GAH, so much great stuff coming out!



I just pulled THIS off of ICV2's website... the great EC horror and science fiction comics are to be reprinted... in COLOR HARDCOVERS! Wooo-HOOOOO! The only thing that makes me a bit nervous is this:

The EC Archives editions will present the original EC stories with all new colors based on the originals, but utilizing new methods of shading and texture to enhance and improve each story's impact.

We'll see. If you've never read any of these truly timeless classic comics, check 'em out... you won't be disappointed!

Yoiks! I almost got a headache reading that listing...looks like most of it's mid-to-low gread, but heck, a mid-grade Action #1 is still tens of thousands of dollars.

Luckily I won't have to agonize over this auction... I think that if I sold EVERY SINGLE THING I OWNED, including my organs, I would still not have enough for the opening bid.

I'm baffled by the whole "Foreword by GEORGE LUCAS" thing. Does anyone really care what he's got to say about sci-fi anymore?

Sorry, guess I'm just a little disenchanted with the "genius."

I think they're getting "contemporary" pop culture guys to do the intros to these because, face it, EC Comics were the WILDEST THING OUT THERE in the mid-1950s, and it's influence on creators is immeasurable... like MAD's influence on so many people in so many fields.

George Lucas? Three words:


Howard the Duck.
