The Earthmen came by the handful, then the hundreds, then the millions. They swept aside the majestic, dying Martian civilization to build their homes, shopping malls, and cities. Mars began as a place of boundless hopes and dreams, a planet to replace an Earth sinking into waste and war. It became a canvas for mankind's follies and darkest desires. Ultimately, the Earthmen who came to conquer the red-gold planet awoke to discover themselves conquered by Mars. Lulled by its ancient enchantments, the Earthmen learned, at terrible cost, to overcome their own humanity. Rendered in ... full-color art by Dennis Calero, Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles: The Authorized Adaptation graphically translates fourteen of Bradbury's famous interconnected science-fiction stories.

I enjoyed the collection of stories by Ray Bradbury, but I didn't like this adaptation as much. The art was very odd. The artist obviously has talent but he seemed to deliberately make bizarre, ugly, inconsistent drawings. Maybe I just didn't understand the meaning behind his choices. If you're interested in the Martian Chronicles, just read the original.

They made a Mini series out of "The Martian Chronicles" in 1980. I was all excited to watch it after seeing the commercials. That didn't last long. As a Kid I found it very disappointing. It was hard to follow and very slow. As an Adult I found the graphic novel was not much of an Improvement.
