Comics pioneer Max Gaines started EC Comics in 1944 as Educational Comics. With his 1947 death, his son, William M. Gaines, changed the name to Entertaining Comics and proceeded to put out controversial horror, crime, and science fiction comics, working with some of the greatest talent to ever do comics. EC was also the birthplace of Harvey Kurtzman's MAD magazine and his much-admired war comics. And it was the focus of attacks by Fredric Wertham and others. On it's 75th anniversary, comics historians including Grant Geissman (The Wonderful, Horrible EC Comics Book), Danny Fingeroth (A Marvelous Life: The Amazing Story of Stan Lee), Arie Kaplan (From Krakow to Krypton: Jews and Comic Books), and Dr. Travis Langley (The Joker Psychology: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them) look back on the lasting impact EC has had on comics and on popular culture in general.
