Free fiction: Comic book adaptations of 3 important stories

In four issues of comic book anthology series Starstream, at Crosseyed Cyclops. [via QuasarDragon]

Among the lot are:
  1. John W Campbell, Jr's "Who Goes There?": This already has several versions online - at least one comic version, original text, some text scans, as well as a movie adaptation.
  2. Poul Anderson's "Call me Joe".
  3. Theodore Sturgeon's "Microcosmic God": With the exception of fix-up novel "More Than Human" (& its original short story, "Baby is Three"), this is probably the best known story of Sturgeon.
These 3 are among the best of science fiction. At least their original texts were, in my book anyway.
