When Jack Davis took up his pen for EC Comics, he imbued his stories with a playful sense of (gallows) humour that made his innocent victims more eye-poppingly terrified, his axe-murders more gleefully gruesome, and his revenge-seeking corpses more morbidly motivated than any other EC artist.

But the standout story has to be 'Foul Play,' the most infamous of all EC horror stories, in which a baseball team takes revenge on a murderous rival player by, um (spoiler alert), 'repurposing' various parts of his anatomy for one final blood-spattered, organ-scattered inni
