“Homage to this EC Impact Series & Krigstein's horror/suspence classic.
In grad school, my thesis advisor brought in a tattered, well thumbed through edition of EC Classics. Among them was MASTER RACE and my first exposure to B. Krigstein and his work. Needless to say - it blew my mind.
I was enthralled with the collection of stories. It was easily my first real sit down with ANY form of EC Comics. (A new world, door, window, whatever - was opened that day...). Something about the pace, suspense, movement and storytelling of this story, especially, made everything suddenly click into place - How I got interested in visual-storytelling, illustration and the possibility of working in comics as a profession - it all just clicked. Krigstein's work lead me to Berthet & Bernet, rediscovering Caniff and so on (too many to name but much respect to all) - I was hooked...
...and have been happily addicted to this narrative/ink on paper crack-habit ever since.
Inspirational stuff. Long live storytelling!” - Nathan
