Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury may be the most re-published science-fiction story of all time. Despite that grand title, you might not have seen this whole story before, so check it out! The guys at EC Comics loved Sound of Thunder so much they adapted it for comics. But they didn’t credit Bradbury at all. Legend has it that Ray saw the story and sent them a nice note about what a great adaptation it was — a diplomatic way to get credit, for sure! Notice Ray’s name appears on this printing.
Collector’s Guide: Originally published in Weird Science-Fantasy #25 by EC Comics. Reprinted in Weird Science Fantasy #3 by Russ Cochran/Gemstone. Reprinted in Ray Bradbury Comics #1, also with a Richard Corben adaptation of the same story; Topps, 1993.
