A countryside family faces fear on the day of The War of the Worlds broadcast.


Eric Hobbs • Noel Tuazon
On the day of the historic broadcast of The War of the Worlds by Orson Welles which triggered panic in many places it sounded so real, a family in the countryside fears for its life and also has to deal with strangers and neighbors coming in for help. The tension brings to the surface long suppressed emotions and conflicts and a violent reckoning in a dark stormy night.
"Imagine the original Night of the Living set in the Depression- and without any fleshing-eating ghouls – and you have a sense of what Eric Hobbs and Noel Tuazon’s The Broadcast is about." -Bill Sherman, Pop Culture Gadabout and Blogcritics
"A genuine humdinger of a thriller." –Outhousers
"The characters are memorable, and Tuazon’s wispy artwork, vague and expressive by turns, is perfect for the story." -Brigid Alverson, Robot 6
