EC Library (HC): Kamen's Kalamity and Other Stories.

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.
