This was a fun read, though maybe not as fun as the first volume. The stories start out strong, but lose their kick over the course of the volume. It's like having that third jelly doughnut: still good but definitely crossing the line into over-indulgence.

Of course, I didn't go into this expecting great horror stories. I went in looking for old-school vibes and classic riffs from the dawn of horror comics. Volume Two delivers on that count. The plots are "Tales from the Crypt Standard Issue": i

A much stronger collection then volume one. The kinks have been worked out, the editors know what they are doing and everything is firing on all cylinders. They aren't the most literate stories you'll read in the EC line, but they are fun and entertaining. Great stuff!

Mostly acceptable graphic novel along the lines of the old style horror comic books. Stories were o.k., but nothing much special.

Quality work from the arch-nemesis of the Comic Book Code Authority. This will keep you up at night (checking under the bed, etc).
great 50's horror comic which was burned in many towns due to violence.just look at the cover.
