Big Story ... in a little book?! Jan 4, 2007
I love Wells' classic "War Of The Worlds", and I was interested to see how a modern day horror writer would do a take on it. I am pleased to say that it is well presented in terms of book design, the writing is aimed at a young audience, and is a simplistic take on "War Of The Worlds". I can't honestly say that its great, as the art was probably not as good as it could have been, being that it was done someone who I truely respect. Ted McKeever's art is generally considered rough and disturbing, and what he did on this book had a flat polished feel. Its nice, but not that interesting. Don't expect a novel either ... it captures the important bits of "War Of The Worlds" in paragraphs, but it does feel like a complete story!
