EC Titles

The EC issue most difficult to find, less than 200 exist

The EC Comics continually changed their issue titles and genres. These changes are difficult to follow. So I have made this list, because I have not seen this kind of compact list anywhere else.

My list contains titles published by William Gaines in the late forties and the fifties. All these so called pre-trend (1948-50), new trend (1950-55) and new direction (1955-56) EC Comics have been reprinted by Russ Cochran and Gemstone Publishing. After late fifties EC Comics has only been Mad Magazine and other Mad stuff but that's another story.
