In the genre's peak period (1951-1954), before it almost destroyed thecomics industry, before the watchdog groups and Congress, over fifty horrortitles appeared each month, and Four Color Fear collects the finest ofthese into a single robust and affordable volume. EC is the comic book companymost fans associate with horror: therefore, for the average reader there remainsunseen quite a batch of genuinely disturbing, compulsive, imaginative, at timeseven touching, horror stories presented from a variety of visions andperspectives, many of which at their best can stand toe to toe with EC. In Four Color Fear , the better horror companies are represented, and artistperennials contribute both stories and covers, with many of the forty full-sizedcovers created by specialists Bernard Baily, L.B. Cole, William Eckgren, andMatt Fox.
