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!
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!!!
