Itand#8217;s a perfect beach day, or so thought the family, young couple, a few tourists, and a refugee who all end up in the same secluded, idyllic cove filled with rock pools and sandy shore, encircled by green, densely vegetated cliffs.

But this utopia hides a dark secret.

First there is the dead body of a woman found floating in the crystal-clear water.

Then there is the odd fact that all the children are aging rapidly. Soon everybody is growing olderand#151;every half hourand#151;and there doesnand#8217;t seem to be any way out of the cove. Levyand#8217;s dramatic storytelling works seamlessly with Peetersand#8217;s sinister art to create a profoundly disturbing and fantastical mystery.

Praise for Sandcastle:

and#147;Begins like a murder mystery, continues like an episode of The Twilight Zone, and finishes with a kind of existentialism that wouldnand#8217;t be out of place in a Von Trier film.and#8221; and#151;Publishers Weekly, starred review

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."

Synopsis:

 
In 1908, Nathaniel Wingate Peaslee experiences an unfortunate fainting spell. Five years later, he finally returns to his senses, but has no recollection of these lost years of his life. As he attempts to discover what happened during this time, he becomes increasingly tormented by vivid, disturbing dreams—dreams that will lead him on a journey through space and time to unlock the secrets of his past and of the universe.

Praise for The Shadow Out of Time:

“A great way for a novice reader to discover the work of H. P. Lovecraft.” —New York Journal of Books

“Watching Culbards fussy gents go stark raving nuts is always a blast, and this one may be his best yet.” —Booklist

 

Synopsis:

The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambersandrsquo;s classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. Itandrsquo;s a book that draws readers in with an irresistible yet innocent opening act, then drives them insane with the poisonous words of Act 2. Itandrsquo;s a book that cannot be suppressed, spreading like a disease from city to city, continent to continent. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Neil Gaiman, The King in Yellow is one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. In this dangerously unputdownable graphic-novel adaptation, I. N. J. Culbard brings to life a thrilling tale of horror that will make readers laugh and cry and tremble with fright . . . Read at your own risk.
