The Lovereading4Kids comment

Martin Sloan steps off the beaten path, looking for redemption on his journey home but steps into the Twilight Zone and a journey of a lifetime.

Brilliantly conceived, the graphic novels in this series capture the TV drama of an iconic and cult classic TV show – The Twilight Zone - from the 1950s. Set in a world that is like our own but has another dimension, each book is a highly dramatic adventure powerfully told in striking visual images matched by a text that has been adapted from Rod Serling’s original scripts – in their entirety.


Twilight Zone: Walking Distance by Mark Kneece, Rod Serling

The stories are compelling and in the visual images they echo the storyboarding of the original television, but offer a fresh interpretation, as seen through the eyes of a new generation of artists. Half a century on, The Twilight Zone remains part of our culture, routinely referenced in print and on television, as it succinctly describes the bizarre and the unexpected.

About the Author

Mark Kneece, Rod Serling

Mark Kneece co-wrote a story in Alien World in 1987 for Pacific Comics and discovered a talent for comics writing. He has written stories for Hellraiser (Marvel / Epic), Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (DC Comics), The Spirit: New Adventures (Kitchen Sink Press) and Tarzan for the syndicated newspaper strip (United Media).

Rod Serling was born in Syracuse, New York, the second of two sons of Esther (née Cooper) and Samuel Lawrence Serling. His brother, Robert J. Serling, later became a novelist. Serling was raised in Binghamton, New York, where he later graduated from Binghamton Central High School. He earned his B.A. in 1950 from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Though brought up in a Jewish family, Serling became a Unitarian Universalist. Serling's family had a summer home on Cayuga Lake, in New York's Finger Lakes region, which inspired the name "Cayuga Productions" for use on Twilight Zone productions.

The first episode of the Twilight Zone was shown in 1959.
