List of Entertaining Comics publications

"EC Comics" was a major publisher of comic books in the 1940s and 1950s. The letters EC stood for both Entertaining Comics and the earlier Educational Comics. EC's "Pre-Trend" titles are those published by Max Gaines and his son William Gaines, who took over the family business after his father's death in 1947. In 1950, EC found success with their "New Trend". The "New Direction" group was a response to the Comics Code Authority. "Picto-Fiction" was a short-lived line of heavily illustrated short story magazines.
