The Last Question
« on: January 13, 2016, 03:22:56 AM »
I didn't know about the story or much about the author, so this illustration was completely new for me. It's a LOT to digest, so I'm not really ready to comment yet. It's also a lengthy read, and has a scrolling format I don't want to break up by embedding each image, so will just link to the imgur.

That's a very good comic adaptation of the story "The Last Question", by Isaac Asimov. He's considered one of the great giants of the science fiction field. The story was first published in 1956, and is reportedly the author's favorite of all of the stories that he's written, which must number in the thousands. Asimov was known for being incredibly prolific.

The plain text version of the story can be found here:

That was awesome. I read the text a few years ago and this is a great adaptation. Thanks for sharing :D

Asimov is my favorite Science fiction author, and this story, along with Nightfall, are my favorites of his short work.
