EXCLUSIVE Fantagraphics Preview: Home to Stay!: The Complete Ray Bradbury EC Stories

A superb, sumptuous showcase for these classic comic book masterpieces that have never before been collected together in one volume.

A special companion to our New York Times best-selling classic reprint series, this collection features all the Ray Bradbury stories adapted by EC Comics (including the unauthorized ones!) for the first time in one volume.

During a golden moment in the early 1950s, EC Comics lovingly adapted 25 classic Ray Bradbury stories into comics form, scripted by Al Feldstein and brilliantly interpreted and illuminated by all of EC’s top artists: Johnny Craig, Reed Crandall, Jack Davis, Will Elder, George Evans, Frank Frazetta, Graham Ingels, Jack Kamen, Roy Krenkel, Bernard Krigstein, Joe Orlando, John Severin, Angelo Torres, Al Williamson, and Wallace Wood. This special companion collection to our EC Comics Library series features all 25 official adaptations plus an additional ten related stories with stunning art reproduced in generously oversized coffee table dimensions!
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 a cornucopia of bonus features, including introductions and commentary by Greg Bear, Ted White, Dr. Benjamin Saunders, Bill Mason, and Thommy Burns; a wry reminiscence by Ray himself; and two full-color paintings by Frank Frazetta.
