Format: Paperback
The Lovecraft Anthology, Volume 1 is a production of Selfmadehero from the UK, edited by Dan Lockwood. The attractive cover art seems to show a street scene in Innsmouth and is by Ben Templesmith. They have plans for producing comic book adaptations of most of HPL's famous works. The Lovecraft Anthology is a handsome production and I think delivers good value for the purchase price. While I may quibble with this or that in a comic book adaptation from the master, these stories for me will stand or fall with the artwork.

Here are the contents, and the artistic team. All are adaptations of HPL's famous stories.

The Call of Cthulhu - writer Ian Edgington, artist D'Israeli - The major competition for this book is the magnificent version of John Coulthart, available in his compilation The Haunter of the Dark: And Other Grotesque Visions. This new version is more comparable to, say, the recent release of Michael Zigerlig's adaptation from Transfuzion Publishing. I enjoyed Edgington and D'Israeli's efforts (although, as usual for everyone but maybe Alan Moore, they tended to smooth over HPL's racist references like nautical looking Negro). The best panels were those of Cthulhu itself. Anyway, this was an auspicious start to the book.

The Haunter of the Dark - writer Dan Lockwood, artist Shane Ivan Oakley - Mr. Coulthart never finished his version of this tale and all we have are a few tantalizing images. Otherwise the creative team has the playing field to themselves as far as I know, and they do a crackerjack job. The stylized art is evocative and effective.

The Dunwich Horror - writer Rob Davis, artist INJ Culbard - Well, I thought Mr. Culbard's adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness was OK but I was not bowled over by the art.

With all the second-rate pseudo-Lovecraftian graphic novel series coming out these days, it was a pleasure to find a volume of superb adaptations of the real thing. I've been a Lovecraftian since the 60s, and these are the finest graphic versions of HPL Ive ever read. Remarkably faithful to the original stories, with a terrific selection of artists. This is the real deal, and if you're a Lovecraft fan, a must have. I'm really looking forward to Volume 2.

Format: Paperback
This is the same compilation of Lovecraftian comics presented by Selfmadehero in April 2011 (ISBN 978-1906838287). I don't know if the cover is different because this is the US issue and the other was from the UK, or if there were contractual issues with a second printing.

You can refer to my previous review. It is a highly enjoyable collection. I don't think there is any reason to own both versions, that's too extreme even for me!

Meh. Don't read the condensed animated version until you have taken in the original story. I made that mistake with "Haunter in the Dark" and it left me very confused. Also the art is a bit more cartoony than is have liked in most of the stories. That said, I'm not bummed I bought it. It's a fun read so long as I've taken in the Livecraft version beforehand.

This is a must own for any Lovecraft fan. The adapters and illustrators did an excellent job in bringing the words of HP Lovecraft to life. So if your a fan just buy it, enough said.

My son recently discovered Lovecraft. As he's also a huge graphic novel lover, this book seemed a good addition to his collection. He loves it and has been sharing it with friends who aren't as tolerant of Lovecraft's purple prose and racialism.
