IDW founder and Diablo House writer/co-creator Ted Adams joins Locke & Key artist/co-creator Gabriel Rodr guez to present an all-new adaptation of H.G. Wells' classic science fiction novel. As relevant today as when Wells wrote it in 1896, The Island of Doctor Moreau addresses the question all scientists should ask themselves: "Just because we can do something, does that mean we should?" This bold adaptation gives us a new protagonist in the form of Ellen Prendick, whose point of view shines a new light upon the horrific events on the cursed island, providing unique insights into one of the world's favorite stories.

    GWW - Deron Generally Aug 7, 2019

    There are moments I enjoyed, but they were all visual. Other than the beautiful and impressive visuals provided by Gabriel Rodriguez, there is not much else to this interpretation to sustain the reader's interest. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Aug 8, 2019

    A somewhat faithful script is rushed, greatly shortened, unfortunately losing a lot of the story's original power, but gorgeously designed artwork honors the world that H.G. Wells created 123 years ago. Read Full Review
