Bradbury’s classic horror story “The Screaming Woman” adapted for graphic anthology

Richard Chizmar and Legion of Superheroes’ artist Dennis Calero have translated  Ray Bradbury’s “The Screaming Woman” into a graphic story for Chizmar’s anthology Seasons of Terror.  Bradbury’s tale of a young girl, whose insistence that mysterious screams are coming from the woods near her house is dismissed by her parents, has a long history of adaptations. It debuted as a 1948 radio play for Suspense before it became a short story in Today, was anthologized in S is for Space in 1966, and then adapted for Ray Bradbury Theatre in 1986.  Chizmar, who hopes to engage a new generation of readers with classic horror, has paired Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, and Robert McCammon with different illustrators to create a unique visual take for each of the four comics included in the anthology.
The book is available for pre-order now.
