EC Comics was responsible for many of the most highly regarded horror, sci-fi and crime comic books of the 1940s and 1950s including the legendary ‘Tales from the Crypt’, ‘The Vault of Horror’, ‘The Haunt of Fear’, ‘Weird Science’ and ‘Crime SuspenStories’. Now celebrating its 70th anniversary, the influential company has teamed up with Fright-Rags for a line of limited edition apparel. Come on inside and check it out.
Fright-Rags has created shirts based on three classic EC cover artworks: Jack Davis’ ‘Tales from the Crypt’ #37, Al Feldstein’s ‘Tales from the Crypt’ #24 and Johnny Craig’s ‘Crime SuspenStories’ #22. Each full-color design is limited to 250 pieces and available on T-shirts, girls shirts and zip-up hoodies.
For the more serious fan, Fright-Rags offers a limited edition box set containing all three shirts along with an exclusive EC Comics logo baseball tee, a fan-addict patch and a fan-addict certificate, all packaged in a collector’s box. Only 200 of these box sets are available.
All items are available for pre-order from Fright-Rags’ official website as or the time of this writing. Due to the limited nature of the product, they may sell out during the pre-order period. Orders are expected to ship in early November.
The EC designs follow Fright-Rags’ recent Tales from the Crypt apparel, which is in stock while supplies last. The company has also released new shirts inspired by ‘Twin Peaks’, ‘Salem’s Lot’, ‘Witchboard’ and other titles.
