About the Author:

George Evans (1920–2001) worked as a World War II aircraft mechanic, which informed his depiction of all kinds of airplanes in breathtaking aerial acrobatics. He was the regular artist on the newspaper strip Secret Agent Corrigan (a.k.a. Secret Agent X-9) from 1980 until his retirement in 1996.

In addition to his pioneering work on the “serious” EC war comics, Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) created the all-time greatest satirical comic (with Mad), the most widely-read adult comic strip (with “Little Annie Fanny” in Playboy), and one of the earliest graphic novels (with the 1959 The Jungle Book).

Albert B. Feldstein (1925-2014) was an American writer, editor, and artist, best known for his work at EC Comics (particularly in the science fiction genre) and, from 1956 to 1985, as the editor of the satirical magazine Mad.

Review:

“About half of the strips reprinted in this volume of Fantagraphics’ wonderful EC artists’ collections involve war and flying men. ... Reading those stories was a joy... [The] crime stories are wonderful pieces, full of life and energy and verve.”
- Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin
