Animal Fables

    (E.C., 1946-1947)

Face it, fans who think of E.C. do not initially conjure up an image of funny animal titles. But, as the publisher sought to find its niche in its earliest days, it tried a number of genres before striking the successful field of fantastic horror, striking art, and satire.

The series’ primary continuing character was Human Torch imitation Freddy Firefly; other characters included Hector the Inspector and Korky Kangaroo.
