In some regards, Wells is a horrible writer. Much of the action takes place offstage and has to be reported to us. Gratuitous coincidences. A weird love/hate relationship with humanity and the future.Since by now the story is old hat, I don't really have anything to say about that. Edginton's graphics do give the material a fresh feeling. The images of devastation bring back a little of the power the work must once have held. I particularly liked the wounded face of our hero for keeping the pain always in my mind.
