|Gil Kane and Dave Cockrum|
In 1976 Marvel Comics was publishing a number of new adaptations of a host of classic tales and soon enough War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells was picked to be a part of the run. Dave Cockrum apparently was given the nod to design the tripods for this one though the story itself was written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Yong Montano and Dino Castrillo, two of the reliable cadre of Philipino artists who powered through Bronze Age comics.
Below is a glimpse of two of the better splash pages.
Here's a nice peek at Dave Cockrum's own work and his design for the Martians and their awesome war machines.
Marvel adapted three other Wells stories.
