"EC Comics" ("Entertaining Comics") were all published from the late 1940s until around 1956, when the Comics Code Authority whitewashed all comic books to remove all themes of horror and violence. Psychiatrist Fredric Wertham and Senator Estes Kefauver's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency attacked horror comics as causes of the rise in juvenile delinquency and crimes by minors. These comic books were accused of having no redeeming value to society and were effectively banned by the actions of these groups in creating the Comics Code. "EC Comics" were superior to other comics of the 1950s because of a higher quality of writing and artwork, and they were widely imitated by other comics publishers. The subject matter for "EC Comics" were horror, science fiction/fantasy, crime stories, war stories, and stories with a social message that generally had a twist or "shock" ending. This volume reprints the first six complete issues (24 stories) of the comic book "The Vault of Horror", originally published in 1950 and 1951, and features classic horror stories of vampires, werewolves, ghouls and monsters in the vein of the early "Dracula", "Frankenstein" and "Wolf Man" movies.

John "Johnny" Thomas Alexis Craig (born in 1925 in Pleasantville, New York) drew one of the most infamous covers in comic book history: the severed head Crime SuspenStories that was spotlighted at the Kefauver comics hearings. He passed away in 2001.
Graham Ingels was born in 1915 and died in 1991.
The Brooklyn-born Jack Kamen (1920-2008) began his career as a pulp illustrator and spent his last professional decades as an illustrator, but is best remembered for his half-decade at EC (and his 1982 contributions to the EC-inspired movie Creepshow).
JACK E. DAVIS is the award-winning illustrator of many wildly funny picture books, including Yo-yo Man by Daniel Pinkwater, Sweet Tooth by Margie Palatini, and Monster Goose by Judy Sierra. He lives in Port Townsend, Washington.
Harry Harrison, author of innumerable science fiction novels and stories, divides his time between Ireland and California.

The stories themselves are really fun and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Some may find it dated, but not me. I long for the days when comics were fun like this and didn't take themselves so freaking seriously. Nice spooky stories with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
Buy and enjoy!
My beloved late uncle, who shared a love of comic books with me would share many of his comics with me as I was growing up. He was a collector and had many rare comics, including several classic horror comics from the 50s and 60s. My mom disapproved of a young girl reading such comics, so it became our little secret, and even though decades have passed since then, I have such fond memories of these comics so much so that when I came across these EC Archives Comics, I could not resist them. I have only one in my collection at present but plan on adding on to my collection whenever budget allows.
They may be pricey, but worth every penny! Volume 1 of THE VAULT OF HORROR, contains Issues 1-6 and features:
A Foreword by R.L. Stine - his reminiscences of discovering and enjoying these comics brought back my own fond memories, with a touch of humor and nostalgia that is just so apt for this edition

The comics are printed on high-quality, glossy paper and the coloring and art work is amazing. I truly do not understand some of the complaints. To me, this is pure brilliance. Yes, sometimes the coloring appears garish, but I feel that is in keeping with the theme. Also, I am just thrilled to have these comics again - alive and thriving in the modern world. Bonuses: the inclusion of ads from the time, commentary by the Vault-Keeper, and more! C'mon, how could any classic horror comics fan resist these wonderful editions?
