(W) Al Feldstein, Otto Binder, Gardner Fox, Carl Wessler (A) Jack Kamen
Twenty-seven horror stories by master comics artist
Jack Kamen - including all 13 of his classic "Grim
Fairy Tales."
Jack Kamen's stories for The Vault of Horror, Tales From the Crypt,
and The Haunt of Fear favored unnerving creepiness over gruesome
shock. With his penchant for deft delineations of scheming
women, jealous husbands, murderous love triangles, and
not-so-innocent children, Kamen's pen laid down a precise, sure
line that brought each story's shock ending into sharp relief.
This volume features 27 Kamen favorites, drawn at the peak
of his powers, including: "Kamen's Kalamity," featuring the "true" origin story of
the artist himself! "How Green Was My Alley," the cautionary tale of a traveling
salesman who spends every other week at home with his wife. And every other other
week at his other home with his other wife!
Then, Kamen switches from horror to horror-humor for all 13 of his classic "Grim
Fairy Tales," revealing the gruesome underpinnings of the Grim classics. You'll
never look at Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, or Little Red Riding
Hood and their friends quite the same way again!
Plus: seven bonus crime and horror stories by EC short-termers John Alton,
Frank Bolle, Leonard Starr, Bill Fraccio, Rudy Palais, and Ed Smalle. Introduction by
Thommy Burns. Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC Artists' Library, Kamen's
Kalamity And Other Stories also features essays and notes by EC experts on these
superbly crafted, classic masterpieces.
