"As an introduction for children to classic works of literature they excelled in bringing classic stories to life with simplified but engaging storylines and captivating illustrations. The images brought colour and vigour to accompany the enduring quality of the stories themselves.
"I can still remember reading the 'Count of Monte Cristo' issue for the first time and being enthralled, then seeking out the full version of Dumas' timeless classic. I personally credit Classics Illustrated with instilling a love of reading and great literature that has remained with me my entire life."

"I would certainly recommend any parent hoping to inspire an interest in the "classics" of literature to consider exposing their children to this excellent version of the story.
"Certainly the art is striking. The cover is simply superb, and Cameron's Tripods are a masterpiece of design."
John Gosling, Writer, on ‘The War of the Worlds'
"Even before I could read, I remember pouring through my brothers' copies of Classics Illustrated, over and over, especially their excellent comic book adaptations of 'Frankenstein', 'The Invisible Man', 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde', 'A Journey to the Centre of the Earth', and 'The War of the Worlds'."
