There’s a new Italian graphic novel of Lovecraft’s “The Horror at Red Hook”. It’s actually more a Euro-style ‘BD album’ in page-count and large 17″ x 24″ size. The book shipped in July 2020.
The artist is Stefano Cardoselli. The publisher also offer his “Herbert West” (March 2020) and his the Lovecraftian “The Inhabitant of The Lake” by Ramsey Campbell is due in December 2020. Could be an opportunity here for an Anglosphere publisher to translate and bundle all three.
There’s also yet another graphic novel of At The Mountains of Madness, from Adam Fyda. This appeared in July…
British illustrator Dave Shephard has also announced what appears to be a melding of “Dagon” and “The Call of Cthulhu”, which bills itself in the book’s title as a “graphic novel” — but in the blurb as an “illustrated adaptation”. Due Spring 2021.
Also in graphic novels, The View from the Junkyard recently found a neglected Lovecraftian gem in a graphic novel titled Weird Detective…
The story takes detective fiction and merges it sublimely with the Cthulhu Mythos in ways I’ve seen only in such great books as Shadows over Baker Street; a collection of short stories pitting the Great Detective [Holmes] against the Great Old Ones. Finding something similar in graphic novel format is a treat!
A character that looks like Lovecraft, and he has a talking cat. I like it already.
The View from the Junkyard‘s review also notes his disappointment in discovering that this graphic novel was a trade from 2017 (per-issues 2016), and there have been no more in the years since. He wryly points to the huge difficulty involved in simply finding out about completed-story graphics novels of the pulp entertainment type, which get swamped by endless weekly tidal-waves of manga, superhero, and depressive art-school wrist-slashers…
I might need to hire a weird detective to help me find more like this.
Indeed. In the meantime Weird Detective is currently £9.99 for Kindle on Amazon UK, where for some reason it’s been saddled by Dark Horse with a retro Ditko-like cover that really doesn’t reflect the quality of Guiu Villanova’s interior artwork or layouts. It has about 110 pages of story.
