like any anthology, a lot of it is hit or miss story wise, but most of the different art styles I like.

This is a great anthology of shorts based on the Lovecraft myths and gods. I read this months ago and forgot to review it 'til now. I'm actually in the process of re-reading the book just because it's so good.

I must admit, I knew very little about the Lovecraft myths before reading this. Yes, I'd heard of Cthulhu and others, but hadn't read very much Lovecraft. Still, this was an enjoyable read. So many of the stories made me LOL but some were also scary and or really made me think about the un

I absolutely love this anthology, chuck full of amazing stories spanning the whole range of genres and emotions! You'll laugh, you'll cry, and all just for the small price of pledging your life to the Dark Lord. Is he not merciful?

Having written one of these stories, it's difficult to remain unbiased. I know how much love and work went into each and every story, discovered incredible creators through this collaboration, even made friends. This anthology is a labor of love from everyone involved

An amazing array of comic writers and artists come together for an anthology that is chockful of Cthulhu and Lovecraft-inspired tales. Some are sad, some are funny, some are downright frightening, but ALL of the stories included in this book are highly enjoyable!
A truly mixed bag-- some are pretty darned good, some are very very bad, most are mediocre.

There ARE very good artists and writers in this... however, the jurying process looked entirely nonexistent, I'm sorry to say.

35 stories in under 200 pages is a clear case of quantity over quality. The quality comes as a story titled The Summoning of Brkthruslpk, everything else is just quantity.
