Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Miskatonic Project: The Bride of Dagon is the latest compilation in graphic novel form by the enterprising Transfuzion Publishing. It lists for $15.99, undiscounted by Amazon, for a 100 page issue, pretty much standard value for the money for a graphic novel. I believe the original comics dated from the early 1990s, but there was no note on the origins of the comics so I am guessing. I actually think Transfuzion missed an opportunity to help collectors here. Maybe someone can enlighten me about the publication history. Production qualities are good. Art was by Jim Mooney, Don Heck and Melissa Martin-Ellis. It was OK, but perhaps not as inspired as that for The Whisperer in Darkness by Heck, Hutchinson, Martin and Banks. My favorite panels were perhaps those of a rampaging statue of Cthulhu. I was not enamored of Deep Ones who looked like mermen or of Dagon. After the reprinted comics, we get brief bios of the creators, a few pages of text from The Festival (attributed to Randolph Carter), a few pages about Herbert West and a reprint of the story Dagon. Alas, none of these were illustrated to any extent and they served as mediocre filler for me. The best part was the catalogue of Miskatonic Project gear, which I will probably shop for!

There may be minor spoilers that follow, for those who care.

This issue stands or falls on the quality of the comic, and I found it to be a mixed bag. For someone not well versed in Lovecraft it would likely be better than for an assiduous Lovecraftian. As a comic it was a bit pulpy, rescue a damsel in distress sort of story with OK art. Certainly Cthulhu mythos comic fans need to take a look, as the originals are hard to come by.
