Book Description

14 Oct 2010 Eye Classics
A tale of terror unlike any other: The barren, windswept interior of the Antarctic plateau was lifeless, or so the expedition from Miskatonic University thought. Then they found strange fossils of unheard-of creatures, carved stones tens of millions of years old and, finally, the unspeakable, mind-twisting terror of the City of the Old Ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pacy adaptation of a cosmic horror classic 7 Nov 2010
By Murray
It is 1930, and a team of scientists sets out from Miskatonic University, Arkham, intent on venturing further into the Antarctic than any previous expedition. What they find at first promises to revolutionise the scientific view of human history: fourteen perfectly preserved specimens of a completely alien lifeform buried in a thirty million year old strata of Antarctic ice. One of the expedition nicknames them "Elder Things", taking his cue from an ancient, worm-ridden volume of forbidden lore back in the Miskatonic stacks, The Necronomicon of Mad Abdul Alhazred. And then the terror begins...

Culbard's pacy adaptation of H P Lovecraft's most extended, and successful, foray into the realms of science fictional cosmic horror captures the awe (those towering mountains, that ancient cyclopean city) and vertiginous, creeping terror of Lovecraft's original in a bold, direct style that nevertheless leaves room for some nice subtleties of build-up. The brief glimpse of movement in the ancient city, for instance, is particularly nicely done -- to single out but one moment in this excellent retelling of a weird fiction classic.

I received this as a Christmas gift as i'm quite a fan of the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. I was quickly taken by the obvious love that Ian Culbard has for the source material, and was immediately reminded by the art style of Hergés' Tintin books and the Zombieworld: Champion Of The Worms graphic paperback by Mike Mignola and Pat McEown. I enjoyed it so much that I was saddened that it was over.
I can only hope that Ian Culbard decides to do more of Lovecrafts stories (The Call of Cthulhu or The Shadow Over Innsmouth) or perhaps dabble with the stories of M.R. James (Oh Whistle and I'll Come To You, A Warning To The Curious).
Anyway this comes highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars It Came from Kadath! 5 April 2012
By ScS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This graphic novel expressed the feeling of At the Mountains of Madness in a way that few other tributes have. The cosmic horror of this ancient city was brought to the page with skill worthy of the Elder Things themselves. I really enjoyed the art style as well, which called to mind comic work of that same time period. The real star of the book is Antarctica, depicted in all its terrible glory.

By Andy

After reading the original story by HP Lovecraft, which I loved by the way, I found out about the graphic novel and had to buy it. After reading it, I liked this version as well. Adapted and illustrated by Ian Culbard, it gives a different, and obviously, more visual take on the classic tale. Yes, it glosses over some passages, but overall the artwork (which is a delight) and plot pacing go hand in hand and carries you along for the ride. Would definitely recommend getting this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice adaption 27 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pretty good, love the comic strip vibe. Hopefully more books can be adapted into comic books in the near future. At the mountains of madness is my favourite book and this adaption was good, slight changes due to it being a comic strip, so necessary really. All round good read and good artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Elder Things would be pleased 16 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh Mr. Culbard is a bit of a master isn't he? An excellent if not entirely accurate adaptation of HPL's greatest single work. For newbies or die hards like myself this is a must for anyone who have ever wondered what the city of the Elder Things contains. Excellent art and pacing and mood. Can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinister stuff
Expected a more self-contained story (it's quite inconclusive), but it is creepy, very well told and beautifully illustrated. Will look out for the following stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic story
I was trawling for a 'different' graphic novel and really fell for the front cover design. It's an eerie story with morphic forms as monsters rather than big hairy ones! Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Wholeheartedly I give this work a Double Thumbs Up!
This work does not seem like a comic. It attempts a much grander claim to fame. If there was a category called graphic literature then this might be its first occupant. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars At the Mountains of Madness
Very good version of a H.P. Lovecraft classic, the art work is simple but very well drawn with a Tintin feel. Well worth a read for a fan of the man from Providence.
