Weird Science (Gladstone)

    (Gladstone, 1990-1991)
1990, 1980, 1977 by William M. Gaines, Agent, 1953 by Fables Publishing Co., Inc. 1950 by I.C. Publishing Co., Inc.

In 1990, Gladstone Publishing began its run of Weird Science, reprinting stories from the great EC science fiction comics of the 1950s. The stories in this new Weird Science series actually came not just from the original Weird Science series, but also from Weird Fantasy (its predecessor). Generally, two original issues were paired to form one giant-size reprint issue of the new series.

The stories were first rate science fiction, including adaptations by Ray Bradbury, and art by the likes of Al Williamson and Wally Wood. Unfortunately, the Gladstone reprints did not last long enough to cover the entire series, and in fact ran just four issues. Years later, Russ Cochran Presents (RCP) would be far more successful in bringing these great stories back to younger readers with its own line of EC reprints.
