by Hans Radionoff, Enrique Breccia, with Keith Griffen.

Introduction by John Carpenter.

Praise for Lovecraft.

Thanks to Keith Giffen, who recast Rodionoffs screenplay as a graphic novel that Argentine artist Enrique Breccia makes a spectacle of melting colors and sharp-featured figures, Lovecrafts misfortunes are our creepy pleasures. -Booklist.

Inspired by a Rodionoff screenplay that assumes the "reality" of the alien monsters invented by H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), Argentine artist Breccia and DC writer Giffen (Lobo) take a surreal, psychosexual look at the American horror masters life story. The book focuses on the graphics, notably lurid, dialogue-free sequences depicting Cthulhu and his tentacled kin assaulting helpless humans, starting with HPLs father, Winfield, shown in bed with a woman not his wife in a Chicago hotel. Like the actual philandering father, who contracted syphilis, this Winfield dies in an insane asylum in Lovecrafts native Providence, R.I., though not before passing on the family copy of Abdul Alhazreds Necronomicon to his young son. -Publishers Weekly.

OVERVIEW: This title examines the bizarre life of author and recluse Howard phillips Lovecraft. Since his early childhood in the late 1800s Lovecraft was haunted with dark visions of demons and death. Trapped in a world of macabre creatures and grotesque thoughts, the writer found escape only by weaving his living nightmares into fictional bloodcurdling horror stories. An uncensored tour into a troubled mind, this beautifully painted paperback edition a traces the toils of a man considered both mentally ill and genius as he stumbles across the fine line between reality and insanity.

2003 Vertigo Trade paperback, 144 pages. New. List Price $17.95.
