    Some very good information here. Only one interview (which harps repeatedly on, I believe, George Evans to state that he preferred Kurtzman's work to Feldstein's - Evans stays above the pointless fray) was really annoying, and all offered some interesting remembrances of the making of some great comics. The final article, on EC fandom, was a chore. I only wound up reading the first three or four pages, but the artist interviews make it worthwhile for EC fans. Duplicate review from Kindle edition Some very good information here.
