4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too, 11 Mar 2009

This review is from: The Monsters are Due on Maple Street (The Twilight Zone) (Paperback)
Maple Street is quiet on a lazy, Saturday afternoon. Neighbors are chatting, mowing lawns, and watching their children play in the street. It is almost like the calm before the storm.

A brilliant flash of light startles the unsuspecting group. Many believe it to be a meteor falling from the heavens. The residents stop what they are doing, and watch as it trails across the sky. Seconds later, every electronic device goes dark. The people find that their cars won't start and all phones have lost a dial tone. Worry and fear take hold of these people.

Tommy, a neighborhood kid, explains that the monsters are coming for them. They cut the power to make sure that no one will leave. The residents of Maple Street begin to wonder who "they" really are. Accusations begin to fly, and, inevitably, mob mentality takes over.

What is extremely eerie about the Maple Street script is that it is not as far-fetched as other Twilight Zone ideas. It is prejudice that invades this small community and ultimately destroys it. I think that this graphic novel may hit home with many teens because of the content. This scenario is very real, and that makes it even more frightening.

Another great Twilight Zone adaptation by Mark Kneece!
