The King In Yellow by Robert W Chambers and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

The original ‘The King In Yellow’ was published in 1895 as a collection of ten short stories, of which the first four are loosely connected examples of weird fiction. They share a number of motifs, including references to a play, the eponymous ‘The King In Yellow’, that causes anyone to read the second act to […]

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 […]

The Shadow Out Of Time by H.P. Lovecraft and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (book review).

One of Lovecraft’s final works, ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’ is widely considered a masterpiece of the genre. It tells the story of an economics professor, Nathaniel Peaslee, trying to reconstruct the missing years of his life of which he has no memory. Half-way through giving a lecture in 1908 he passed out and, so […]

Brass Sun Graphic Novel  by Ian Edginton and I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

‘The Brass Sun’ graphic novel collects several issues of the on-going series into a hardback format with good paper and high quality printing. I have reviewed the first few issues previously and don’t want to give away the plot of the later issues so this is an easy one. The setting is certainly original. The […]

The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath by H.P. Lovecraft and I.N.J. Culbard (book review).

Artist I.N.J. Culbard has adapted another H.P. Lovecraft story after winning an award for ‘At The Mountains Of Madness’. ‘The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath’, a quirky work even by Lovecraft’s standards, was not published in his lifetime. Posthumously, of course, every word he ever penned in now available in one form or another. This story […]

Celeste by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

‘Celeste’ is a graphic novel by I.N.J. Culbard whose graphics I have enjoyed on the ‘Brass Sun: The Wheel Of Worlds’ mini-series. His art is equally good on ‘Celeste’ and he has more space here to indulge in slow-paced storytelling which he does to good effect. There’s a very cinematic opening few pages in which […]

The Orrery is a huge clockwork star system where planets rotate on gigantic metal arms and the sun of cogs is worshipped as a god. Unfortunately, the sun is dying, the planets are freezing one by one and cults […]

The Shadow Out Of Time by H.P. Lovecraft and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

While HP Lovecraft himself had problems writing ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’ and never considered it entirely satisfactory, subsequent critics have generally regarded it as one of his masterpieces. Part thriller, part monster story, part psychological study and part political manifesto, ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’ is in its entirety a superb piece of Science […]
