Renegade Game Studios Partnering with EC Comics

Renegade Game Studios has announced a new partnership with William M. Gaines Agent, Inc., the proprietors of EC Comics to bring the worlds and art of influential comics from the 1950s to the tables of fans.
 
With this partnership, puzzle collectors and pop culture fans can look forward to seeing the historically significant and unique art in an upcoming line of puzzles. Among them include cover art from EC Comics’ seminal series Weird Science and Weird Science-Fantasy featuring art from by Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Famers Wally Wood, Al Feldstein, and Frank Frazetta.
 
These culture-defining works of art will be brought to the tables of fans in the form of 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles debuting in Spring 2021. Measuring approximately 26” by 19” when completed, collectors and puzzle enthusiasts will be able to appreciate the art at a scale larger than the original comics, beautifully showcasing the detailed illustrations that helped make the pioneering comics such a cultural landmark.
 
Ahead of the launch, collectors, fans, and puzzle enthusiasts are invited to vote on their favorite comic cover from all of the covers in the series Weird Science (no. 1-22) and Weird Science-Fantasy (no. 23-29) in the Collector’s Choice Survey. The winning comic cover will be printed among the first wave of EC Comics jigsaw puzzles.
 
“We’re beyond excited to see some of EC’s most lurid and fantastical covers transform into table-top puzzles,” said Cathy Gaines Mifsud, daughter of EC Comics publisher William Gaines. “These comics defined an era of science fiction art and we can’t wait to continue to celebrate the boundless imagination of these top creators.”
 
“The Influence of EC’s titles in pop and pulp culture is indelible. We’re thrilled to bring this culturally and societally influential art from a trailblazing comics publisher,” said Scott Gaeta, President and Publisher at Renegade Game Studios. “We also know fans of these remarkable titles will have favorite covers, and we look forward to hearing which covers they want to see on their tables.”
