“I would certainly recommend any parent hoping to inspire an interest in the ‘classics’ of literature to consider exposing their children to this excellent version of the story. Certainly the art is striking. The cover is simply superb, and Cameron's Tripods are a masterpiece of design” - John Gosling - writer
War of the Worlds - Classics Illustrated by H G Wells
Published September 2008 by Classic Comic Store. All artwork re-coloured and covers digitally enhanced. Perfect Bound issues - superb new copies of the greatest comic artwork.
What Authors think of these Classics
I like these illustrated Children's Classics. I'm a great fan of comics and the comic strip and I think these books offer a good way for young readers to get into some of the greatest stories ever told. My three-year old was particularly keen on the Goldilocks one and has asked for it again and again! Michael Rosen (Children's Laureate)
"My son Jack didn't like English at high school so I bought him a lot of comic versions of classic books such as Jekyll And Hyde, Kidnapped and Macbeth - now he wants to go to see the Shakespeare play. It's a great way to get people to read. The problem is that there just aren't enough comics out there any more." Ian Rankin – author
"Even before I could read, I remember pouring through my brothers' copies of Classics Illustrated, over and over, especially their excellent comic book adaptations of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Journey to the Centre of the Earth, and War of the Worlds." Martin Powell – Author
Comics - a great way for new and reluctant readers to enjoy the classics
"It's exciting to now see people well respected in education advocating comics in schools. As an English teacher and huge comic fan, I've often tried to convince colleagues of the power of comics as worthy texts" Katie Barrowman – teacher
"If you’re old enough to remember the Classics Illustrated comic books, you’ll be glad to know that they’re back. They promise to encourage readers to get into, and through, the classics."
Dodie Ownes -- School Library Journal
"Comics are the most exciting medium today for teachers who want to grab their students' attention without sacrificing depth, and for librarians who are intrigued by this art form and its possibilities for encouraging new readers." Splat!
