For the Halloween season we thought best to honor the most terrifying moment in literature – Panic Broadcast. The famous reading of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” on public radio by actor Orson Welles sent waves of panic through the public, who thought the broadcast to be live news updates of an impending space invasion.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Panic Broadcast, Tiny Bird Press and Lurk And Destroy created two Welles inspired exclusive prints. See pics below for details.
