This is movie adaptation perfection! Paul S. Newman does a wonderful job distilling this kooky Roger Corman movie into a wonderfully paced 36 pages. This is the story of a scientist willing to risk everything to increase the light spectrum visible to the human, or something like that (I'm no scientician!). The real treat here is the Frank Thorne art. He does a wonderful job at portraying the 'x-ray effect'. My favourite panel is the 'worm's eye view' of the multiple-level apartment building as seen by Xavier while he is trying to sleep. If you ever see this one for sale on the cheap, I strongly recommend that you pick it up. My thanks for my good friend and fellow lover of all things strange and obscure, Mickey C. for the care package that included this fine book.
