5.0 von 5 Sternen Age of Dames and Golden Ghouls 21. September 2013
Von Marc Horn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
There ain't no dames anymore, but in Johnny Craig's stories that were published in EC during the fifties, they are bursting from the panels and tearing up the pages. That's tearing as in ripping, not tearing as in bawling: dames don't cry, they steal, they lie, tell you the way it is gonna be, and kill ya if you don't do things their way. Dames are easy to spot, their breasts are popping out of their tops, and their dress is so tight it makes you wonder how they can walk. They are like vertigo on your libido, making you dizzy and pulling you over the edge toward violent insanity, you might even lose control to the point you hit her, but if you do, you will be sorry, because dames never forgive, they just get even and take a little bit off the top.
Johnny Craig seems to figure that a guy who would mess with a dame, got's it coming. Sure, he can wear a wide lapelled suit with starched white shirt and pin-stripped tie, but that's all window dressing hiding the solipsistic, flesh eating monster he truly is under the skin. Put a ghoul like this and a girl who is a dame together and Johnny Craig creates some very amazing stories. While the title of the book focuses on Fall Guy for Murder, most likely written by Al Feldstein and superbly drawn in a series of claustrophobic noir panels by JC, my favorite is The Execution; oh the irony. You help a stranded Samaritan one night and ----- no good deed goes unpunished. The layering and complexity of the drama in this story is chilling. Every little bit is like another brick in this man's eternal crypt.
In addition to the fantastic stories and amazing artwork of Johnny Craig and editing of Gary Groth, the introduction by Bill Mason, biography by S.C. Ringgenberg, history by Ted White and creator biographies by Tom Spurgeon and Janice Lee are very entertaining and informative. These are the things I usually don't read in a book of this type, but in this instance I am glad I did and highly recommend them to everyone who has an interest in the people who created stories with such impact our elected officials and self-appointed moral stewards felt they needed to enact special laws to protect the sanctity of our countries children. If you like the stories in this book, you might want to check out my novel Vamphora

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Fantastic Fantagraphics book with great art and stories! 27. März 2014
Von Robin Leary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Another great Fantagraphics book. Excellent Black and White art with great crime/murder and horror stories. Not one of the Fantagraphics books of the '...and other stories' series have failed to impress me yet and I highly recommend all of them. The old style vintage burlap covers are a plus too and look great on a bookshelf!

This is a must for EC fans. I wish it included some full-size prints of Johnny Craig's excellent EC covers, but it will have to do. I hope Fantagraphics eventually reprints all of the original New Trend EC stories AND COVERS!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A top-notch collection 30. April 2016
Von Frank Stoaks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A very enjoyable collection from Fantagraphics. The name Johnny Craig is perhaps not as well known as some of his peers at EC such as Wally Wood or Harvey Kurtzman but at his best he could tell a story as well as any of them. About half of this volume consists of crime short stories and the other half horror (this volume alternates between each genre after pretty much each story). These stories (most are written by Craig but a few are written by Al Feldstein, a great cartoonist in his own right) vary quite dramatically in quality. Some of them stack up very well today and still manage to pack a real punch as well as having a wonderful mix of melodrama and irony. Some of the worst though are pretty generic (yet competently done) pulp stories. Fortunately most fall into the former category.

What really makes this volume special is the art. Craig uses some wonderful storytelling techniques, some of which are pretty obviously stolen from Will Eisner, but as Picasso supposedly said, "bad artists borrow, good artists steal" and Craig is certainly a good artist. When he draws people, they often look like they are on the brink of some sort of psychologically shattering panic attack, a characteristic that Craig's work shares with Steve Ditko's. Unlike Ditko though, Craig's women are very sexy. I don't think Craig had it in him to draw a woman who didn't look like a 1950s Hollywood film noir star which is no bad thing. Unlike modern artists Craig never goes into gratuitous or tasteless territory in terms of how he draws women.

Overall Johnny Craig's work at EC, while often inconsistent, deserves to be held in very high esteem. This volume is a great addition to anyone's library if they love crime/horror and old-school comics. If you enjoy this I recommend the other volumes in Fantagraphics' excellent EC library (I believe Fantagraphics are soon going to release a volume of Craig and Feldstein's collaborations) as well as the "Creepy Presents" volumes from Dark Horse.
