Between 1950 and 1956 EC Comics enjoyed an almost unparalleled run of success publishing a range of groundbreaking horror, science fiction, war and crime comics whose influence can still be felt to this day.

Over the last few decades there have been several attempts to reprint the EC library in various different formats culminating with Gemstone Publishings short lived plan to reprint all the comics in their entirety, with each hardback volume containing 6 entire issues. This reprint series, which would have included all the classic EC titles – including Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror and Weird Science amongst others – stalled after only a dozen or so releases.
