EC Covers Artist’s Edition
EC Comics, under the guidance of publisher Bill Gaines, was-according to the editor of this collection-the greatest line of comics ever done.
This once-in-a-lifetime Artist’s Edition collects more than 120 EC covers by their best and brightest talents. The luminaries included in this gigantic (15 x 22 inches!) tome include:
Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman. Graham Ingels, Johnny Craig, Al Williamson, Frank Frazetta, Jack Davis, Al Feldstein, and more.
To make a baseball analogy, this is a Murderers Row every bit as noteworthy as the ’27 Yankees!
To date, IDW Publishing’s Artist’s Edition series has won SIX Eisner Awards!
Each cover has been shot from the original art. While appearing to be in black and white, these images were actually scanned in color, enabling the reader to see all the subtle little nuances that make original art unique. Blue pencil notations, zip-a-tone, whiteout, all of these and more are clearly visible. Honestly, the only better way to see these covers is to be holding the original art in your hand.
