Inexplicable murders in the Catskills. A Hooverville of squatters plummets into a gigantic sinkhole during a ferocious thunderstorm, where their bodies are torn apart and devoured as if by some pack of wild animals. Arthur Munroe, a journalist at the scene, follows a trail of legends to an abandoned Dutch colonial mansion at the top of one of the nearby mountains to find answers.
This Lovecraft story is adapted by award winning comic writer Steven Philip Jones (CALIBER’s Sherlock Holmes, Dracula). Lovecraft is considered one of America’s most innovative and popular American horror writers. The master of the weird tale during the first decades of the 20th Century until his premature death in 1937, Lovecraft’s distinctive style and canon of work has influenced many authors. Jones takes the classic tale and while remaining true to the source material, brings it into the modern age which can sometimes make the horror even more terrifying. This tale is illustrated into graphic novel form by Octavio Cariello who has worked on DC’s Green Lantern, Deathstroke, Black Lightning, and MARVEL’s X-Men comic series.
In addition to the comic book adaptation this volume also contains the original published Lovecraft story as written by him.
