Description


Toward the end of the nineteenth century, several newspapers in England carried a small account of the discovery of a mass of flaming gas, chiefly hydrogen, originating on the planet Mars and moving with enormous speed toward the Earth. The news item, however, was so insignificant, that I, as well as the rest of the world ignored what proved to be one of the gravest dangers that ever threatened the human race... Well's science fiction of the Martian invasion, told through the eyes of an ordinary man.

Classics Illustrated tells this wonderful tale in colorful comic strip form, offering an excellent introduction for younger readers. This edition also includes a biography of H. G. Wells, theme discussions and study questions, which can be used both in the classroom or at home to further engage the reader in the story.

The Classics Illustrated comic book series began life in 1941 with its first issue, Alexandre Dumas' "The Three Musketeers," and has since included over 200 classic tales released around the world. This new CCS Books edition is specifically tailored to engage and educate young readers with some of the greatest works ever written, while still thrilling older readers who have loving memories of this series of old. Each book contains dedicated theme discussions and study questions to further develop the reader's understanding and enjoyment of the work at hand.
