Description


What would you do if you could travel in time?

An intrepid adventurer, known simply as the Time Traveller, meets his friends for dinner one night. During the conversation, he baffles them with his wild ideas about moving forwards or backwards in time. His claims are met with disbelief. Even when he proves his theory with a real-life experiment, his associates simply claim that he is a trickster - a magician. Yet, a week later, he enthralls his acquaintances yet again. He tells a story so unbelievable that it can't be true... or can it?

The Time Traveller's tale tells of our courageous explorer's discoveries in another time. Does he find intelligence and technology beyond his wildest dreams? Or is the world filled with dreaded monsters? There's only one way to find out...

About the Author


Herbert George Wells's (1866-1946) career as an author was fostered by a childhood mishap. He broke his leg and spent his convalescence reading every book he could find. Wells earned a scholarship at the Norman School of Science in London. Wells's ""science fiction"" (although he never called it such) was influenced by his interest in biology. H. G. Wells gained fame with his first novel, ""The Time Machine (1895)."" He followed this with ""The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), "" and ""The War Of The Worlds (1898).""



Praise For…


"Kudos to Campfire for such a fun effort with such a fun story. With [48] other titles hitting the market over the next two years, distribution through Random House, and brilliant art in each based on the previews I've seen, I expect Campfire to become a major player in the graphic novel market."

— Bucky Carter, EN/SANE World 


"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)
