Legendary ‘Tales from the Crypt’ Horror Label EC Comics Returns This Summer

Founded by Max Gaines in 1944 and taken over by son William Gaines later that decade, EC Comics is one of the most legendary names in horror, known for their series’ Tales from the Crypt, The Vault of Horror, and The Haunt of Fear. Eighty years after the company came onto the scene, THR reports this afternoon that EC Comics is coming back from the dead.

THR reports, “Oni Press, the publisher perhaps best known for the breakout indie hit Scott Pilgrim, has partnered with William M. Gaines Agent, Inc., the rights holders of the EC line, to launch all-new stories with A-list comics creators beginning this summer.”

“EC Comics is one of the most artistically important and culturally significant publishers of all time,” Oni’s publisher Hunter Gorinson told The Hollywood Reporter.

He added, “In ways both artful and shocking, EC confronted the darkness lurking behind the thin facade of American society — a throughline of radically confrontational storytelling that we intend to both uphold and escalate with the first new EC tales in decades.”

Epitaphs From the Abyss is the title of the very first horror series from the relaunched EC Comics label, and it’s releasing in July. Cruel Universe will follow in August.

THR notes, “The new comics will keep the anthology format with creative teams rotating in and out.”

“We’re challenging ourselves to evolve EC’s relentless energy and fearless sensibilities in ways never before attempted,” said Gorinson. “These are intense comics for our intense times.”
