Oni Press showcases samplers from EC Comics revival books EPITAPHS FROM THE ABYSS and CRUEL UNIVERSE

With just over a month to go before launch, Oni Press has unleashed some of the tales from upcoming EC Comics revival anthologies Epitaphs from the Abyss and Cruel Universe to whet readers appetites.

With 40-page openers, these five-issue anthology series will give a new spin on the type of storytelling that made the EC Comics line legendary in the ’40s and ’50s. Horror title Epitaphs from the Abyss #1 will hit comic shops July 24th, with its science fiction counterpart Cruel Universe #1 landing on terra firma August 7th.  

According to a press release:

“THIS SUMMER, THE MOST NOTORIOUS NAME IN TERROR IS BACK – WITH A VENGEANCE!! The imminent arrival of Oni Press’ fear-fueled revival of the immortal EC Comics is mere weeks away – led by EPITAPHS FROM THE ABYSS #1 on July 24th and followed by CRUEL UNIVERSE #1 on August 7th! Ushered into reality by some of the most twisted minds in comics today, Oni Press is proud to reveal an extended look into two terrifying EC tales from the 40-page first issues of each must-read series: “KILLER SPEC” by J. Holtham (Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) & Jorge Fornés (Rorschach, Danger Street), “FAMILY VALUES” by Stephanie Phillips (Harley Quinn, Grim) & Phil Hester (Family Tree), and “THE CHAMPION” by Matt Kindt (BRZRKR, Mind MGMT) and Kano (Gotham Central)!”
