Three short stories and six short poems from Lovecraft have made an amazingly drawn nine tales of cosmic horror, reimagined by the wickedly talented Rich Corben.

Richard Corben adapts (some more loosely than others) about a dozen of Lovecrat's short-stories and poems in this nice edition hardcover.

I especially liked that after each adaptation, the original Lovecraft story or poem would be presented as it was originally written. It gives the reader a look into Corben's methods of adaptation.

A good book to have if you're a fan of Corben and/or Lovecraf's work.

"Leglo strave: Hauard Filips Lavkraft" otvara prilično verna adaptacija čuvene Lavkraftove priče "Dagon", koja, uz "Činjenice u vezi sa Arturom Džerminom i njegovom porodicom", predstavlja vrhunac ovog izbora. Segmenti "Ožiljak", "Sećanje", "Kanal", "Lampa", "Bunar" i "Prozor" u zasnovane na slabo poznatim Lavkraftovim pesmama, a tu je, kao četvrta u nizu, i "Muzika Eriha Zana" po istoimenoj priči. Prerade priča su prilično verne predlošcima, dok strip verzije pesama od Lavkrafta preuzimaju samo ...more

Lovecraft and comics go hand-in-hand. Even if you haven’t read anything by H.P. Lovecraft, you’ve still been exposed to his works if you’ve read Hellboy, Uzumaki or countless other horror titles. Even the DC and Marvel Universes have been plagued by the Lovecraftian combination of cosmic horror and flesh and blood (and tentacle) creepiness.

Against this setting (which also includes many direct adaptations), it’s hard to bring something new, but that’s exactly what Richard Corben does with H.P. Lo

Recommends it for: Lovecraft fans
This graphic novel is a retelling of several classic H.P. Lovecraft short stories and poems in the sequential format.

Specifically the stories/poems told here were:

Dagon, Recognition, A Memory, The Music of Erich Zann, The Canal, The Lamp, Arthur Jermyn, The Well, The Window.

H.P. Lovecraft was an influential horror and science fiction writer from the early 20th century. His work has influenced almost all the major current horror writers. I would actually compare Lovecraft to Borges, although that

Richard Corben is something of an acquired taste, I think, and he's an artist whose work definitely works better in some contexts than others. He's been doing Hellboy stories lately, and mostly they've played nicely to his strengths. Here he adapts several stories and poems by H.P. Lovecraft to, in my opinion, great effect. Part of this effect comes from his choices of material. Most of the adaptations are of poems, and those that aren't are of stories that you don't often see, specifically "Dag ...more

Richard Corben, famous from Heavy Metal (Denn) and Vampirella, uses H.P. Lovecraft as inspiration, bringing the Master's vision to life in a very graphic way. Check out my full review: Haunt of Horror: Lovecraft

My recent discovery of Lovecraft's writing has made for some delightful reading. This comic was a great introduction into some of his poems and much different than anything being published elsewhere by Marvel. Richard Corben does a fantastic job reinterpreting Lovercraft. I've always been a huge fan of his artwork, and he doesn't disappoint here. I know some fans loathe Corben's pencils, but I've always found his work to be refreshing in a medium so bound by its needless desire to ape other arti ...more

Una mini di 3, inedita in Italia, di cui ho recuperato di recente il primo numero, che mi mancava.
Ogni numero presenta una riduzione a fumetti di un racconto lungo di HPL, più uno o due riduzioni tratte da racconti brevi o ispirate a sue poesie. Una riduzione abbastanza fedele.
La prima cosa da dire è che se a uno non piace lo stile di disegno di Corben, queste storie potrebbero sembrare davvero difficili da leggere, ma a me Corben non dispiace affatto.

Nel complesso ho letto alcuni racconti ben

I have always loved Richard Corben's work from Twisted Tales and, of course, the legendary Eerie and Creepy. If only horror was still that great. The adaptations are good in this volume, but a few are a little too loose or awkward. The best part is the artwork of Corben that accompanies the stories. I'm also glad that the work was done in black and white (and grey), and not color. I guess I grew up on too much Universal Monster movies. The B&W suits Corben's style and Lovecraft's work quite ...more

Pretty cool, the art is great and the original Lovecraft stories are also included.

Me gusta Lovecraft y me gustan los comics, pero este no me lleno. El arte fue demasiado burdo para mi gusto, aun para un underground como este, y se tomaron demasiadas libertades al momento de interpretar los poemas. Sus puntos buenos: Colocar el texto original al final de cada historia y tomar los cuentos menos representativos de Lovecraft, hubo muchos que desconocia.

Realmente es una obra de provecho y sumamente disfrutable que explora las historias menos conocidas del siempre admirado Lovercraft, inclusive diría que se trata de una recopilación mas interesante y bien diseñada, a comparación del volumen de Poe. Bastante recomendable para conocer mas del autor.
