London, England.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, the most significant event in human history has come to pass. Contact from an alien planet has been achieved. Rocket capsules fired from the surface of Mars have crashed into the southern English countryside.

But what should be a moment of scientific curiosity and wonderful first contact between two alien worlds turns instead into disaster. The annihilative weapons of the Martians leave no doubt whatsoever about the nature of the alien contact -an outright invasion of Earth.

In the midst of the chaos and devastation, one man makes a desperate attempt to save himself and make his way back to his family. Follow his account of the incredible events he encounters in Campfire's vivid adaptation of H G Wells’ masterpiece, The War of the Worlds.

“…a fantastic overview of this early sci-fi classic which delivers Wells’ warning that mankind should not presume that because it enjoys a place at the top of the food chain, that it may not always be that way.”— John Tompkins, Sweet Union ‘Toonists

“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature.”– Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
