“In the summer of 1954, Los Angeles, California, city councilman Ernest Debs introduced legislation that would restrict the sale of horror and crime comics to minors. Since the end of World War II, various local and state municipalities around the country had experimented with legal measures designed to reduce the influence of comics in young readers’ lives. Some of these measures met with limited success, but all told the popularity and sales of comics flourished rather than abated. Debs’s proposal was passed to committee for a public hearing on September 1, 1954.”
I put this piece together while living outside of Hiroshima Japan in 2016. I compiled an album of Thin Lizzy tracks that dealt with the shadier side of life which I titled "Grim Tales From the Streets" and I used this as the cover art. . Phil Lynott could convey a story in a song better than anyone from my perspective and was a prolific song writer till the day he passed away.

This illustration by Jack Davis was created in the 1950's for comic publisher Bill Gaines. Davis served in the Navy during World War ll and at the war's end moved to New York to try to find work as an llustrator. He was destitute until he applied for a job at EC Comics which was run by William Gaines. He began to draw their horror stories and his work became a huge hit with fans and Gaines, as well, who said Davis was their fastest illustrator. Gaines eventually created Mad Magazine, Davis became one of its main artists and the rest, as they say, is history. He eventually began to design movie posters which lead to international fame as one of the world's premiere illustrators, including designing 38 Time Magazine covers. The art pictured here is filled with typical Davis design, every inch packed with outlandish caricatures, incredible shading and cross hatching and jam packed with his incredible style. #jackdavis #madmagazine #mad #billgaines #ec #eccomics #horrorcomics

All praise to MAD Magazine! I was asked to do a cover for the first issue of the MAD reboot (I think they were planning on a series of ‘alternate’ covers) but they changed their minds. Luckily it has seen print in the newest issue as the inside front cover (that’s about as close to the front cover as you can get)! :-) Enjoy these picks of my ‘work in progress’... #mad #madmagazine #eccomics #alfredeneuman #birthday #birthdaycake #aljaffeevomit #stepbystep #inprogress #howto #airbrush #madcover #usualgangofidiots

Angelo Torres turned 87 yesterday! A true comic book legend and EC artist! Happy birthday, Angelo! Cackle!
Some visual development I did of the “hand witch” from the Gravity Falls Halloween anthology “Little Gift shop of Horrors”. Tried to layer some EC comics ugliness in there. #disney #dtva #gravityfalls #handwitch #animationart #visdev #visualdevelopement #littlegiftshopofhorrors #halloweenspecial #eccomics #handsforfeet

Well, #HorrorAnthologyWeek is over now but, I just can’t help it. I’ve gotta watch George A. Romero’s Creepshow (1982). I came a little too late by mistake but, I still got to. Because this is the best of the best. The number 1 best anthology horror film. I need to watch this more because it’s been a while. After some thought & consideration, I’d say Creepshow (1982) is one of my favorite movies of all-time. It’s grown on me through time & become better & better. This film tells 5 stories based on ‘50s EC Comics. Each story is well-made. #1 - Father’s Day - A bitter old man comes back from the grave to kill his snobby family members. It feels like a classic revenge horror story & I like the creepy scenery. #2 - The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill - A hillbilly finds a meteor that grows a plant-like matter on everything it touches. It’s a classic homage to ‘50s sci-fi cheese done with a strangely comedic performance by horror writer, Stephen King. #3 - Something to Tide You Over - Leslie Nielsen gets revenge on his cheating wife by burying her & the lover neck deep in the sand as the tide comes in. Very suspenseful & scary while also showing comedian Leslie Nielsen’s talent of also playing serious roles. #4 - The Crate - A college janitor & professor find a strange crate that has a monster inside it. More gory & slasher-like to me but, done very well & scary. Praise to Hal Holbrook’s performance. #5 - They’re Creeping Up on You - A selfish dick with a bug phobia can’t seem to get rid of the crazy pest problem in his building. E.G. Marshall does a good job. I hate this asshole. He doesn’t even care when his workers commit suicide. The whole movie is well-done, features horror regulars like Tom Atkins & Adrienne Barbeau & features great colorful camera-lighting that references the horror comics of the past. It is a true horror classic but, I think it’s also classic film in general. It’s very memorable & funny. My parents would watch this & laugh & joke at every funny thing that happens. #creepshow #anthologyhorror #eccomics #talesfromthecrypt #thevaultofhorror #thehauntoffear #shocksuspenstories #crimesuspenstories #houseofmystery #houseofsecrets #thewitchinghour

Si algo está haciendo bien ECC es su linea de manga en general, y el Seinen en particular, publicando obras de autores cómo Kazuo Kamimura, Junji Ito, Koike/Kojima, Hideshi Ino, Maruo, etc. Pero hay uno que a mí me flipa y que no está recibiendo la atención que merece, me refiero a Atsushi Kaneko, un mangaka que destaca por su originalidad y su trazo único y personal, sólo con ver un dibujo suyo ya sabes que se trata de él. Yo lo descubrí en «Wet Moon» (también editado por ECC) y enseguida me atrapó, y ahora que acaba de finalizar «Deathco», su última obra, me parece un buen momento para releerla toda y reivindicar a un autor que debería estar vendiendo mucho más. Para mí de lo mejorcito del manga actual. #atsushikaneko #deathco #manga #seinen #seinenmanga #eccomics
Day 7 of #HorrorAnthologyWeek tonight’s movie is Tales from the Crypt (1972). This is the 5th installment in Amicus’ Anthology Horror Movie Series (1965-1980) & is based on EC’s comic series of the same name from the 1950s, along with The Vault of Horror & The Haunt of Fear. Four strangers get lost in a crypt & meet the mysterious Crypt Keeper who gives them visions of how they will die. This is considered the best of the series & has inspired a few horror filmmakers. Robert Zemeckis said this is his favorite horror movie to watch on Halloween & he even made the tv show, Tales from the Crypt (1989-1996). Stephen King & George Romero even tried to remake this. Instead, they made Creepshow (1982). So without Tales from the Crypt (1972), we wouldn’t of had Creepshow (1982). All the stories are well done. One of them actually predates Black Christmas (1974) as being the first Christmas horror film. It’s very dark & grim but, also fun & campy. #talesfromthecrypt #amicusanthologyhorror #anthologyhorror #thevaultofhorror #thehauntoffear #eccomics #williamgaines #amicusproductionsinc #amicusproductions #amicusfilms #amicus #miltonsubotsky #maxjrosenberg #hammerfilmproductions #hammerfilms #hammer #cultfilm #cultmovie #horrorfilm #horrormovie #horror #culthorror #britishhorror #70shorror #amicushorror #hammerhorror #1970shorror #horrorflicks #ighorror

Hoy sale un personaje de historietas que exploto en TV a finales de los 80s. El Crypt Keeper fue creado para los comics de EC en 1950 como el anfitrión de Tales from the Crypt. Este narrador nos presentaba usualmente la historia autoconclusiva a tratar, con alguna moraleja. A la vez tenia una rivalidad con otros presentadores de comics como el Vault Keeper (Vault of horror) y Old witch (Haunt of fear). Por la serie de HBO salto a la cultura popular, y también gracias a la voz única del actor de doblaje John Kassir, quien le ponía un toque de humor muy sórdido. #talesfromthecrypt #cryptkeeper #vaultofhorror #hauntoffear #eccomics #ghoulunatics #hbo
