EC-in' Ya! Wood and Crandall In Color!

Warren's Comix International was filled, filled, I say, with groovy comix, but the second issue (late 1975), in Ol' Groove's opinion, is especially spectacular. Besides Groovy Age Greats like Rich Corben and Bernie Wrightson, two of EC's top horror/sci fi artists from the 1950s, Wally Wood and Reed Crandall, are represented as well--and lookin' great in the Groovy Age, baby! Comix International reprinted stories from Warren's other fear-mags, Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella, colored 'em, and packaged 'em between high-quality covers. The Wood-illustrated "The Man Hunters" was written by Gerry Boudreau and is reprinted from Eerie #60. The Crandall masterpiece, "The Beast on Bacon Street", written by Budd Lewis, was originally presented in Creepy #74. Get ready to feast your eyeballs on a titanic two-fer, Groove-ophiles!
