- Full Description
Four stories adapted to comics: "The Lurking Fear" -- Arthur explores a sinkhole where bodies are found, savagely torn apart as if by wild animals. "Beyond the Wall of Sleep" shows that the power of the mind is a mysterious thing when a researcher finds that he and a criminal patient are somehow linked. "The Tomb" -- Jervas Dudley, who is convinced ghosts exist, visits the site where his ancestors perished 200 years ago. "The Alchemist"-- for 600 years the male descendants of the Chabrillane family have all inexplicably perished on their 32nd birthday. Now, the last Count is turning 32.
Lovecraft is considered one of America’s most innovative and popular American horror writers. The master of the weird tale during the first decades of the 20th Century until his premature death in 1937, Lovecraft’s distinctive style and canon of work has influenced many authors. Jones takes the classic tales and while remaining true to the source, brings them into the modern age which can sometimes make the horror even more terrifying.
These tales are illustrated by Octavio Cariello who has worked on DC's Green Lantern, Deathstroke, and Black Lightning comic series.
