I've just discovered an exceptional illustrated rendition of H.G.Well's War Of The Worlds. This is a professional piece of work from the Darkhorse website, was formerly released as a graphic novel, and is probably one of the worst-kept secrets on the internet. (Why am I always last to know?) The story was adapted and abridged by (none other than) Ian Edginton, and the artwork is by (again, none other than) D'Israeli, both of whom collaborated on 2000AD's brilliant series Leviathan.
As you would expect, much of Well's original text remains intact, and the Edginton/D'Israeli combination just works so well. If you've not read it before, it's worth reading.
"No one would have believed that in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's ..."
You can almost hear Richard Burton's voice speaking the narrative.
