    1. H.P. Lovecraft Richard Corben Matt Howarth Rod Lott Rick Geary Mark Nelson Gerry Alanguilan Tom Pomplun says:

      Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.Lovecraft s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity Lovecraft s protagonists usually achieve the mirror opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.Although Lovecraft s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

    1. This book is a sort of confluence for me. It was originally published in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, about 25 miles from home-base in the beautiful driftless area, where I often go hiking. So, yes, I approach this work with a bit of parochialism.One danger in revisiting work in a different medium (and yes, I do count the Graphic Novel as a different medium than straight prose) is that each medium allows some certain freedom of mind to fill in gaps left by the medium itself. That's the primary reason [...]

    2. I believe it must be incredibly difficult to abridge Lovecraft's antiquarian, verbose prose into condensed graphic novelettes without making the reader incredibly confused. Some graphic compendiums can create comics out of Lovecraft stories quite well, such as Dan Lockwood's Lovecraft Anthology Volume 1. However, most of the time, it seems these projects are doomed to failure and usually leave the reader wishing for more than what is presented.This compilation strived to be great, but falls flat [...]

    3. To be fair, I can't judge the whole book because I didn't actually finish it. The illustrations are pretty cartoony and goofy looking, not the type of art I would expect to be paired with Lovecraft stories. It really shook up the whole mood. Maybe these are directed more at children, so they toned down the art? But then again, I'm not sure kids should be reading Lovecraft in the first place if they can't handle dark stuff. I also don't feel that the excerpts taken from the short stories are used [...]

    4. Some of the artwork feels a little cartoony for these stories, still nothing like falling in and out of sleep while reading Lovecraft and having weird hallucinations.

    5. This was a lot of fun. Most of it are Lovecraft’s words and the illustrations bring them to life, sometimes in creepy, sometimes in eldritch, ways.

    6. I wanted to enjoy this more than I did. But first, I did like how the adaptations dealt with dialogue. Lovecraft is known for using sparse dialogue in his work, so the writers here had to provide their own, and make it appropriate to the characters--in terms of both behavior and region--and they were successful in that. The problem I had was the artwork. That isn't to say the artists did a poor job. On the contrary, the artwork is fine. Some is reminiscent of early Eastman and Laird Turtles, and [...]

    7. This graphic treatment of several of Lovecraft's short stories--including a rare comedy (!)--seemed like a pretty good introduction to the author and his work. Each story was illustrated by a different artist, so I could also compare their styles and treatment of the material. I actually wasn't drawn to any of the illustration styles, but I think that they still treated their subjects well. Once again, the illustration styles with clear lines and easy to distinguish features appealed to me the m [...]

    8. This review is of the 2nd edition. I went into this one a little hesitantly as Lovecraft and I have not got along too well up to this point. I have only read a handful of his stories, here and there, as found in anthologies. This is actually the first time I've read a collection specifically of him. In the past I just really didn't "get" his stories, or really understand why he was so well-loved. I did read one recently that I loved, though. I had already discovered DC Comics homage to Lovecraft [...]

    9. Strange Fiction seems perfect for the adaption to comics and since it seems unlikely that truly great adaptions of many of Lovecraft's works are going to come to the big screen this is great. And there are several stories in this that are worth picking up. The biggest weakness is, in my opinion, the choice of stories. Some of them are strong like The Shadow over innsmouth and dreams in the witch house, but there is no reason to adapt Sweet Ermengarde. The different art styles are also interestin [...]

    10. Kaksi ja puoli tähteä. Hieman puuduttavaa sarjakuvaa useilta eri taiteilijoilta. Ensimmäinen tarina oli ihan ok, mutta loppujen kanssa oli hieman jo vääntöä, lukuunottamatta jotain vähän keveämpää albumin keskellä. Reanimatorissa oli niin paljon tekstiä, että varmaan kannattaa lukea tarina ihan kirjasta suoraan. Albumin englanti oli raskaanoloista, mikä saattoi edesauttaa ajoittaista puutumista, eikä sarjakuvataidekaan aina jaksanut kovasti innostaa. Albumin kansi on mahtava ja [...]

    11. A collection of several H.P. Lovecraft stories told in graphic form.I had hopes for this book based on the cover but most of the art just doesn't work or match the stories. Lovecraft would be a very hard author to illustrate and to make it work I feel you would have to take the work seriously and match the darkness of the visuals to the darkness of the imagery. Most of these stories seemed to go more for comedic effect and broad cartoony art, which on it's own is not unappealing, but does not fi [...]

    12. With some very interesting illustration styles, this graphic novel kept my interest. The writing of the stories at times seemed a little too simplified from the original versions, however. I think, though, that part of the success of H.P. Lovecraft's stories in their horrifying manner is that the reader has to use his own imagination, which is always much more terrifying than anything that could be put to pen. Despite this, this book was a good quick read.

    13. I couldn’t make it through the last part of the book. It was a really long and not excitingly illustrated poem of Lovecrafts. I feel like the first story was the best and that my interest quickly declined thereafter.

    14. Really great graphic version of some of Lovecraft's most famous tales. Very spooky and strange, but also very accessible! The illustrations match the mood of the stories and really bring it all together.

    15. Challenging for me, Lovecraft has a following, and very influential, but even in Graphic Novel form is not an easy read.

    16. This was an enjoyable book with some fantastic illustrations. My favorite story, of course, was one in which a gang of cats exact their revenge on a cat-hating couple.
