Synopsis

This is a new expanded edition of the much sought-after Lovecraftian classic. H. P. Lovecraft is the most important and influential horror writer of the twentieth century. His stories of occult nightmare and cosmic terror have drawn praise from William S. Burroughs, Angela Carter and Jorge Luis Borges and continue to inspire new generations of writers and artists. John Coulthart is one of H. P. Lovecraft's major visual interpreters. As an artist for David Britron's "Lord Horror" series, his work has been described as 'shocking...harmful', 'harrowing' and 'brilliant' and has been banned on the grounds of obscenity by British law courts. This collection presents all of Coulthart's Lovecraft-inspired work from the past decade including two complete comic strip adaptations - "The Haunter of the Dark" and "The Call of Cthulhu" - over thirty pages of previously unseen drawings and paintings plus selections from the controversial "Lord Horror" series "Hard Core Horror" and "Reverbstorm", which have been evolving Lovecraftian imagery in bold new directions.

Material specially created for this volume includes The Great Old Ones, a kabbalah of Lovecraft's gods with accompanying evocations by Alan Moore. This work provides an introduction and additional texts by Alan Moore. It covers endorsements by Neil Gaiman and Burne Hogarth, amongst others. It is a classic collection of graphic art themed around the works of HP Lovecraft. It is part of "Creation Oneiros", a new imprint for the very best in Science Fiction and fantasy. It provides national press coverage, full online promotion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen BEST GRAPHIC FORM LOVECRAFT EVER 3. Februar 2007
Von David Keppel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Over the years I have come across many illustrated, comic book adaptations of Lovecraft works, and even more Lovecraft "inspired" creations. Most fall short in capturing the cosmic horror that is Lovecraft's trademark. There are two works, however, that succeed

wildly in this endeavor. The absolute best, both artistically and horrificly, is John Coulthart's "The Haunter of the Dark : And Other Grotesque Visions" . The illustrations in this volume fully depict the occult evil and sanity shattering madness that Lovecraft specialized in. Judging by the attention to detail that Coulthart put into his satanic artwork, I would guess that he is more than just a casual dabbler in things arcane. He is also a spectacular illustrator.

The 2nd noteworthy Lovecraft graphic work is not an adaptation of one of Howard's stories. It is one that uses him as a character in his own insane little world. "Lovecraft" , by Hans Rodionoff, Enrique Breccia, & Keith Giffen, is a faithfully wicked & terrifying concept piece.

Buy both books and revel in brilliant insanity.

4.0 von 5 Sternen But Give Haeckel Some Credit 5. März 2007
Von D.P. Merde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"The Haunter of the Dark and Other Grotesque Visions" touts a bunch of drivel by Alan Moore, who's become pompously undisciplined in his writing, but it is really the showcase for Coulthart. "Haunter" collects two and a half Lovecraft stories in graphic form. Coulthart tries his hand at "Dunwich" but admits he couldn't really improve on Enrique Breccia's in "Heavy Metal" magazine, so stops halfway through the story. (See Breccia's "Lovecraft" for more of his work.) It ends with a nice splash, though. Coulthart's most proud of his "Call of Cthulhu", which is hard to read because he breaks up the frames into odd angles to mimic the "horrible geometries" described in the story. This adds to the mystery of the story and a growing sense of horror as the pieces come together, an achievement unique to the comic medium. However, I'm convinced that Lovecraft's own effects are ultimately dependent upon the written word's ability to conceal things from and gradually reveal things to the reader's imagination, to tease us out of all rational thought. They just can't be equalled in another medium. Another jewel of "Haunter", though, is the portfolio of Lovecraftian "gods" that follows the stories. Coulthart uses the computer to combine, among other things, some of Ernst Haeckel's "Art Forms of Nature" etchings with his own drawing. Coulthart's not the first person to make this connection. It's well known that Lovecraft admired Haeckel's philosophy, and others have dabbled with using Haeckel's illustrations to evoke the creatures HPL describes in his stories. But Coulthart really commits to the connection. One only wishes he had given some credit to Haeckel. After this portfolio (with its nonsensical "evocations" by Moore) comes a collection of controversial "Lord Horror" illustrations. They are both prurient and puerile -- I damn them with my alliteration! HPL is most effective when trying to maintain dignity as well as sanity in the face of overwhelming cosmic terror, which is itself "dignified" in its own horrible (to human eyes) way, just of another, perhaps even loftier order.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Half-sublime, half-ridiculous 13. April 2008
Von James Hissom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The first half of this volume contains some of the best Lovecraftian graphic work to date. Several plates out Coulthart's "Call of Cthulhu" will probably be familiar to new readers, having appeared in other Lovecraft publications, and his "Haunter of the Dark" creates an equally brooding atmosphere filled with obsessively detailed images. Beyond that, there are ten fairly good, though sometimes gory pages on "The Dunwich Horror," set up in story-board fashion.

Then things really deteriorate: thirty-plus pages of elaborately swirly but atmospherically bland graphics devoted to the Mythos deities, accompanied by the babbling, Anglo-apocalyptic prose poems of Alan Moore, and twenty-five pages of the artist's non-Lovecraftian work for David Britton's "Lord Horror" series, which resemble the obsessively detailed and sadistic pen and ink drawings of some gifted teenage horror fan. The artist suggests a plausible linkage between the grimly stylized concentration camp architecture in several of these and Lovecraft's own apocalyptic vision, but many readers, I suspect, will find the results obscenely offensive. One can see how this stuff attracted the attention of British censors in the nineties, and it is irritating to find Lovecraft's name prominently displayed on the cover of a book that eventually strays so far from the spirit of his work. My inclination would be to look for the "Haunter" and "Cthulhu" series in another graphic-fiction anthology (maybe it's already out there); as it is, I would not recommend this as a gift for any Lovecraft-loving young person.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Whoa! 25. Februar 2013
Von Jeffrey B. Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is some beautiful, and exceptionally dark, illustrative work. He really does a great job of bringing HPL's words to life in graphic form. Nice coffee-table piece if you like to freak out your friends.
3.0 von 5 Sternen High hopes unmet 21. Mai 2012
Von D - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I really wanted to love this book. I am a huge Lovecraft fan and I enjoy graphic novels - this seemed like a sure thing.

The biggest problem is the font. It looks cool, but it's very difficult to read, and I have to reread words in nearly every frame because the first reading made no sense because the font is so challenging. This kills the momentum of the story.

The art is disappointing. It's not in color, which is fine. But it is heavy, dark, and too abstract/surrealistic. I have no problem using art in books as a starting point for my imagination, but this art makes it hard to visualize anything.

Between the font issue and the abstractness of the art, I couldn't even finish it.
