Details

The ground-breaking series is collected in the first of two volumes. Starting with their visionary adaptation of the original novel, this includes the first of three sequel stories set a decade after the Martian invasion. When the bodies of young women are found washed up on the banks of the Thames, Captain Robert Autumn, retired solider and adventurer, and his former Sergeant-Major Archie Currie are drawn into a mystery that leads them to the corridors of power and the Martian King!

Great Britain has cannibalized Martian technology and now Hansom cabs scuttle along on multi-limbed crab legs, and the Martian heat-ray has become the weapon with which the British Empire dominates the world. Very retro/steam punk in appearance, sinced this all takes place in the late 1890s in the world of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells' imaginations.

First published in Judge Dredd Magazine and then first collected by Dark Horse in 2002-2006. New 2016 introduction by Matt Brooker (D'Israeli).
