Gr 7 Up-These titles, while remaining faithful to the original screenplays, bring these classic stories to a newer and younger audience who might never have seen the black-and-white television programs. Also, a unique advantage to using Serling's screenplays is that readers will also see glimpses of his vision that were never captured on camera. Deaths-Head Revisited tells the story of a former Nazi commander who returns to his old concentration camp, while The Midnight Sun tells the story of how society falls apart after Earth moves closer to the sun. It includes a scene that was never filmed for budget reasons. The illustrators adeptly capture many of the scenes immortalized on film and translate them into full-color graphic-novel format. Worthwhile purchases.-Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information
