Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
Welcome back, boils, ghouls, and gender non-boo-nary, to our series of videos celebrating spine-tinglingly spooky comics! In the 1950s, EC Comics ruled the roost with its expertly written and drawn combination of sci-fi, war, suspense, and, most notoriously, horror comics. The unholy trinity of creep-hosted horror jams was Vault of Horror, Haunt of Fear, and, the one best known today, Tales from the Crypt. Enter the crypt quietly, my dear fiends, and learn the secrets and history of the comics that millions of kids loved and that Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.) hated so much.
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.
