The Comics Journal Library is the most comprehensive series of lavishly illustrated interviews conducted with cartoonists ever published. To celebrate the legendary EC line, here is the first of a two-volume set of interviews with the artists and writers (and publisher!) who made EC great.
Included in the first volume: career-spanning conversations with EC legends Will Elder, John Severin, Harvey Kurtzman, and Al Feldstein, as well as short interviews with EC short-timers Frank Frazetta and Joe Kubert.
Also: EC Publisher William Gaines on his infamous Senate subcommittee testimony, and probing conversations between Silver Age cartoonist Gil Kane and Harvey Kurtzman, as well as contemporary alternative cartoonist Sam Henderson and MAD great Al Jaffee.
Part of what made EC the best publisher in the history of mainstream comics was some of the most beautiful comic books drawing ever published, and every interview is profusely illustrated by pertinent examples.
The EC artists were renowned for their attention to detail, and the reproduction here takes full advantage of the oversized art book format.
