Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

H. P. Lovecraft is the most important and influential horror writer of the twentieth century. His stories of occult nightmare and cosmic terror have drawn praise from William S. Burroughs, Angela Carter and Jorge Luis Borges and continue to inspire new generations of writers and artists.

John Coulthart is one of H. P. Lovecraft's major visual interpreters. As an artist for David Britron's Lord Horror series, his work has been described as "shocking...harmful," "harrowing" and "brilliant" and has been banned on the grounds of obscenity by British law courts. This collection presents all of Coulthart's Lovecraft-inspired work from the past decade including two complete comic strip adaptations — The Haunter of the Dark and The Call of Cthulhu — over thirty pages of previously unseen drawings and paintings plus selections from the controversial Lord Horror series Hard Core Horror and Reverbstorm, which have been evolving Lovecraftian imagery in bold new directions.

Material specially created for this volume includes "The Great Old Ones," a kabbalah of Lovecraft's gods with accompanying evocations by Alan Moore, author of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell and many other graphic novel classics.

Review:

"A terrific book! The strange old man from Providence would have been proud of it." Neil Gaiman

Review:

"I have not seen in many a long series of months or years the kind of continued dedication to the punctilious and meticulous pen and ink work put on board by John Coulthart." Burne Hogarth

Synopsis:

This modern classic of the graphic arts features one of the genre's visionaries who interprets Lovecraft's stories. Illustrations.

This just really didn't do much for me. Coulthart, whose style owes much to H. R. Giger, has a talent for drawing the grotesque, but his renditions of The Haunter of the Dark and Call of Cthulu (particularly the former) would be extremely difficult to understand if the reader wasn't already familiar with the stories, especially since the lettering is annoyingly difficult to decifer. The illustrations for The Dunwich Horror show much more promise, but this may be because the work is incomplete and had not been lettered. While his monsters flow and squirm nicely, his human figures are wooden and tend toward all looking very similar. The included "kabbalah of Lovecraft’s gods with accompanying evocations by Alan Moore" is a bunch of pretty cool illustrations accompanied by complete drivel.
