2009-08-01 00:57:20 guydiborneo Bio Artist for the renowned EC Comics line of the 1950s, icluding The Crypt of Terror, The Vault of Horror,The Haunt of Fear, Crime SuspenStories and Two-Fisted Tales. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2005. Craig also was the writer responsible for the stories hosted by the Vault Keeper. In addition he illustrated the horror host in the framing sequences of stories by other EC artists. His most notable work comes from the lead stories in The Vault of Horror and Crime SuspensStories. Comic Book writer Pierce Askegren sums up Craigs talents: "Craig was a meticulous craftsman and not a fast worker, but his stories are regarded as some of the best ever in comics. His art was relatively low-key and restrained, effectively staged and featured impeccable draftsmanship. The scripts he wrote tended to be literate and cerebral, and generally relied on solid construction and implacable internal logic, rather than on contrived snap endings. His horror work made more use of psychology and mood than of the supernatural, and his crime comics owned more to James M. Cain and Cornell Woolrich than to gangster movies". # ^ The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America's SF/F & Publishing News (Sept. 21, 2001): Obituary Artist for the renowned EC Comics line of the 1950s, including The Crypt of Terror, The Vault of Horror,The Haunt of Fear, Crime SuspenStories and Two-Fisted Tales.
