Lovecraft is Missing

I'm probably not the go-to guy for opinions on anything related to H.P. Lovecraft, but one of the commenters on the previous post mentioned his new web-comic LOVECRAFT IS MISSING, so I took a look at it. The first few installments are up, and I plan to continue reading it as new pages are posted. I like the art, I like the writing, and I'm very curious to see where the story is going. Good stuff, and if you're interested in comics, Lovecraft, or pulps in general, I recommend that you check it out.

Well James let me suggest the penguin editions. There are three and they have all his stories with terrific notes.

Grab the one with At The Mountains of Madness in it first his longest and greatest story.

I have always had a soft spot for H.P.Lovecraft.
Many of his stories were filmed - like 'The Dunwich Horror' and when Vincent Price wasn't in a Poe horror movie then he was doing Lovecraft.
As Bruce has said the Penguin editions are the best.

It's not that I dislike Lovecraft, it's more that I just don't get the appeal of the stories. Admittedly, I've read only a dozen or so of them, and maybe I didn't read the right ones. I do plan to read more by him. I've been won over by authors before, not liking their work at first and then coming to appreciate it later on, so that could happen here, too. "At the Mountains of Madness" is definitely one of the stories I intend to read. I'll look for those Penguin editions. And to give the man his due, whether I like his stories or not, I do believe that he's incredibly important in the history of horror fiction and am glad that so much of his work is readily available.

By the way, if any of you have suggestions for other Lovecraft stories you particularly like, feel free to send 'em along.
