Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Editor (and adaptor of two pieces) Pomplun searched back to the roots of science fiction for the Martian invaders, aliens and disintegration machines that populate this 17th volume in Eureka's excellent series. Most young readers will recognize the title and the tripods in Wells's "War of the Worlds," but they'll find the original story and time period surprisingly fresh. Realistic watercolor panels are a great match for this fast-moving adaptation. Stanley Weinbaum's seminal, but likely totally unknown, "Martian Odyssey" is a whiz-bang, standout tale of a stranded astronaut's encounters with aliens rendered in heavy-line, Don-Bluth-style art. E.M. Forster's utopian/dystopian society in "The Machine Stops" might remind some of Wall-E save for the lack of a cute robot (and upbeat ending). Not surprisingly, given the age of the source material, some of the futures can seem quaint, such as Hans Christian Andersen's "In a Thousand Years," and the themes weighty, as in Lord Dunsany's "Bureau d'Echange de Maux." However, the varied art and strong story choices are sure to please graphics fans with a taste for tales without tights and masks. (Graphic short stories. 12 & up)

    Six science fiction classics in excellent graphic form

    This is a comic book rendering of six classic stories by top notch authors, including H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. The stories are told with good graphic illustrations by six different artists. It can be read by pre-teens, or anyone older than that, even older adults like me. I was particularly impressed by the art work of Micah Farritor in his rendition of The War of the Worlds. A good stocking stuffer.
