Dark Horse Comics is publishing a web comic of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds. Its an abridged adaptation of the classic story, with a new chapter released every Friday. Chapter 1 is available now.
Among the other interesting items on the site:
- Desktop backgrounds of the artwork.
- Links to DH comics that continue the story after the Martians’ invasion fails as the British invade the Red Planet.
- A link to a musical version of the story.
All very cool, and just in time to refamiliarize yourself with the original story before the Spielberg/Cruise duo production arrives in theaters, which I admit, I’m kinda looking forward to seeing.
