Cochran and Gladstone 64-pagers & East Coast Reprints

Weird Fantasy #13 cover by Al Feldstein

At the beginning of the nineties Gladstone reprinted 18 issues and Russ Cochran 17 issues of EC Comics in 64-page comic book format. So there are two original EC issues in one 64-pager. But it is difficult to know what is inside a 64-pager. For example the first Gladstones issue Tales from the Crypt #1 includes original Tales from the Crypt #33 and original Crime Suspenstories #17.

Gladstone reprinted their 64-pagers with the following titles:

  • Haunt of Fear #1-2 (changed from Weird Science)
  • Tales from the Crypt #1-6
  • Vault of Horror #1-6
  • Weird Science #1-4
  • Russ Cochran reprinted his 64-pagers with the following titles:

  • Haunt of Fear #1-5
  • Tales from the Crypt #1-7
  • Vault of Horror #1-5
  • Earlier, in the eighties Russ Cochran had 12 issues of EC Classics reprinted in bigger format (8 stories in each, as in 64-pagers). Some issues were collections taken from several original EC comic books, but 7 of these issues included all of the stories from two different EC comic books.

    Even in the seventies East Coast Comics reprinted 12 EC-issues in normal 32-page comic book format. Each EC Classic Reprint included one EC comic book almost in its original form (4 stories in each, which is the usual EC formula).
