Reading Room 3-D COLOR CLASSICS: TIME MACHINE (Conclusion)

Victorian-era inventor John travels to the future and discovers that, after reaching a pinnacle of scientific development, mankind has deteriorated to two groups of primitives!
Above-ground dwellers are peaceful, but those who lurk below are savage!
The underground humans steal John's time-travel vehicle...and then, one of his new-found friends, a woman named Weena.
Seeking both, the chronic argonaut goes below the surface, where he discovers the hostile cave dwellers, known as "Morlocks", are hyper-sensitive to light.
Finding his machine and the woman, John heads for the surface with her, planning to return for his vehicle...
Note: John says to the Morlocks; "Perhaps one of my distant ancestors will meet you!"
If they're in the future, wouldn't it be one of his descendents?

Reading Room 3-D COLOR CLASSICS: TIME MACHINE (Part 2)

...(note the reference to HG Wells' earlier time travel tale!)
Victorian inventor John travels to the future, where he discovers humans reached a remarkable level of scientific achievement, then apparently lost their knowledge over generations and became gentle primitives!
But not all of them!
When his time-travel vehicle is stolen and taken underground, John pursues the thieves, he discovers some humans had become savage primitives!
Adapted by Peter Stone, with layouts by Neal Adams and finishes by Adams, Rodolfo Damaggio, Andres Klasic, and John Nyberg, this adaptation takes considerable liberties with the original novel.
But, to be fair, almost every adaptation, no matter the media, has made changes, usually due to technical (sfx) or space limitations.

Reading Room 3-D COLOR CLASSICS: TIME MACHINE (Part 1)

Here's a never-reprinted version of the HG Wells tale by Neal Adams...
...from over 20 years ago!
Adapted by Peter Stone, with layouts by Neal Adams and finishes by Adams, Rodolfo Damaggio, Andres Klasic, and John Nyberg, this adaptation takes considerable liberties with the original novel.
But, to be fair, almost every adaptation, no matter the media, has made changes, usually due to technical (sfx) or space limitations.
The book was part of a series of comics given away as part of Wendy's Kid's Meals in 1995!
The books used a full color 3-D process called "ChromaDepth", that used the color spectrum to create a three-dimensional effect with the enclosed glasses, yet left a perfectly-readable (if oddly-colored) comic if the glasses were lost!

Reading Room 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY "Vira the She-Demon" Conclusion

In the prehistoric past, a lone woman, Vira, is granted skills and knowledge by the mysterious Monolith which she uses to manipulate the hostile and less-intelligent men around her to keep herself alive, manipulating their supersitious fears by appearing to be a supernatural being.
Transitioning to the post-2001 world, we encounter astronaut Vera Gentry, assigned to a lonely outpost...
As in the movie and previous issue, the protaganist is "transitioned" to a higher life-form
But what happens when the subject doesn't become a "new seed"...you'll find out next Friday!

Friday Fun 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY "Vira the She-Demon" Part 1

Once more, Clarke and Kubrick's mysterious Monolith becomes a metaphor...
...as Jack (King) Kirby asks the questions only he can answer...in his inimitable style!
It's not clearly indicated how long after the events of the movie this never-reprinted tale from Marvel's 2001: a Space Odyssey #2 (1977) by writer/penciler Jack Kirby and inker Mile Royer takes place.
In the flick, it took months for The Discovery to make it to Jupiter, but astronaut Gentry implies this is almost a second-rate assignment no one wants!
Plus, considering how many lives were lost on the ill-fated Discovery mission, why is she working alone?
But she's still wearing a movie-style spacesuit, so it's probably within 20 years of the movie...
