The last of Gemstone Publishing's hardcover EC Archives collections came out in 2009, and it seemed for a while that efforts to collect the company's classic horror comics had come to a sad end. That's why today's news that Dark Horse Comics is picking up the mantle and bringing back the EC Archives with two new volumes: Tales from the Crypt Volume 4 and Vault of Horror Volume 3, coming this October and next January, respectively, is so welcome.
