Highly Recommended. By Dobbs. Art by Vicente Cifuentes. Death comes from the sky in this thrilling War of the Worlds graphic novel adaptation, nicely different from the other adaptions (and the recent film). Set firmly in Victorian England. Projectiles from the Red Planet begin to rain down on Earth. From the extraterrestrial capsules a tripod emerges, an immense machine of death that is soon joined by many others, with the sole intention of exterminating all life on Earth. Even knowing the story well, I found this entertaining and very, very handsomely drawn. Translated from the French.
