I also spotted this story via Newsarama about Pendragon Pics making some hullabaloo over Dark Horse's graphic novel version of War of the Worlds being similar to some of their movie shots - looks like either a lot of nonsense or alternatively an attempt to pick up some coverage to me: http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/?p=1294.

Perhaps Jeff Wayne should clobber the lot of them!"
