That last panels kind of a cheat, but yeah...Those EC guys really had some balls on 'em.

Thank you for posting this!

This is so brilliant!

I may need to track these down to scan high res and screen onto a t-shirt!

Brandon, you know I wouldn't ask if it wasn't a dire concern, since it's totally going to destroy the comedy, but... what is going on in the one with the woman pawing at herself?

Naladahc: I'd love to see that! They would make a pretty bitchin' t-shirt. I'd never really read any EC comics before. I'm hooked now.

Chris: Believe it or not, she's having chest pains from the strain put on her heart by the "G-pull" of the ship taking off and landing.

Eventually her husband, who just happens to be a doctor, decides after landing on an alien planet that another take off would kill her. They're stranded. Or at least she is.

He leaves to get some equipment and building materials and makes it back after six years. Upon landing he kills this hideous, tentacled beast that's waiting for him.

When he finds his wife she reveals that...**gasp**...it was their son he had killed! She had been pregnant when he left and the planet had mutated the poor kid.

Man, I love these old comics.

I don't know what's more disturbing - the actual posted panels, or the description of the actual story...

Man, today's comics certainly don't contain enough "shock-couches."
