    ❝ Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. ❞ I think I went mad then. -- (Dagon, 1917) Artist Richard Corben scripts and illustrates Lovecraft's three short stories and six poems ❝ Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. ❞ I think I went mad then. -- (Dagon, 1917) Artist Richard Corben scripts and illustrates Lovecraft's three short stories and six poems in this crazy and daunting anthology comics in a unique style and method. In short story department, Corben adapts Dagon, Music of Erich Zann, and Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family. It's tough to adapt Lovecraftian short stories and it holds true in this case too. Dagon was good, Arthur Jermyn was passable and Zann was disappointing as Corben failed to capture the iconic "death" moment. But Corben showcases his talent as he masterfully adapts Lovecraft's short and daunting poems. Corben expands upon a simple abstract idea that Lovecraft presented in his poems and manages to create disturbing short stories from these simple one-page verses. That is the undeniably best part of this book and where it triumphs as a collection. The adaptation of three poems stands out in this collection for me. They were Recognition, A memory, and The lamp. Another best thing about the book is the inclusion of original text written by Lovecraft after its respective adaptation. This helped the reader to compare the adaptation to the original material, creating a wholesome experience. The black and white art is good. I have seen better Lovecraftian art, but this was unique on its own terms. Overall, The collection has its ups and downs. But the adaptations of the poems make this collection unique and stand out from other Lovecraftian graphic adaptations.

    Three short stories and six short poems from Lovecraft have made an amazingly drawn nine tales of cosmic horror, reimagined by the wickedly talented Rich Corben.

    Adoro la obra de Lovecraft; el estilo de Corben, por desgracia, no es mi favorito. Sí, sé que es una leyenda del tebeo y la ilustración, permitidme que tenga gustos propios. Este volumen recopilatorio me ha gustado porque ese criterio personal que pido en el párrafo anterior tiende a diluirse cuando hablamos de Lovecraft: me lo trago (casi) todo. Pero no sube a lo más alto de mi podio porque algunas adaptaciones me han parecido demasiado libres y creo que el espíritu se ha roto ligeramente.

Además, la adaptación de poemas es curiosa, pero no son mis obras preferidas de H.P.; soñaba con Carcosa y Leng y he encontrado otras cosas que, si bien pertinentes, quizá no eran adecuadas para lo que pergeñaba. Aún así, muy buena cosa; a las personas que valoren más el arte que la trama o el entretenimiento les gustará.

    Este tomo de la guarida del horror dedicado a los relatos de HP lovecraft me ha gustado más que el de Poe, pero aún así no termina de llenarme.

En general el dibujo de Corben es excelente, pero en cuanto al guión hay muchos altibajos.

    Richard Corben adapts (some more loosely than others) about a dozen of Lovecrat's short-stories and poems in this nice edition hardcover. I especially liked that after each adaptation, the original Lovecraft story or poem would be presented as it was originally written. It gives the reader a look into Corben's methods of adaptation. A good book to have if you're a fan of Corben and/or Lovecraf's work.

    Very interesting collection of half a dozen H.P. Lovecraft's short stories and poems in graphic novel format. Richard Corben's art is very good and manages to show the horror element of Lovecraft's stories with ease.

Very good collection, highly recommended to all Lovecraft's fans and twilight-zone-like-stories aficionados.

    Notable trabajo. Lo interesante de la obra radica en la manera en la cual R. Corben traspasa los textos de Lovecraft a las viñetas. Si bien su interpretación es ciertamente subjetiva, enriquece el relato entregándole atemporabilidad universal. Es así que luego de cada historia, viene el texto original con el cual el lector puede hacer la comparación de rigor, llevandose, por lo menos en mi caso, una grata sorpresa. Imprescindible para los amantes de HPL.

    I will say that is a great adaptation of Lovecraft's work but I still think that DC/Vertigo did a much better job with Lovecraft by which to take his ideas and work and use that for an original idea for a book.

    This is a nice collection of Lovecraft stories and poems, adapted to comics form by Richard Corben. I've been a fan of Corben's work for a long time, so it's always great to read something like this from him.

    Son interesantes los cuentos de Lovecraft encontrar un conjunto de ellos ilustrados es muy novedoso. Lo mejor es que posterior a la ilustración viene el texto original, así uno puede comparar su visión de la visión del dibujante.

El dibujante Richard Corben llevó a cabo a lo largo de su carrera en diversas revistas como Creepy y Eerie adaptaciones de célebres escritores como Edgar Allan Poe (junto a Rich Margopoulos) o el que nos toca en esta ocasión: Howard Phillips Lovecraft. A menudo, guardamos un gran amor hacia ciertas obras que marcan nuestros gustos o nuestra visión del mundo. Es lo que me ocurre con H. P. Lovecraft: la Guarida del Horror, una miniserie de tres números publicados en la línea Max de Marvel y que se componen de una serie de adaptaciones de relatos y poemas del escritor que creó a Dagon, los gatos de Ulthar o a Cthulhu. Con el paso de las décadas, H. P. Lovecraft ha pasado de ser considerado solo un escritor pulp a un impulsor de una fantasía oscura marcada por una visión propia del terror, donde la conspiración contra el ser humano (un ser insignificante) está en marcha a través de seres más antiguos que los dioses, más viejos que la propia creación. Eso crea un temor que más allá de lo físico, también se planea desde un punto de vista psicológico: somos absolutamente nada y cuando nos percatamos de tal fatalidad, ya no podemos seguir engañándonos como el resto de los mortales. La única salida es la locura, la muerte o el suicidio. Crítica completa en el blog

I would actually compare Lovecraft to Borges, although that may be scoffed at my the more literary minded. The art style really suited the stories that were being told. The writing and adaptation to sequential form wasn't as good as I expected, but the author and artists still made it work. When I finished this book I found myself wishing that there were more stories. I'll definitely check out more titles from this series.

    Lovecraft and comics go hand-in-hand. Even if you haven’t read anything by H.P. Lovecraft, you’ve still been exposed to his works if you’ve read Hellboy, Uzumaki or countless other horror titles. Even the DC and Marvel Universes have been plagued by the Lovecraftian combination of cosmic horror and flesh and blood (and tentacle) creepiness. Against this setting (which also includes many direct adaptations), it’s hard to bring something new, but that’s exactly what Richard Corben does with H.P. Lo Lovecraft and comics go hand-in-hand.

Against this setting (which also includes many direct adaptations), it’s hard to bring something new, but that’s exactly what Richard Corben does with H.P. Lovecraft’s Haunt of Horror. Corben digs deeper, presenting stories which don’t usually show up in collections. Even better, many entries draw inspiration from Lovecraft’s poetry. The two stanza “The Well,” blossoms into a 10-page Southern Gothic. Lines like, “Grey with a ground-mist that enfolds and chokes/The slinking shapes which madness has defiled,” provide a nightmarish backdrop for Corben’s black-and-white artwork. Corben blurs the line between adapatation and interpretation, featuring characters and themes atypical of pure Lovecraft. But Lovecraft’s original text follows each story and, for me, Corben’s work rings true.

    Richard Corben is something of an acquired taste, I think, and he's an artist whose work definitely works better in some contexts than others. He's been doing Hellboy stories lately, and mostly they've played nicely to his strengths. Here he adapts several stories and poems by H.P. Lovecraft to, in my opinion, great effect. Part of this effect comes from his choices of material. Most of the adaptations are of poems, and those that aren't are of stories that you don't often see, specifically "Dag Richard Corben is something of an acquired taste, I think, and he's an artist whose work definitely works better in some contexts than others.

    Una mini di 3, inedita in Italia, di cui ho recuperato di recente il primo numero, che mi mancava. Ogni numero presenta una riduzione a fumetti di un racconto lungo di HPL, più uno o due riduzioni tratte da racconti brevi o ispirate a sue poesie. Una riduzione abbastanza fedele. La prima cosa da dire è che se a uno non piace lo stile di disegno di Corben, queste storie potrebbero sembrare davvero difficili da leggere, ma a me Corben non dispiace affatto.

Nulla a che vedere col lavoro di Alberto Breccia, ma è comunque godibile.

    My recent discovery of Lovecraft's writing has made for some delightful reading. This comic was a great introduction into some of his poems and much different than anything being published elsewhere by Marvel. Richard Corben does a fantastic job reinterpreting Lovercraft.

I know some fans loathe Corben's pencils, but I've always found his work to be refreshing in a medium so bound by its needless desire to ape other arti My recent discovery of Lovecraft's writing has made for some delightful reading.

I know some fans loathe Corben's pencils, but I've always found his work to be refreshing in a medium so bound by its needless desire to ape other artists. Corben's distinct penciling style shines here in black and white. As an added bonus, the original stories and poems of Lovecraft's are published after each story. Score. I'll probably end up checking out the Poe mini Corben did as well.

    "Leglo strave: Hauard Filips Lavkraft" otvara prilično verna adaptacija čuvene Lavkraftove priče "Dagon", koja, uz "Činjenice u vezi sa Arturom Džerminom i njegovom porodicom", predstavlja vrhunac ovog izbora.

    I have always loved Richard Corben's work from Twisted Tales and, of course, the legendary Eerie and Creepy. If only horror was still that great. The adaptations are good in this volume, but a few are a little too loose or awkward. The best part is the artwork of Corben that accompanies the stories. I'm also glad that the work was done in black and white (and grey), and not color. I guess I grew up on too much Universal Monster movies. The B&W suits Corben's style and Lovecraft's work quite well I have always loved Richard Corben's work from Twisted Tales and, of course, the legendary Eerie and Creepy.

    Me gusta Lovecraft y me gustan los comics, pero este no me lleno. El arte fue demasiado burdo para mi gusto, aun para un underground como este, y se tomaron demasiadas libertades al momento de interpretar los poemas. Sus puntos buenos: Colocar el texto original al final de cada historia y tomar los cuentos menos representativos de Lovecraft, hubo muchos que desconocia.

    Realmente es una obra de provecho y sumamente disfrutable que explora las historias menos conocidas del siempre admirado Lovercraft, inclusive diría que se trata de una recopilación mas interesante y bien diseñada, a comparación del volumen de Poe. Bastante recomendable para conocer mas del autor.
