EC Comics was an American publisher of comic books. In 1954–55, censorship pressures prompted EC to cease publication of all its comic books except Mad, which was converted into a black-and-white magazine.
EC's New Trend comic books included:
Tales from the Crypt
The Haunt of Fear
The Vault of Horror
Weird Science-Fantasy (replacing Weird Fantasy and Weird Science)
Mad (Humor in a Jugular Vein)
Panic (Humor in a Varicose Vein)
