Francesco Francavilla's Kool Tributes to Ray Bradbury!

...comparing it to the published artwork from the story's first appearance in 1943's Weird Tales!
and a second page with art portraying a Bradbury tale adapted on the original Twilight Zone, plus a famous movie based on a Bradbury plot written for the screen (not adapted from a previously-published story)...
The unused alien makeup concept from this movie was used as the Metaluna Mutant in This Island Earth!
Bradbury's original plot for this film, along with several alternative versions, was finally published in the now hard-to-find book It Came from Outer Space from Gauntlet Press in 2004!
Copies go for anywhere from $90-$300 each (and that was before Bradbury passed away)!
