Reprints of classic EC comic book stories by Jack Davis and Al Williamson

EC is best known as the publisher of MAD, but they also published a line of horror and science fiction comics that featured some of the best cartoonists and writers in the history of comics. Today, Fantagraphics released two beautiful hardbound books that collect the work of two of their superstars: Al Williamson and Jack Davis. The reproduction quality is superb.

The Williamson collection also includes a short comic story by Frank Frazetta, called “Squeeze Play.” Sample below. (The Fantagraphics book is in black and white and the art is much cleaner than this sample.)

  2. I first encountered “50 GIRLS 50” (WEIRD SCIENCE #20, 1953) reprinted in the 1977 book ROCKETSHIP: AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY THROGH SCIENCE FICTION AND SCIENCE FACT, by Robert Malone

    1. I remember that one, Travolta sang something with Newton-John and then there was a car race. I think Lenny and Squiggy drove into a lake at the end, right?.
