These two stories by Torres were scanned from positive duplicates made of photostatic negatives found in Larry Ivie's files. Before the "Xerox" revolution made black and white copies inexpensive, photostats were the coin of the realm and horded by collectors.
The first story here was done by Torres as sample pages while he was still a student at Hogarth's School of Visual Arts in NYC and eventually saw print. The second one is an example of the many short pieces he drew after EC folded. It was a treat for me to be able to see these pages without color, his strong black and white patterning on full display.
