Groove's Faves: "The Day After the Martians Came!" by Pohl, Conway, and Reese

How 'bout another sci-fi shocker, Groove-ophiles? This is a goodie, "The Day After the Martians Came!" adapted by Gerry Conway and Ralph Reese from Frederick Pohl's immortal short story. This classic first appeared in Marvel's World's Unknown #1 (February 1973). Can you dig it?


  1. That newscaster on page 1, panel 2 (and also page 2) bore a more than passing resemblance to Harlan Ellison. Hmmmm.....

  2. I've always loved this story in the original form but I never read this version before, and it's a real success. Thank you for posting it!
