The War of the Worlds
The Graphic Novel
London, England. At the dawn of the twentieth century, the most significant event in human history has come to pass. Contact from an alien planet has been achieved. Rocket capsules fired from the surface of Mars have crashed into the southern English countryside. But what should be a moment of scientific curiosity and wonderful first contact between two alien worlds turns instead into disaster. The annihilative weapons of the Martians leave no doubt whatsoever about the nature of the alien contact -an outright invasion of Earth. In the midst of the chaos and devastation, one man makes a desperate attempt to save himself and make his way back to his family. Follow his account of the incredible events he encounters in Campfire's vivid adaptation of H G Wells's masterpiece, The War of the Worlds.
The three laws of Robotics: 1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm 2) A robot must obey orders givein to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future--a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete. Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world--all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asmiov's trademark. From the Hardcover edition.
