War of the Worlds

Perhaps in anticipation of Spielberg’s coming adaptation (or perhaps not—who’s to say? It’s probably more of a tie-in to their own Scarlet Traces series…), the good folks at Dark Horse Comics have begun publishing an a serial eComic adaptation of H.G. Wells’s classic, The War of the Worlds. The first installment is online, and more pages will be added each week. Here’s the comic, if you’d like to take a look.

Also, for your classic-alien-invasion listening pleasure, you can hear Orson Welles’s infamous radio theater adaptation of the story at The Mercury Theater on the Air web site, in either RealAudio or mp3 format.
