Question 535: Don your thinking caps, coz all Wells that ends Well.

In the pic below, are given 2 cultural phenoms in their own right, both from the world of literature. Just ID them both, simple enough.

Note, as much as I would appreciate it, XKCD is not a cultural or literary phenom
YET.

The last panel shows the second literary giant (he's been blanked out)



ANSWER:


1) WAR OF THE WORLD (BY HG WELLS) OR TRIPOD BOOKS
2) DON QUIXOTE, BY CERVANTES





Don Quixote attacking a windmill (not from XKCD)

Simpsons spoof based on War of the Worlds, Where Ipods take over (not that hard to imagine, get the pun?lol)

Nice Question, buster.

Wells' War of the Worlds(easy, considering there are windmills- that move)

Miguel's Don Quixote has been blanked out. He's actually standing on the hill there.
(windmill is the key factor)

The XKCD was for energy conservation.

Nihar.
