Editorial Reviews

Paul Buhle - Rain Taxi
“The appearance of the EC Library with these volumes and more to come offers… an extraordinary opportunity for readers to delve comic art history, and enjoy the real golden age of comics all over again. The art, the scripts, but above all the collective talent on display here will reward many close readings.”

Meet the Author

One of America’s most beloved and best known illustrators, Jack Davis was born in December 2, 1924 in Atlanta, Georgia, and still makes his home in the area.

Albert B. Feldstein (1925-2014) was an American writer,
editor, and artist, best known for his work at EC Comics (particularly in the science fiction genre) and, from 1956 to
1985, as the editor of the satirical magazine Mad.

In addition to his pioneering work on the “serious” EC war comics, Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) created the all-time greatest satirical comic (with Mad), the most widely-read adult comic strip (with “Little Annie Fanny” in Playboy), and one of the earliest graphic novels (with the 1959 The Jungle Book).

Wallace Allan Wood (1927–1981)was one of the best and funniest cartoonists of the earliest iteration of Mad magazine. Thanks to his stellar work on the EC Comics line, Wood is also widely considered one of America’s greatest science fiction cartoonists. He was also a pioneering underground cartoonist/publisher, with his magazine witzend.
