Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A graphic anthology of tales featuring collaborations between established writers and artists and debut contributors, The Lovecraft Anthology showcases Lovecrafts talent for the macabre. From the insidious mutations of “The Shadow over Innsmouth” to the mindbending threat of “The Call of Cthulhu,” this collection explores themes of insanity, inherited guilt, and arcane ritual to startling effect.

Praise for The Lovecraft Anthology: Volume I:

"It's a rich grab bag that brings the eerie and unspeakable to vivid graphic life, and both the newcomer and the seasoned Lovecraft fan will not be disappointed." —Publishers Weekly

"When a graphic novel comes along representing some of Lovecrafts greatest tales, it has a lot to live up to. Im happy to say that the graphic novel compilation The Lovecraft Anthology, Vol. 1 provides the goods." —GeekDad.com

The Lovecraft Anthology is a wonderful adaptation and tribute to Lovecraft, and you can tell Lockwood is a fan of these stories.” —Kirkus Reviews online

“For the reader who wants to find out what Lovecraft is all about . . . The Lovecraft Anthology is a fitting primer.” —Campus Circle.com

Review:

"Lovecraft's pulp horrors have long proved a trying prospect for those who adapt them into any visual medium, due to the author's horrific visions being often nebulously defined. His madness-inducing elder gods, their nightmarish half-human offspring and all manner of inhuman, tentacled wigglies received descriptions allowing the imagination to do the heavy lifting, which was not a bad idea since no amount of storytelling can come up with anything as horrific as what an individual reader's mind can conceive. The other stumbling block for adapters is Lovecraft's 'antique' turn of phrase that is often lost in translation. This anthology, however, gets everything right and matches eight capable writers (among them Ian Edginton and Dan Lockwood) with seven very imaginative artists (Disraeli, INJ Collard) all of whom do the stories justice. The tales adapted are seven of Lovecraft's best, including 'The Call of Thulium,' 'The Munich Horror,' The Shadow over Inns Mouth,' each illustrated in styles running the gamut from the grotesque to the expressionistic and even the cartoony. It's a rich grab bag that brings the eerie and unspeakable to vivid graphic life, and both the newcomer and the seasoned Lovecraft fan will not be disappointed."
