HASH(0x9c4d6060) out of 5 stars An Excellent Reprint of a Great Horror Comic Book Series! 3 Nov. 2013
By Philip Chase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The EC Archives: Tales from the Crypt Volume 4It's a real treat to see these wonderful reprints of the comic books that gave all the kids in my neighborhood nightmares! LOL

So happy Volume 4 came out. Just received my copy Saturday and have spent a leisurely Sunday morning devouring the absolute campy, gross stories in this gorgeous volume. Ironically, at least one of the tales I had seen before and immediately guessed the surprise ending (which is very clever, as were ALL the twisted endings in these tales). Now that I'm 70 years old and perhaps more experienced and cynical than I was at the age of 12, I find it fun to reread these comics which my parents would not permit in the house for fear of corrupting us. Fortunately I knew a guy two years older who had a hidden lair of all the E.C. horror comics carefully concealed from his parents and we'd spend a couple of hours a week scaring ourselves.

If you were a fan of these publications and do not believe they seduced the innocent children any more than horror movies do even today, hurry and grab a copy of this attractive book before it disappears from availability. It's 2013 but E.C. comics still reign supreme like they did in the 1950's!

HASH(0x9cdc1fa8) out of 5 stars Dark Horse Obviously Cares! 15 Nov. 2013
By Neil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dark Horse Obviously Cares. This volume actually surpasses the Gemstone reprints in terms of quality. This is the ultimate format that I wish DC and Marvel would adopt for Omnibus and Masterworks editions alike. This is the finest format for reprinting vintage comics out there - end of discussion. First of all I love the over-size format to truly showcase the artwork instead of what a lot of other reprint editions do - which is shrink the artwork down to a significantly smaller size than originally appeared in print. The coloring is superb. What I really love about these EC Archives (and Dark Horse wisely kept going here) is the full bleed covers positioned properly on the right hand page. It's like your opening the actual comic every time. I can't stand the masterworks, archives and omnibus editions that are so cheap and lazy that they don't coordinate the page count properly to get the front cover on the right hand page. Not to mention only these EC archives go the extra mile and give you top, right and bottom edge bleed. It really feels like your flipping open the actual book from yesteryear. Kudos to Dark Horse as I think they've actually improved on the printing quality here over the Gemstone editions. Thank you for being a publisher that cares what you give to loyal readers who want a truly special experience when reading this historically important and fantastic material from days gone by.

HASH(0x9cda9b34) out of 5 stars It's here! Finally!! 2 Nov. 2013
By jeff henson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I received this book today. I have been waiting like everyone else for years for its release. I am not disappointed.

Everyone knows these books and how great they are by now so I will skip a review of the contents but rather focus on how well Dark Horse did in the printing. The new book is about 1/8" smaller than the original from Gemstone but barely noticeable at all. The spine doesn't exactly match up to the previous ones. The binding appears to be sewn like the previous ones and also glued? Evidently it's both as I see stitching and glue. The book overall seems just a tad thinner indicating thinner paper was used (same page count from Vol 3). But honestly I couldn't tell when I actually felt the paper. It was nice and thick. Similar to the Hellboy Library Editions DH put out. The colors are fantastic and bright.

I can't believe I finally have this and even though little things like the spine not lining up and such might bother some perfectionists, I am just overjoyed to have this book, and hopefully all the others soon, in my collection.

Thank you Dark Horse!!!

HASH(0x9cdc124c) out of 5 stars Beautiful Reproduction 7 Dec. 2013
By Tracy Cramer Austin, Texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The printing and colors are gorgeous and the artists were still working at the top of their form. There are also several gems of stories contained here. But, frankly, the stories at this late stage in the life of Tales from the Crypt were definitely starting to get tired. That said, I would not for a moment pass up being able to see the work of these great artists so beautifully reproduced.

HASH(0x9c7eb81c) out of 5 stars Tales from the Crypt volumes are the best! 26 Nov. 2013
By Bryan Sikes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the old Tales from the Crypt comics. They are re colored for modern times which is amazing, but all the same old content is there. It is a little new and old, but I have no complaints. If you ever were a fan of comics or the Tv shows (cartoon or live action) this is a must have.
