Here's one more belated Halloween story, this one from EC comics. I personally think it's Graham Ingels' best work for the publisher in terms of detail and just the sheer horror it conveys. Also if you're a fan of these EC excerpts I recommend you check out Fantagraphics' 'EC Comics Library' collection at Comixology (they're also available in print form).

I just discovered artist Jack Davis passed away a few days ago at the age of 91. He's generally remembered for his work on MAD but he also worked on EC's horror titles. Here's one I posted a few years back, "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime" from 'Vault of Horror' #33.

In 1949, the relatively unknown cartoonist Harvey Kurtzman, coming off a run of his one-page gag strip Hey, Look! for Timely, shopped his work around and received his first EC assignment. No, it wasn't on one of their horror titles; those wouldn't be launched until the following year. Nor were they publishing war or satire comics yet. Rather, Kurtzman's EC debut was as illustrator of Lucky Fights It Through, a giveaway 16-page educational comic about syphilis...with a two-fisted cowboy setting, since western comics were in then.

I guess posting this has become somewhat of a tradition for me but it's mainly because there's very few EC Christmas stories.

A horror/suspense tale from EC's Shock SuspenStories #9 (June-July 1953). Script by Al Feldstein, art by Reed Crandall. Trigger warning for gore.

Halloween's around the corner so I figured I might post some EC stories. For my convenience and because I think it shows off the artists' work better some of the scans will come from the black and white archives.
