The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one, he said.
But still they came.
Scarlet Traces is Ian Edginton and Matt "D’Israeli" Brooker's celebrated comic book sequel to H.G. Well's The War of the Worlds - presented in a brand-new omnibus edition, complete with an adaptation of the original novel.
Beginning with a visionary adaptation of the seminal novel, the collection also includes the first of three stories set a decade after the invasion.
In the last years of the Nineteenth Century, England fell to the Martians. The population was devastated, but the Martians were wiped out and Britain survived. A decade later, the British Empire has rebuilt and dominates the globe using the alien technology that brought it to its knees.
When the bodies of several young women are found washed up on the banks of the Thames, Captain Robert Autumn and his former Sergeant-Manjor Archie Currie are drawn into a mystery that leads them from gin palaces to the sinister conspiracy behind the empire’s power!
This volume collects Ian Edginton’s and D’Israeli’s critically acclaimed comic book adaption of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds and the sequel, Scarlet Traces.
