it was amazing
Read in May, 2012 — I own a copy

Once upon a time, Jason Thompson adapted HP Lovecraft's The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath as a comic book... He also illustrated some other HPL stories: The Strange High House in the Mists, Celephais, and The White Ship. I don't know whether the latter was ever published anywhere besides his website, but the former went out of print fairly quickly.

Thompson launched a Kickstarter to print all of these stories in one hardcover edition with updated art. The result is a beautiful, beautiful book that any HPL fan would be happy to add to eir collection. Thompson's art is more manga-style than western. The "mock man" he uses as the main character allows readers to focus on the fantastic dream setting instead of the main character. The stories are from Lovecraft's dream cycle, not the Cthluhu mythos, and they stand alone. This means the book can be passed around to non-fans (cat fanciers, etc) to enjoy without sending them into an impossible spiral of gibbering madness.
