    • Child of tomorrow and other stories
      Child of tomorrow and other stories
      written and illustrated by Al Feldstein
      Al Feldstein is best known as the main writer/editor of the EC comics line during the first half of the 1950s and then the editor of Mad Magazine for the first three decades of its existence. But what many don't know or remember is that Feldstein was also an accomplished and distinctive cartoonist, whose comics (which he both wrote and drew, a relative rarity in those days) adorned the pages of many of those self same EC comics. His powerfully composed, meticulously inked pages, often featuring grotesque creatures or scenes of ghastly destruction (and some of the greatest stiffly handsome/beautiful specimens of 1950s humanity ever put to paper), were a vital part of the allure of these classic comics. Feldstein's contributions to the first year and a half of EC's two SF titles, Weird Science and Weird Fantasy comprise 16 classic O. Henry-style shock-ending stories. Evocative, vintage titles as Things From Outer Space. The Flying Saucer Invasion, Spawn of Venus, Destruction of the Earth, and Am I Man or Machine? will be collected in their integrity in this volume. This collection also boasts a new interview with Feldstein about his years at EC, focusing in particular in his work on these science fiction titles that were the company's pride and joy (and were killed a few years later by the Comics Code).

    • Original sin.
    • Judgment day and other stories
      Judgment day and other stories
      illustrated by Joe Orlando
      Joe Orlando was a mainstay at EC, especially on science fiction, and this collects 23 of his best SF stories. All of them, most scripted by Al Feldstein, serve up classic O. Henry-style endings, such as "I, Robot," and "Fallen Idol." The title story is one of EC's most famous, with its blunt anti-racism message. When it was printed during the era of the Comics Code, publisher Bill Gaines and Feldstein had to fight to keep the story's final panel "reveal" (and thus its whole point) intact. It was a Pyrrhic victory, however, as "Judgment Day" became the last story in the last comic book EC published. This volume also features two of Orlando's outstanding adaptations of classic Ray Bradbury science fiction stories: "The Long Year" and "Outcast of the Stars." Also included are all of EC's "Adam Link" adaptations, a series which was later also adapted for The Outer Limits TV show and featured Leonard Nimoy.
