The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath & Other Stories

H.P. Lovecraft and Jason Bradley Thompson. Mock Man (www.mockman.com), $25 (184p) ISBN 978-0-9839893-0-1
Yet another in the surprisingly growing shelf of comics adaptations of Lovecraft. This one features a radically quirky art style and four stories united by the theme of voyages and dreams. The major part of the book is taken up by the title novella of the collection; it sees a determined Randolph Carter braving the complex dangers of the dream lands in his attempt to reach a perfect city that may forever be out of his reach. Although at first glance crude, Thompson’s crosshatched stick figure illustrations prove surprisingly well-suited to Lovecraft’s stories, adding to the air of dreamlike unreality. Lovecraft’s works are a cornucopia of inspiration for a modern creator; this striking work is evidence of that. (May)
