About the Author

Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) wrote the science fiction classics The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The War of the Worlds, and has often been heralded as a father of modern science fiction. Rick Geary is one of the most celebrated and widely recognized artists working in comics today. He started his career at The National Lampoon where he drew for 13 years. His graphic novels include adaptations for CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED and the nine-volume series A TREASURY OF VICTORIAN MURDER for NBM Publishing. A new series A TREASURY OF 20th CENTURY MURDER began in 2008 with "The Lindbergh Child" and was followed by 2009's "The Famous Players" and 2010's "The Ax-Man of New Orleans," all of which were Junior Library Guild selections. The series has sold over 120,000 copies. He lives and works in Carrizozo, New Mexico. Rick Geary is one of the most celebrated and widely recognized artists working in comics today.

Reviews

Two of Wells's masterpieces get the red-carpet treatment here in these luxurious editions. Along with annotated texts, they feature scholarly introductions and appendixes, bibliographies, illustrations, and indexes. Though they are perhaps a tad pricey for most public libraries, academic collections supporting English departments should definitely invest in these volumes.

"A gripping version of this pioneering work of science fiction. The narrative is quick paced and absorbing and the artwork stunningly lush." --School Library Journal

"A gripping version of this pioneering work of science fiction. The narrative is quick paced and absorbing and the artwork stunningly lush."-School Library Journal

Gr 5-9-For readers wanting a small shiver down their spines, these books will suffice. Stoker's Dracula is succinct and well edited. The art is stale and tame and might titillate, but it won't produce any nightmares. The adaptation in Dorian Gray can be clunky at times but it covers the main points of the story. The beautiful and youthful Dorian Gray is never very attractive in the illustrations, but the decaying painting will appropriately disgust young readers. The story in The Invisible Man is heavily edited, and the action is crammed into a few pages, but the scenes in which the Invisible Man is on the loose are intense. The illustrations are fairly detailed and include some graphic scenes of blood and a nearly naked Invisible Man. All three books include information about the authors and a glossary. There are better adaptations of these novels available, but these titles provide slim and chilling reads that give a taste of the actual stories for reluctant readers.-Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
