    This book is a mostly entertaining illustrated collection of HG Wells’ classic stories, presented by a variety of comics artists. One line in “The Invisible Man” was especially memorable to me. After overhearing his tenant’s experiments to make a cat invisible, a landlord blusters: “The laws of this country against vivisection are very severe—I might be liable! What is it you are doing in here?” If only.

    H.G. Wells' books and stories are classics. However, they are a bit hard to read at times. Maybe it's the archaic, Victorian writing style. This graphic novel uses the complete stories ("The War of the Wars", "The Invisible Man" and others) and then adds comic-book illustrations to add spice to the story. Speaking as a librarian, I would recommend this one in every middle and high school library. H.G. Wells' books and stories are classics. However, they are a bit hard to read at times.

    I really enjoyed reading this. H.G. Wells has a way with words that moves the story along well and paints pictures in my mind. I really liked The Man with a Nose and the Man Who Could Work Miracles.

    I'm a great fan of H.G. Wells having read a huge old tome entitled the "Complete Novels and Short Stories of ..." when I was a young teen. I've re-read various titles over the years but it's been some time since I read any of the novels so this was great fun to revisit two of them. This anthology starts and ends with nice long adaptations of novels, "The Invisible Man" and "The Time Machine" respectively.

This anthology starts and ends with nice long adaptations of novels, "The Invisible Man" and "The Time Machine" respectively. Both are very well done and since they are relatively short novels to begin with are perfect for graphic adaptation. A unique feature in the middle of the book was a representation of Orson Welles' radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds". This was an entertaining look at both H.G.'s story and a strange piece of history that makes me want to actually hear that broadcast for myself. The rest of the book is filled with several not so well known short stories that show another side of Wells' writing featuring the ghost and paranormal. I loved most of the art and as usual the artist matches the style of the story. My favourite of the lot was the two novels and my favourite of the short stories was "The Inexperienced Ghost" with lovely era-appropriate illustrations by Rich Tommaso. This is one of my favourites in the Graphic Classics series. This edition, unfortunately, is currently out of print, but according to the publisher's website a third edition is in the works for publication in Feb, 2014.

    This was a fun way to get aquainted with H.G. Wells. I read a kid's version of the Time Machine growing up, but that's really all the exposure to the man that I've had. Ranking books like this is especially difficult because there are eight different stories with an added diminsion for the vastly different art. I'm not sure I can list a favorite from the book... I'll add the I liked some of the trivia about Wells found in the back of the book, "... Their seminal influence in the field is challenged This was a fun way to get aquainted with H.G. Wells.

Their seminal influence in the field is challenged only by that of the French fantasist Jules Verne, who Wells claimed, 'can't write himself out of a paper sack.'"

    This gave me a newfound appreciation for The Time Machine. The art was creepy and heightened the impact of the contrast between the morlocks and the eloi. There was some seriously good commentary on comfort and pleasure versus being farmed. But you're ok stopping after the first story. I won't think any less of you.
