H. P. LOVECRAFT’S “THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE”
TANABE Gou [Japan]
This is one volume in the artist’s “Lovecraft Masterpieces” series of comicalized versions of works by the American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. Mysterious events occur after a meteorite falls in New England toward the end of the 19th century. The densely shaded drawing style faithfully evokes the sinister mood of the original book.
