Upcoming Stuff of Interest - EC Archives

THE EC COMICS ARCHIVES: WEIRD SCIENCE VOLUME 1 HC

Star Wars creator George Lucas kicks off the full-color, chronological, hardcover presentation of the EC Comics line with a foreword introducing readers to the wonders of Weird Science. Included are stories by Al Feldstein, Bill Gaines and others with art by legendary illustrators such as Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman, Joe Orlando, Jack Kamen, Feldstein and others from the first six issues of this pivotal comic book title!
Hardcover, 8x11, 212pgs, Full Colour $49.95


I was a bit doubtful, but this series looks like it could be pretty impressive if done right, and it certainly is off to a good start, with some good big mainstream names doing the introductions and looking to get a lot better distribution than previous EC reprints. Hopefully they'll be able to keep them in print for a while, since I'll probably want to pick up many of them eventually, but a $50 book (even with a decent discount) every month is kind of hard to fit in the budget.
