Kefauver was Right. Bill Gaines Shocks...Gains Weight. Shock Illustrated Photo Fiction
Kefauver was right number two! After being chastised by the Feds for perverting young minds, massively overweight "before it became the national average" EC publisher William Gaines attempted to save his comic empire by putting a little TEXT in the rags along with this prescient cover of a hobo thrill killing. Not good enough Bill…EC Shock lasted only three issues. Still, one can hardly fault a comic book which addresses the psychology of a suburban switch party. There WAS a fourth issue, but it never hit the comic book stands. You can see it HERE in the reprint of COMPLETE EC LIBRARY which was compiled in 2006. Like the originals, it's currently out of stock. Keep checking.
