Wally Wood drew EC's adaptation of Ray Bradbury's "There Will Come Soft Rains" for Weird Fantasy
17 (January-February 1953). Note Wood's error on page two, panel four: The garage door cannot open or close with the "waiting car" parked midway into the doorframe. (The caption is the same as Bradbury's original paragraph.) In panel five, "After a long wait, the door swung down again"... which would smash the hood of the car. To read Ray Bradbury's original story (first published in the May 6, 1950 issue of Collier's
), go here
. In the Collier's
original, the story takes place on April 28, 1985. Later, the date was changed.
