Haunt Of Horror: Lovecraft by Richard Corben,
This review is from: Haunt of Horror: Lovecraft (Hardcover)
Haunt of Horror: Lovecraft collects Haunt of Horror: Lovecraft #1-3. Richard Corben adapts and illustrates poems and short stories by H. P. Lovecraft. This volume also includes the source material.
This volume is far superior to Haunt of Horror: Edgar Allen Poe, because that one was terrible and this one gives Corben, a respected horror artist, an opportunity to give image to some of Lovecraft's vague monstrosities. On the whole, Corben does a fair job, although it certainly doesn't help that the entire volume is marred by horrendous narration and dialogue.
Corben's black and white artwork is one of Haunt of Horror's few pluses. He clearly has some stylistic range (although a few of his cartoonier pieces are questionable choices), and he does a fine job with light and shadow, allowing him to set tone and mood appropriately in spite of the literary travesty taking place all around.
Many of these stories are told in such a way as to make the reader ask, "So what?" There's nothing remarkable here.
