The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward by H.P. Lovecraft and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

Alongside the simultaneous re-releases of ‘The Dream Quest Of Unknown Kadath’ and ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’, SelfMadeHero have republished another of the I.N.J. Culbard graphic novels in a slightly smaller paperback format. Again, the adaptation is basically sound but having read through all three of them now, the quirks, if not quite limitations, of […]

Because ‘The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath’ was never finished in his lifetime, many fans of H.P. Lovecraft have tended to pass over this novella in favour of his more polished and accessible works. In doing so, they miss out on some of Lovecraft’s most intense imagery and exotic ideas. It tells the story of a […]
