 As you may may have seen, a number of my EC posts over the last couple of years have been in black and white. I've been using pages from Fantagraphic's "EC Comics Library" which are in effect artist-based collections in black and white. You can view them on Comixology here.

Conversely, Dark Horse has been putting out their own series of EC reprints. These versions are digitally recolored and are published in chronological order. There are some here.

I will probably continue to use Fantagraphics' versions for the time being just because I already have them in my collection but I was wondering which versions you would prefer to see if I was able to pick from both.

So each June I sometimes try to post a Bradbury comic or two in his memory. EC did numerous Bradbury adaptations and 'The Lake' is probably the strongest.

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.
