The Time Machine Part VII
The Time Machine (1895) has been adapted for comic books a number of times. The most famous is Classics Illustrated #133 first published in 1956. A lesser known version is the second issue in the 1976 Marvel Classics Comic series. This is a first rate production - from the cover art by Gil Kane to the very effective story art by Alex Nino. The adaptation by Otto Binder is faithful to the original. Interesting that Kane based his version of the machine on the earlier Lou Cameron one.
