About the Author
William Maxwell "Bill" Gaines (b. 1922, d. 1992) inherited EC Comics in the 1950s. Under his stewardship, it shifted focus from "educational" to "entertaining." He began publishing and editing (and often, co-plotting the stories in) genre comic books, including Tales from the Crypt, Mad, and more. He hired creators such as Jack Davis, Harvey Kurtzman, Al Feldstein, Wallace Wood, and others; thanks to them, EC comics are considered one of the medium's high water marks. He testified infamously at the Senate Subcommittee for Juvenile Delinquency, which led to the Comics Code and the censorship of many of EC's titles. In response, Gaines turnedMad into a magazine, and published it for the next forty years. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 1993.
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.
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.
Al Williamson (b. 1931, d, 2010) was a comics artist best known for his work on EC's Weird Science and Weird Fantasy comics titles (and, later, Creepy and Eerie, comics magazines that featured EC alumni). He also adaptedStar Wars into comics, and worked on the newspaper strips Flash Gordon and Secret Agent X-9, both creations of Alex Raymond. He also inked various Marvel superhero comics, and was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2000.
George Evans was a comics illustrator associated with several of the Classics Illustrated series.

The comic art skills on display in this volume are stunning and the high quality of the book itself is a fitting tribute to them.
One query: This is called 'Volume Three, issues 13-18 complete'. The actual comics inside are issues 29-34. Am I missing something here???

Here, we are once again treated to six spine-tingling issues that will take you to strange islands, introduce you to not so imaginary friends, and even reveal the Crypt-Keeper's origins.
If you're reading this review you're either already a fan and curious about what others are saying, or you're a newcomer that's unsure what you might be getting into. Well newcomers, I can assure you you can't go wrong. Don't worry about your kids being 'desensitized', they won't be. I was no more than five when I picked up my first Crypt and have never looked back. Though some of these stories will have you peering over your shoulder from time to time, just to be sure no one's there.
Now, shut the lights down, stop that corpse from screaming and get reading.
