Farewell to EC's Al Feldstein - Collector's Treasure of the Day

Tales of Terror #2 Revisited Original Painting by Al Feldstein (personal collection)

Farewell to Al Feldstein (1925-2014), longtime editor of MAD Magazine, and contributing artist, writer, and editor for most of the EC Comics titles in the 1940s and 1950s. Feldstein passed away Tuesday at his home in Montana. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this deluxe limited edition set of EC Archives: Weird Science #1 and 2 (Gemstone, 2007). Leather covered hardcover editions with gilt edging. Volume 1 reprints the first six issues in color and is signed by Al Feldstein. Volume 2 reprints the second six issues in color and is signed by Al Williamson (1931-2010). Each volume comes in a cloth-covered box with a pair of white gloves; in original cardboard packing. Excellent condition. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La. As a special bonus, I'm proud to share with you one of our favorite paintings hanging in our offices (not for sale).
