  • in A Time Not Unlike Our Own, Two Women Are Among The Last People Left Behind In New York City, Struggling To Survive As The Thermometer Reaches An Unbearable 140°. Almost Overnight, Modern-day Conveniences Have Become Luxuries And Humans Are Pushed To Their Limits. As The Climate Grows More Hostile, Could These Be The Final Days Of Life On Earth?

    one Of Most Ground-breaking Shows In The History Of Television, the Twilight Zone has Become A Permanent Fixture In Pop Culture. This New Graphic Novel Series Re-imagines The Show’s Most Enduring Episodes, In All Their Original Uncut Glory, Originally Written By Rod Serling Himself, And Now Adapted For A New Generation—a Generation That Has Ridden Disney’s Twilight Zone Tower Of Terrortm Ride, Studied Old Episodes In School, Watched The Annual Marathons, And Paid Homage To The Show Through The Many Random Take-offs That Show Up In Movies And Tv Shows Everywhere.


    journey Into A Wondrous Land Whose Boundaries Are That Of Imagination . . . With These Eleven Words, A New Generation Of Readers Are Introduced To A Graphic Adaptation Of One Of Television's Most Insightful—and Often Times Disturbing—programs, The Twilight Zone. Each Volume Is Made Up Of A Story Alternately Introduced Or Summarized In Person By Creator Rod Serling. In the Midnight Sun, Earth's Temperatures Approach 120 Degrees Fahrenheit As Inhabitants Struggle In The Face Of Rolling Blackouts, Panic And Looting, And Lack Of Drinkable Water As A Result Of The Melting Of The Planet's Polar Ice Caps. Norma And Mrs. Bronson, Two Women Living In A Decaying New York City Apartment Complex, Try To Maintain Their Grips On Reality, Survive An Armed Robbery Attempt, And Make Sense Of A Post-apocalyptic Heat Wave, Only To Have The Weather Change In An Instant As The City Is Frozen In An Unending Snow And Ice Storm. These Intriguing Graphic Novellas, Adapted By Kneece Using Serling's Original Uncut Scripts, Have A Similar Style And Tone That Gives Each Installment Continuity Similar To That Of The Original Broadcast. Information About Each Episode's Airdate, Production, And Cast And Crew Is Included As Well. Plots Are Methodical And Gripping, Although The Black-and-white Artwork (which Will Change To Full Color For The Commercial Release) Somewhat Mutes Each Storyline. Point Readers To The Companion Titles the Monsters Are Due On Maple Street And the Odyssey Of Flight 33 For Further Adventures In The Fifth Dimension. Teens Who Know The Twilight Zone Only From Its Haunting Theme Music Will Be Drawn To The Telecast, And Adults Who Enjoyed The Drama Will Waxnostalgic In These Graphic Interpretations Of Serling's Provocative Social Commentary And Suspenseful, If Not Horrific, Storytelling.
