June, 1898: A strange cylinder lands in the little town of Woking, a suburb of Greater London. Robert Ingram, a philosopher, witnesses extraterrestial life stepping out of the vehicles, building towering and walking tripod machines that destroy everything in it‘s path. The military forces of the strongest nation on earth are defenseless against them: heat rays, and poisonous gas are the answer to any means of trying to save the life in rural Britain and in the cities. The people flee, and so does Robert, trying to get back to his wife that he lost in the ‘massacre of mankind‘.
A graphic novel adaption seriously faithful to the famous H.G. Wells novella.
