Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
H.P.Lovecrafts kurzer, aber gehaltvoller Roman AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS (deutsch immer etwas effekthascherisch als BERGE DES WAHNSINNS übersetzt, obgleich das sperrigere IN DEN BERGEN DES WAHNSINNS der eigentlichen Intention Lovecrafts näher stehen dürfte) ist ohne Zweifel eine der interessantesten, wenn auch vertracktesten Horror-Erzählungen des amerikanischen Großmeisters und Zelebranten des 'cosmic horror'.

Eine Gruppe pedantisch-begeisterter, schulweisheitshöriger, in ihrer bisweilen hilflosen Naivität geradezu rührender Wissenschaftler (selbstredend der Miskatonic Universität) will eigentlich nur Erkenntnislücken auf den Gebieten der Geologie, Biologie und antarktischen Geographie schließen, stößt im Verlauf der Reise in das namenlose Weiß aber zunächst auf surreal-monolithische Berge, dann auf eingefrorene (und keineswegs leblose) Abkömmlinge der sagenhaften 'Alten Wesen' und schließlich auf eine wahnwitzig übergroße Stadt im Eis, deren Wandzeichnungen (= Comics!) ziemlich genaue Auskunft über eine bislang gänzlich unbekannte Geschichte intelligenter Erdbwohner geben, die so gar nicht menschlich waren.

Gerade das betont nüchterne Beharren auf Fakten, wissenschaftlichen Methoden und menschlicher Rationalität, das sich allen Widerständen zum Trotz im Verlauf der Erzählung nicht nur als irrig, sondern sogar als lebensbedrohlich herausstellt, führt im Verein mit der abweisenden Natur und der im wahren Wortsinn unmenschlichen Architektur zu einer perfekten Atmosphäre kosmischen Horrors, dessen setting sich am besten mit den amerikanischen Adjektiven 'outlandish' und 'eldritch' beschreiben lässt.

Pretty good adptation, OK art 10. Januar 2011
Von Matthew T. Carpenter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Selfmadehero is an independent small press from the UK devoted to producing high quality graphic novels, including in printed form. They have been at it since 2007 but they just crossed my radar with the adaptation of At the Mountians of Madness by INJ Culbard. For those of us who are mythos fans there is more good stuff ahead, as they plan to publish some adaptations of HPL's other works including The Dunwich Horror in 2011. Mr. Culbard's website gives some samples of his work. I ordered my copy from the UK direct from the publisher; delivery over the Christmas rush was about 8 weeks. The production is certainly high quality, with an atmospheric cover and excellent colors.

Regarding this adptation, well, I really wish I liked it better. I found it to be just OK. My up front bias is that after years of familiarity with HP, ATMOM is my favorite story. The problem is parts of it are hard to adapt visually. I mean, how did the protagonist actually figure out with the Elder Things' pictographs actually meant? It sort of strains credulity in the novella and here, well how do you depict that in a comic? It makes me wonder what Guillermo Del Toro is going to do. And what is he going to do with tekeli-li. Mostly my impression was that the rest of the adaptation was decent. I am not familiar with any other graphic novel versions of the story and Mr. Culbard's effort is estimable enough; most artists would rather take on a shorter, less problematic or juicier tale so kudos for assailing the heights on his first Lovecraftian book. So what were the best parts? The drawings of mountains and machinery, ships and airplanes were all very well done. The atmospheric effect of the way the mountains were presented was a strong point. The Elder Thing and the autopsy were excellent. The crowning glory, however, was when the plane carrying Dyer and Danfort crested the mountain range to reveal the ancient remains of the city. On the other hand, I wasn't too taken with the drawing of people and I didn't find the shoggoth particularly horrific.

There is really no competition for the book; if you want a graphic novel adptation of ATMOM, this is the only one. It is not very expensive and offers a pleasant chance to while away a winter evening (it was snowing outside while I read my copy). You don't absolutely need to read HPL's novella first, although it helps (and you can get it online for free). I think most fans will enjoy it. I certainly did, although I wished for better art. It ranks about with the books Worlds of HP Lovecraft from Transfuzion. I like the art of Richard Corben in Haunt of Horror: Lovecraft a bit better. I look forward to Selfmadehero's next Lovecraft book.

Great Quality Full Color Graphic Novel Adaptation 4. Oktober 2011
Von Talvi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a very well done graphic novel adaptation of the famous Lovecraft novel. The book has forwards and more information about Lovecraft and the novel which was useful to read: I've not read Lovecraft books and instead picked this up because of the graphic novel format.

The quality of the book is obvious: beautiful full color illustrations on thick quality matte (not glossy) paper. The illustrations themselves are in the style of the period in which the book was written: 1930s cartoony (more like the loose Dick Tracy/Popeye art rather than more intricate serialized comics art of Flash Gordon). Those looking for horror/horrific artwork should look elsewhere: this is a literary adaptation and not a horror art. I personally really appreciated and respected that the art work echoed the spirit/era of the book rather than being a modern reinterpretation completely with overlybuilt muscular young men with long hair.

Since I had never read Lovecraft, I did not come into the story knowing it in advance. And admittedly, I was completely puzzled by the end of the book over what had happened. I think there were too many concepts that simply could not be drawn and were solely meant for the imagination of the book reader. I don't fault that at the artist: in fact, I think he did a decent enough job of covering the story. But as such, I appreciated the book once more once I read up on the story elsewhere.

In all, I was very pleased with the book. It is well drawn and does a decent job of conveying a very difficult storyline. I also really like that the book respects the spirit and feel of when the book was written: the 1930s.

Very well done, but missing that little extra "something" 27. Januar 2012
Von J. Nutting - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've been a Lovecraft fan for half my life, and I purchased this adaptation shortly after hearing about it on the H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast. The book is printed on nice, non-glossy paper, and overall I really like the artwork. However I was hoping for something a little more, particularly (as others have mentioned) the point near the ending. IMHO this was always one of the weakest parts of the original story, and I was hoping that this edition would provide a believable context for the idea that these researchers could figure out the entire history of an alien race just by looking at their wall-carvings for a couple of hours. I was hoping for a lot of extra visual art here to show the kind of things that the guys are looking at, to give a sense of how they piece it together, but if anything, that whole segment seemed severely truncated instead. Otherwise, a really nice adaptation.

Holy smoke, we have the good, the tedious and the ugly... 6. Januar 2015
Von Rick O - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Holy smoke, we have the good, the tedious and the ugly in H.P Lovecraft's classic novella, At the Mountains of Madness. H. P. Lovecraft published this story in 1936, one year before his death. The good is that this story is very contemporary and most likely would be a blockbuster movie in the hands of Steven Spielberg. Why not make it? Well, what about the tedious? I thought that the visual chroniclization (is it a real word, or did I just make it up?) of the city behind the mountain was a bit too much descriptive writing for me. For example when Professor Dyer describes the rooms in the city, he says, "The prime decorative feature was the almost universal system of mural sculpture, which tended to run in continuous horizontal bands three feet wide and arranged from floor to ceiling in alternation with bands of equal width given over to geometrical arabesques." Or what about, "But the salient object of the place was the titanic stone ramp which, eluding the archways by a sharp turn outward into the open floor, wound spirally up the stupendous cylindrical wall like an inside counterpart of those once climbing outside the monstrous towers or ziggurats of antique Babylon."

Besides page after page of descriptive writing about the city, Lovecraft can make your head spin with some of his other prose, such as, when commenting on what Dyer believed to be the extraterrestrial builders (the elder things/the old ones) of the city, the professor says, "They were the makers and enslavers of that life, and above all doubt the originals of the fiendish elder myths which things like the Pnakotic Manuscripts and the 'Necronomicon' affrightedly hint about." What? That went way over my head. What about, "The decadent cartouches and dadoes telling this story were, as I have said, the latest we could find in our limited search." Make sure you have a lexicon nearby. Okay, what about the ugly? Well the ugly is actually good. Lovecraft's vision of the leathery barrel shaped winged alien life form with five head tentacles and pseudo feet is awesomely ugly. Lovecraft not only has a brilliant imagination, but also sketched his monstrosities. This was a very talented writer and like Edgar Allan Poe wasn't recognized as a literary giant until well after his death. Okay, lets talk about this scary tale that was originally serialized into three issues of 'Astounding Stories' in 1936.
.
The narrator named Dyer (we know he is Professor William Dyer of Miskatonic University from a previous appearance in 'The Shadow out of Time') tells the frightening story of the school's funded expedition to the Antarctic Continent. He says that he is telling this story in order to stop any future expeditions to the icy world. Thirty five men leave on two wooden ex-whaling ships from Boston Harbour on 9/2/1930. Here is a sound attribute that I credit to Lovecraft...only four main characters. They are Dyer (professor of geology), Danforth (grad student), Lake (professor of biology), and Pabodie (professor of engineering). It doesn't get any better than that, just ask Cormac McCarthy (sorry, but I'm a big fan of fewest characters as possible and still have a award winning novel). Once they set up base on the glacier, they find fragments of slate with odd markings. Professor Lake decides to take a small party and head west for a side trip to check out the slate markings. He uses his original drilling apparatus to seek specimens of rocks and whatever, only to break into a underground cave. They go down into the cave to investigate. Wow, "Later. Examining certain skeletal fragments of large land and marine saurians and primitive mammals, find singular local wounds or injuries to bony structure not attributable to any known predatory or carnivorous animal of any period."

Professor Lake finds fourteen barrel shaped monstrosities that are presumed dead (mentioned in the second paragraph of my review). They bring them back to their camp, and Lake attempts to dissect one of them. Why are the sled dogs angry and barking at the specimens? Lake radios his find to Dyer at the base camp. After a wind storm, Lake is never heard from again. Dyer decides to take one of their aeroplanes and fly to the site with grad student Danforth. They find eleven dead, eight monsters missing, six monsters buried, one man and dog missing. The human bodies (including Professor Lake) are mangled with "solid masses of tissues cut out." Dyer and Danforth fly to a site towards the mountains where they find mountains well over 35,000 feet and a hidden city. As they begin to explore the city, Dyer writes, "...yet the prospect of actually entering primordial walls reared by conscious beings perhaps millions of years ago-before any known race of men could have existed-was none the less awesome and potentially terrible in its implications of cosmic abnormality." This is where I stop and I haven't even mentioned the Shoggoths, or the six foot blind albino penguins. If you haven't read Lovecraft, what are you waiting for? I highly recommend this incredible tale.

One of the best HPL adaptations to date 3. Dezember 2012
Von DrNecropolis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Being a huge fan of Lovecraft, I often find myself being let down by film and comic adaptations of his works. Often the issue is how to visually represent ideas that are by their nature supposed to be outside normal human conception. Culbard has done a outstanding job of taking one of Lovecraft's most influential and awe inspiring stories and rendering it in a form both visually appealing and true to the source material. I highly recommend picking up a copy for any Lovecraft fan you know. Of if you have any friends or family into comics but unaware of Lovecraft, this would be a great starting point to get into HPL's world.
