Geeky Curiosities: The Comic Books of Ed, Edd ‘N’ Eddy

Ed Edd n Eddy Comic Books

Since it aired at the turn of the 21st century, Ed, Edd n Eddy is mostly referred to as a 90s cartoon – a side-splitting animated series created, written and directed by Canadian mastermind Danny Antonucci. Part of the original Cartoon Cartoons series which aired from 1996 to 2003 on Cartoon Network, Ed, Edd n Eddy was an unpretentious, original cartoon which managed to fit as a glove among the numerous wacky animations of the 90s, rivaling even the stupendous Nickelodeon shows.

If you’re able to remember a trio of awesome dudes hanging out in the cul-de-sac of Peach Creek, some crazed Kanker Sisters who are chasing them at all times or a piece of timber known as Plank, then you’ve certainly watched one or more episodes of this true masterpiece!

The Eds are Ed, Edd and Eddy: Ed’s the chicken-loving, paranoid, comic book geek, Double D is the neat freak genius and Eddy is the dimwitted con artist who might just about do anything for 25¢.

Among their countless schemes and trickeries imposed upon the other kids of the cul-de-sac, the Eds did also spend some time doing constructive activities, such as reading a whole bunch of comic books! Throughout the entire six seasons and full TV movie Ed, Edd n Eddy’s Big Picture Show there are plenty of comic book references and flashes, from titles such as The Curse of the Evil Tim to No-Body Man.

Ed doesn’t only think about gravy, chickens and buttered toast and the series focuses to bring out the attraction he and his buds have for graphic novels, both as means of recreational activity and interest. Although Ed’s the character who shows the most interest in comic books, the other two Eds have also been spotted reading some, however Double D seems more the bookworm and, well, Eddy is the Babes Galore type.

In spite of the fact that most of the titles drawing inspiration from the horror genre, Ed doesn’t seem to fully grasp this reality, thus falling prey to paranoia and a series of hallucinations, including vindictive monsters who are ravenous for internal organs or brains. Costing up to 13¢ on average, the comics are accessible and bear a source of dynamic content for episode plotlines.
