Every October, on top of the insane amount of horror movies I watch, I take the time to re-read my favorite Lovecraft stories. There’s no better way to welcome the swirling sounds of Fall than to curl up with “The Rats in the Walls” or “The Dunwich Horror”.
Dark Horse Comics takes on a Lovecraft theme this month with their 48-page Creepy anthology issue #10 to help you get in the Lovecraftian spirit. Yep, that’s right, every story in the issue is either an adaptation of, or inspired by, the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The issue features work from John Arcudi, Richard Corbem, Darick Roberston, Doug Moench, and many others.
WRITTEN BY: H.P. Lovecraft, Doug Moench, Matt Weinhold, John Arcudi, Jim & Ruth Keegan, Dan Braun, Bob Jenney
ART BY: Darick Robertson, Jim & Ruth Keegan, Bob Jenney, Kelley Jones, Richard Corben, Peter Bagge
PUBLISHER: Dark Horse
RELEASE: October 3rd, 2012
In honor of the greatest horror writer of them all, Uncle Creepy presents an all-Lovecraft special. We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy! Leading off with the twist-filled conclusion to Doug Moench and Kelley Jones’s mind-blowing “The Lurking Fate That Came to Lovecraft,” this issue also includes takes on the master from the teams of John Arcudi/Richard Corben and Matt Weinhold/Darick Robertson, a classic reprint of “The Rats in the Walls,” and a variety of other Lovecraft-inspired features! For once even Uncle Creepy is scared!
