H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds is a comic adaptation of H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds by Ian Edginton and D'Israeli. The same team earlier created the comic Scarlet Traces, and several characters from it can be seen in this series, as well as this series reusing the designs of the Martians and their machines.

In July 2006, Pendragon Pictures announced in a press release that the comic possessed visual similarities to Pendragon's film H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. Pendragon set up a website poll showing image comparisons. In April 2008, the company publicly announced the legal settlement of the matter, stating it "apologizes for any misconception its press release or later internet poll may have caused."[1][2]


It has been released as a webcomic[3] and as a graphic novel:
