September 22nd, 2008 – Los Angeles, CA – BOOM! gives horror legend H.P. Lovecraft’s prose poem NYARLATHOTEP new life in a handsome hardcover edition, featuring illustrations by Chuck BB (BLACK METAL)! A must-have for Lovecraft fans, Lovecraft’s original prose poem, a legendary cornerstone of the Cthulhu mythos, is reprinted in its entirety and visually interpreted by one of comics’ most extraordinary new talents.
“I was absolutely excited to take on a Lovecraft project,” said illustrator extraordinaire Chuck BB. “What appeals to me so much about Lovecraft’s writing is that he is able to express a level of scariness that is less about spooking you, and more about making you feel small and insignificant in an unexplored world. Lovecraft speaks of a force that is beyond the comprehension of human beings, bigger than any religion could possibly offer, and older than time itself.”
“Adapting a Lovecraft story is challenging, as the descriptions are…well… non-descript. This is of course part of the charm of his stories, the idea that what the humans in the tales see are something that they can not comprehend, and thusly can not put down in concise words.”
H.P. LOVECRAFT’S NYARLATHOTEP will be a 32 page exquisite hardcover edition with illustrations by Chuck BB. Priced at $14.99 it has a Diamond item order code of SEP083817.
