Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The text of this revised edition of Wells's lesser-known fiction is impressive but the artwork falls short. Most of the text is abridged or somewhat paraphrased, but the adaptations are extraordinary. The sense of each work is preserved, but each is different in its presentation. The Tempation of Herringay, a work with which many readers might not be familiar, is mostly text with surreal illustrations at the top and bottom of each page. The Star, one of Wells's more recognizable pieces, is almost entirely told through the artwork and is the most impressive of the collection. The black-and-white illustrations do not always add to the text in other works, and some seem a bit too juvenile. The artists and contributors are given short biographies at the end of the volume. Given the artwork in other graphic novels, this one does not compare well. Much of that, however, is due to the lack of color. It is doubtful that reluctant readers would pick this item over other graphic novels. It does fare very well, however, as an introduction to Wells's fiction.
