In August Bluewater Productions will release the graphic novel collection of its Flying Saucers vs. The Earth comic book series, adapting the classic 1956 film Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, under its "Ray Harryhausen Presents" banner.  Harryhausen was responsible for the spectacular effects in Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, which include the iconic image of a flying saucer crashing into the Washington Monument.  The 136-page, full color Flying Saucers vs. Earth graphic novel will have a cover price of $14.99. 


Ryan Burton adapted the 1956 film and science fiction cover artist Alan Brooks provided both the covers and the interior art for the comic book series, which has been collected in graphic novel form.  The reason why the title is reversed from that of Fred F. Sears' 1956 movie is that Burton has chosen to tell the story from the point of view of the alien invaders rather than from the viewpoint of the defenders of Earth -- so this graphic novel is not a straight adaptation of the film, but rather a re-imagining of the saga from the aliens' perspective.
