Between 1951 and 1954, EC Comics adapted 28 classic Ray Bradbury stories into comics form, scripted by Al Feldstein and interpreted and illustrated by all of EC’s top artists: Johnny Craig, Reed Crandall, Jack Davis, Will Elder, George Evans, Frank Frazetta, Graham Ingels, Jack Kamen, Bernard Krigstein, Joe Orlando, John Severin, Angelo Torres, Al Williamson, and Wallace Wood. This fall Fantagraphics will publish Home to Stay!: The Complete Ray Bradbury EC Stories, featuring all 28 stories alongside the stunning art. A special companion to their New York Times best-selling classic reprint series, Fantagraphics’ latest collection features all the Ray Bradbury stories adapted by EC Comics—including the unauthorized ones!—for the first time in one volume.
Highlights in this singular volume include:
- “Home to Stay”— a clever combination of two Bradbury science fiction stories that Bradbury himself proclaimed topped his originals (available in no other form or medium), masterfully woven together by Al Feldstein and Wallace Wood.
- “A Sound of Thunder” — the classic time-travel-gone-wrong story brilliantly illustrated by Al Williamson and Angelo Torres.
- “Touch and Go” — an obsessive psychological thriller tautly executed by Johnny Craig.
And many more, including “The Million Year Picnic” (Elder), “I, Rocket” (Williamson and Frazetta), “Zero Hour” (Kamen), “Mars Is Heaven” (Wood), and “There Will Come Soft Rains…” (Wood). Plus three bonus stories inspired by other Bradbury tales!
With black-and-white illustrations throughout, Home to Stay!: The Complete Ray Bradbury EC Stories is a superb, sumptuous showcase for these classic comic book masterpieces that have never before been collected together in one volume, reproduced in generously oversized coffee table dimension.
