Just what is/are "EC Comics?

EC Comics was a comic book publishing company in the forties and fifties that published titles such as Tales from the Crypt and Weird Science. In the early 90s, a reboot of Two-Fisted Tales was carried out by Harvey Kurtzman, bearing the EC logo; However, the new series lasted only 2 issues. Later on in the 2000s a attempt to relaunch it and print a new series of CRYPTs was carried out by comic publishing company Papercutz, but the title lasted for only 13 issues. Most recently Tales from the Crypt Vol 3 comics were published by Super Genius with EC.
