Description

Joe Orlando was a mainstay at EC, especially on science fiction, and this collects 23 of his best sf stories. All of them, most scripted by Al Feldstein, serve up classic O. Henry-style endings, such as â oeI, Robot, ⠝ and â oeFallen Idol.⠝ The title story is one of ECâ (TM)s most famous, with its blunt anti-racism message. When it was printed during the era of the Comics Code, publisher Bill Gaines and Feldstein had to fight to keep the storyâ (TM)s final panel â oereveal⠝ (and thus its whole point) intact. It was a Pyrrhic victory, however, as â oeJudgment Day⠝ became the last story in the last comic book EC published. This volume also features two of Orlandoâ (TM)s outstanding adaptations of classic Ray Bradbury science fiction stories: â oeThe Long Year⠝ and â oeOutcast of the Stars.⠝ Also included are all of ECâ (TM)s â oeAdam Link⠝ adaptations, a series which was later also adapted for The Outer Limits TV show and featured Leonard Nimoy.

Review quote

...Judgment Day is an outstanding collection and a genuinely thrilling addition to this fine, fine series. Fans of science fiction, or comics, or both, would do well to pick up this volume. ... Be warned, though: these compilations are habit-forming. It s unlikely that just one volume will satisfy. --David Maine"
