With Halloween around the corner, I thought I'd do my annual "requests" post. If anyone wants to see any specific stories from either EC Comics (Tales from the Crypt, Haunt of Fear, etc) or Warren comics (Creepy, Eerie, etc) let me know. Even if I posted it at some point in the past, or if it's something new, I'm open for anything.
Given the 1/3 rule, I stopped because if your average story is five pages, then that leaves little to post.
That being said, for Halloween, I figured I might post some selections from EC and Warren. So I ask...do any of you have any stories that you would like to see? Anything that I posted from the days of old, or a favorite that you think others should see, or something that you heard about but never saw? Again, I can only post 1/3 so keep that in mind. The more elaborate stories might be harder for me to share.
( Scans under the cut... )
I'm doing a report on the history of EC comics for my class. Basically, a rundown of their controversial horror titles, their other genres, the wrath of Wertham, their post Code-books, etc. Unfortunately, with the exception of "Tales from the Crypt: The Official Archives", I could not find any books through my library catalog that focus on EC specifically.
I was wondering if anyone had any books that they'd recommend, that while not about EC specifically, still discussed them at a decent length? I'm not asking for anyone to go out of their way to find something, just if you know of anything off the top of your head. I imagine there's a hundred "history of comics" books out there, so I wouldn't know where to start.
In the end, I have a feeling that the bulk of my research will come courtesy of the internets and the aforementioned "Archives" , but anything that has a new angle on something I didn't know would be a huge help.( For legality... )
