WOW! This thing is brimming with weirdness. Fun look at pulps you'd never see otherwise. I try to read one a night before going to sleep... muhahah. ( )

I understand that licencing issues probably put the kibosh on including any EC stories, that said:

The commentary talks about the use of colour, yet the strips are reprinted in black and white. One strip is even reprinted with pages out of order. (Or, at least, is in my copy.)

Interesting enough content but poor production values. ( )

The comics are pretty good, many are vintage. My only complaint is how can this be the BEST of HORROR COMICS without including EC's line of great horror editions like VAULT OF HORROR, TALE OF THE CRYPT etc. Otherwise, good collection. ( )
