Comic Book Hall-of-Famer Al Feldstein Creative Adviser On "Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines"

Press release from: EMO Films, LLC

Al Feldstein, renowned as the creative brain trust behind the legendary E.C. line of comic books, has signed on as Creative Adviser in Joel Eisenberg and John Landis' upcoming feature film, "Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines."
Feldstein, who started with E.C. publisher William M. Gaines as an artist, ultimately wrote and edited most of their titles, including “Tales From The Crypt.” In later years, he became editor of “Mad.”
Says Feldstein, "I am truly enthusiastic to be associated with ‘Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines’ as the film's creative adviser. This film will be about the most exciting editorial and artistic creative period in comic book history, which was then followed by the most devastating, self-destructive and self-castrating period in its history. As E.C.'s major creative force, I am truly hopeful and optimistic that, finally, the whole truth will be told."
The biographical film, written by Eisenberg, will revolve around the banding together of an anti-establishment group of comic book creators, led by a reluctant Gaines and his cohort Feldstein, as they produce their controversial, yet hugely popular, line of comic books. Their notorious titles later led Gaines to voluntarily face Senate subcommittee hearings in defense of his industry, which was widely condemned for perpetuating juvenile delinquency.
