When I was a kid, EC’s horror comic reprints were easy to come by, and I stocked up. Not even a creepy, socially-inept comic book guy who liked to hit on 14-year-old me could keep me away. Nowadays, EC’s books are easy to come by in a myriad of collected editions. But EC wasn’t the only horror comic around. Four Color Fear collects lesser-known imprints like Atlas, Trojan, Avon, and Comic Media into a 304 page collection. In addition to the reprinted comics, each publisher, artist, and writer is honored with extensive biographical background.
