I came to this through the Michael Mann film of the same name. Set in Romania during WW2 it features a group of German soldiers who are sent to guard the mysterious Keep of the title. They soon find themselves at the mercy of supernatural powers beyond their understanding. The film is often described as a flawed masterpiece and the author of the original novel famously disowned it. Here he contributes an introduction where he describes this version as being the film he wishes had been made! The black and white artwork is very good and the text certainly explains many of the unanswered questions of the film. If you liked the film (despite its faults) then you will enjoy this.
