Inspired by the master of macabre horror, H.P. Lovecraft, and sure to entertain the legion of his fans! Lovecraftian weaves classic H. P. Lovecraft characters such as Herbert West and Randolph Carter and weird tales like "e;The Call of Cthulhu"e; and "e;The Colour Out of Space"e; into a new single universe modern narrative.The first novel in this series introduces The Shipwright Circle, a gaggle of scholarly and creative friends at the Miskatonic University in legend-haunted Arkham, Massachusetts. Here brilliant but neurotic research student Randolph Carter is on a ghastly personal quest, following clues in the fabled Necronomicon to a lost necropolis and a shunned house where terrible secrets lurk beneath its cellar. Meanwhile math whiz Walter Gilman delves into the bloody mysteries surrounding the infamous witch Keziah Mason with help from enfant terrible Richard Upton Pickman, poet/occultist Edward Derby, and charmer Asenath Waite of Innsmouth. And finally medical student Herbert West's inhuman experiments in reanimating the dead take an unexpected turn as a monstrous plague descends on Arkham and a veil cannibal man-beast rampages through its streets.If you enjoyed the TV Series CASTLE ROCK that brought together a number of Stephen King's characters and stories, Lovecrcaftian will take you to a re-imagined cosmic epic universe derived from the mind of H.P. Lovecraft.
A collection of five Lovecraft tales adapted by award winning comic writer Steven Philip Jones. 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 comic artists Sergio Cariello (MARVEL's Deadpool, Captain America), Christopher Jones (DC's Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!), Aldin Baroza (Family Guy, One Fisted Tales), Rob Davis (Star Trek, Quantum Leap), and Wayne Reid (El Cid, Storyville). The five illustrated stories within this Volume are "Dagon"; the U.S.S. Augustus is a nuclear submarine, its crew is unaccustomed to picking up castaways, especially on uncharted islands in the middle of the Atlantic. But that is where the Augustus finds Emma Loveless, sole survivor of a private jet crash. "Arthur Jermyn"; the Jermyns have lived in their Gothic estate in Cambridgeshire for centuries. Explorers and adventurers, they are a wild and violent bunch with a cursed, black history of sudden murder and blood. Until the birth of Arthur Jermyn. "Picture in the House"; Lorraine Claude is fascinated with the morbid and weird, but Lorraine does not count on a sudden thunderstorm driving her into the farmhouse of a very friendly and very old cannibal. "The Statement of Randolph Carter"; Harley Warren is an expert on violent criminals and assists the FBI in their profiling and pursuit of criminals. When Warren reads a book about a location that can reveal the darkest and oldest mysteries of the stygian unknown, Warren wastes no time packing up his reluctant chronicler and assistant, Randolph Carter, to explore the site. "Music of Erich Zann"; each night when American astronomer Max Finn comes home, an old man plays haunting melodies on his violins. Melodies that plague Finn's dreams at night and give him nightmares about a cosmic land ruled by Nyarlathotep, also known as The Crawling Chaos, the messenger of the elder gods.
The year is 2050. The place is New Columbia, the nation’s capital since 2024, constructed over what was previously Denver, Colorado. The United States has suffered the extremeness of polarization. Factions separated by race, politics, religion, and special interests have turned the melting pot into a jigsaw puzzle and now the pieces of the puzzle have fallen apart. A new political party has taken control and the Alternative Party manages to pass their greatest act of legislation...The State Sovereignty Act. The power of the federal government has been severely cut but now there are 50 different 'state' units of power, each vying to push their own agenda. Once the Federal government took back control, the die was cast and the damage was done. The result is an even greater division among the classes. And in this future a wanderer walks the night, a lost and angry soul possessed by questions. A man who no longer exists. Searching for a woman named Opal, who may have the answers. Tatters, as he is known to the people of the streets, is guided by the suggestions of a ghost named Saltev, whom he must avenge. But, to do so, he must infiltrate a powerful and mysterious organization within the government called Phase Ten. Tatters is a man walking the fine line between life and death…He is a man afraid of dying…again.
