Product Description

One of H.G. Wells’s most visionary tales, “The Island of Dr. Moreau” relates the disturbing tale of Pendrick, a shipwrecked naturalist who unwittingly discovers a horrific scientific and social experiment that is creating a mutant race of hideous creatures, half-human and half-beast. Terrifying and spellbinding, Wells’ masterpiece warns of the catastrophe that could result when man recklessly tampers with nature. Eric Vincent’s artwork vividly summons up the nightmarish life in Dr. Moreau’s tortured world.
