Description

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 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). The ultimate format for these groundbreaking comics.

This long out-of-print set includes all 22 issues of Weird Science (1950-1953) reprinted in 4 volumes. 23 covers in color. Plus notes and comments by EC scholars.

Early cover illustrations were by Feldstein. Wood, the title's leading artist, took over as the regular cover illustrator in 1952. For a period of time in 1952, Wood drew two stories per issue. The other Weird Science interior artists were Feldstein, Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Joe Orlando, George Evans, Harvey Kurtzman, George Roussos, Harrison, Will Elder, Jack Kamen, Sid Check and Jack Olesen. Writers in the early issues included Feldstein, Gaines, Kurtzman, Harrison and Gardner Fox.

Gaines and Feldstein wrote nearly all stories from 1951 to 1953.
