Issue #24 (#40) witnessed the first of three stories from Berni Krigstein. These stories feature werewolves, ghouls, coffins, live burial, fetid swamps & a dark thread of humour that ran through all ECs. The latter was enlivened by the pun-laden humorous asides of Ghoulunatics, The Vault Keeper, The Crypt Keeper & the mistress of mayhem, The Old Witch. This volume is a great, convenient way to read and keep EC's horror classics. Soft Cover Full Colour
