Young Lovecraft by Josè Oliver & Bartolo Torres

Standard

This small book of comic strips is about the life of Lovecraft – the author of horror myths like the Chtulu one – as a young boy: ghoul, evocations, annoying aunts and an eccentric girl friend at school.

The strips do not want to tell the actual biography of the writer (whose misogyny is well-known for example) but make the fan smile; not all the comics are the same (I did no like much the rewriting of famous novels) but some of them are nice and funny.

The cover image is wonderful.
