DC comics were alright , but to my warped tastes I preferred the EC comics brand. My oldest cousin, with whom I lived for a few years after my birth, collected EC comics in the 1950's. He went into the MArines in the 1960's and left me all his comics. I have approximately 5 years of all the "Tales from the Crypt" and "The Vault of Horror". These wre comic books well designed to make you carp in your pants. I have them in plastic sleeves and about every ten years I take em out to marvel at the art and story lines.
EC comics were, I am happy to report, the principal reason for Congress'e interference into kids magazines that ultimately led to the "Comics Code".
These comics were popular in the 1940's and 1950's and died at the end of the 50's when the comics code required the sanitization of crime, war, and horror magazines. If it werent for the cheap newsprint that they ran em on, these things would be worth a fortune. The original MAD magazine was an EC product also and it, just like the original NATIONAL LAMPOON, was a really warped, truly inspired , and brilliant humor mah.
SO, when they decide to rerun EC comics, I will be there.
