IDW’s Bradbury Tribute

In November three Ray Bradbury themed “Shadow Show” comics were released by IDW Publishing.

Shadow Show #1 offered “By The Silver Water of Lake Champlain,” written by Joe Hill (Locke & Key) and adapted by Jason Ciaramella (The Cape) with art by Charles Paul Wilson III (Wraith) and cover by Locke & Key co-creator Gabriel Rodriquez.

The second issue featured “The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury,” written by Neil Gaiman with art by Maria Fröhlich, “which peers into the mind of a man who sifts through his own memories in an attempt to recover the name of a famous sci-fi author.” In the other story, Audrey Niffenegger and Eddie Campbell combined talents on “Backward in Seville.”

The third Shadow Show contained “Weariness” by the inestimable Harlan Ellison, which gives us a look at the end of the universe as we know it, and “Live Forever!” by Bradbury biographer Sam Weller and Mark Sexton, where Ray Bradbury himself enters the story.
