Average Rating
Pub. Date:

One of the most gripping of H.G. Wells' science-fiction sagas, The Invisible Man is the story of a brilliant young scientist who impetuously experiments upon himself, and then becomes invisible and mad, imprisoned in a nightmare of his own making. A spellbinding and unforgettable fantasy, it also provides a lesson in the calamity that can result when knowledge is used toward a corrupt end. Eisner-Award winner Rick Geary's fanciful artwork captures the tragedy and irony of Wells' fascinating tale.

display_description On a cold day in February, a stranger arrives in the village of Iping. He wears gloves and dark glasses, even inside, and his face is covered in bandages. Soon crimes occur that cannot be explained, and the townspeople realize the unthinkable truth: the strange man is invisible--and he is slowly going mad.
