mountains of madness

Panel from 'At the Mountains of Madness' (Lovecraft & Culbard 2010: 89)

Panel from page 89 of ‘At the Mountains of Madness’ (Lovecraft & Culbard 2010).

Back in late 2010 we had scottish illustrator and graphic designer Murray Groat‘s wonderful TintinLovecraft crossover covers [check out Murray’s blog, portfolio and deviant art page—there’s more Lovecraftia to discover]. Matchingly enough in the same year a wonderful graphic novel version (Lovecraft & Culbard 2010) of H. P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness (1936) by I. N. J. Culbard was published—drawn in the best ligne claire tradition. For the full experience you first might want to read Poe’s ‘The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket’ (1838) … and if you want to know every fictional story which ever happened in Antarctica, here they are.
