taintthemeat.pngWith Free Comic Book Day occurring this Saturday, I took a look at our graphic library  collection (which is all over the place; fiction, humor, young adult, etc.) and remembered this recent collection of great horror comic stories by the terrific artist Jack Davis. 

'Tain't The Meat...It's The Humanity And Other Stories Illustrated By Jack Davis is a collection of several  stories the artist illustrated for EC Comics' Tales From The Crypt magazine between 1951-55.
