Original EC Comic Tales From The Crypt No. 42 Pre Code Horror Comic June-July 1954

** Same Estate**

EC Comic Collection!!

Entertaining Comics, more commonly known as EC Comics produced some of the best and demented Horror Comics. In the 1940's to and through the 1950's, the sights of ghouls, demons, skeletons and other worldly creatures terrified and drew kids to and through their pages.
The magazine had the best of the best and some then unknown artist draw, paint and scare kids. Later these pages would inspire, movies, bands, and other future artists and fellow comic artists.
In the mid to late 1950's the comic industry started to regulate and censor these comics for what they said " warping and and destroying the youth of America". They said the same thing about Rock and Roll, Punk Rock and Rap to and yup, we are still here on the earth!

All the EC will be from one client and each listing will be noted that they are from the same estate with "Same Estate" at the top of the listing.
