plus another collaboration by Williamson with Frank Frazetta. Artists who drew stories for this EC title were Feldstein, Frazetta, Williamson, Orlando, Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman, George Roussos, Harrison, Reed Crandall, Will Elder, Bernard Krigstein, Jack Kamen, John Severin and Mac Elkin. Writers in the early issues included Feldstein, Gaines, Kurtzman, Harrison and Gardner Fox. Gaines and Feldstein wrote nearly all stories from 1951-–53.
