Lovecraft, which is also known as the master of modern horror. His works In his famous tales of horror, H.P.

This Graphic Novel is an adaption of one of the most regarded tales from H.P. Lovecraft, which is also known as the master of modern horror. His works inspired artists like H.R. Giger, who wrote the foreword for this comic adaption. An adaptation of one of H.P. Lovecraft's most influential works. Staying true to the original work, Swiss writer/artist Michael Zigerlig, narrates the tale with the original prose of three points of view describing the horror of Cthulhu. Generally regarded as Lovecraft's masterpiece, this tale, as with many of Lovecraft's work, influenced generations to come in literature, film, and other mediums. H.R. Giger, famed biomechanical artist and creator of the look of Alien, was also heavily influenced by Lovecraft and he was impressed with this graphic novel that he provides the introduction to this edition. Film director, Brian Yuzna had this to say about Call of Cthulhu. "In his hallucinogenic interpretation of the Lovecraft 'mythos' Michael Zigerlig has realized a fantastic visual obsession. Terrifyingly beautiful. Mesmerizingly decorative. Horror has never looked so good. This Call of Cthulhu stands out as an essential work of Lovecraftian and a visual treat for lovers of art and comics." ---Brian Yuzna

    ❝ The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of human mind to correlate all its contents. ❞ I've always wondered how one could adapt Lovecraft's stories effectively into a graphic novel. What sets Lovecraft apart from other writers is his prose: The way he manipulates words to dance around as he weaves his dark tales. Some people find this as overdramatization and others find it attractive. I belong to the latter category. But would the story work if we take away ❝ The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of human mind to correlate all its contents. ❞ I've always wondered how one could adapt Lovecraft's stories effectively into a graphic novel. What sets Lovecraft apart from other writers is his prose: The way he manipulates words to dance around as he weaves his dark tales. Some people find this as overdramatization and others find it attractive. I belong to the latter category. But would the story work if we take away Lovecraft's prose? It might work. But it wouldn't be perfect. And I think Illustrator Michael Zigerlig believes so too. Zigerlig used the abridged version of the original prose along with his STUNNING and CRAZY illustrations to bring life to the story of the most beloved elder god of all time. The complex illustrations complement the Lovecraft's unconventional prose perfectly. Personally, I think this version of Lovecraft's story is better than the original because this version curtails most of the redundant narration and adds spice to the story with mind-bending art work. To check out more illustrations from this book, you can go to Zigerlig DeviantArt profile. He has even provided some brilliant colorized samples of his artwork there. (I personally prefer the black and white version) http://michaelzigerlig.deviantart.com Recommended to every single Cthulhu fan out there!

    Çizimlerinin biraz fazla kalabalık olması haricinde gayet güzel bir çizgi romandı. Lovecraft'ın Cthulhu'nun Çağrısı adlı hikayesini okuması keyifli bir şekilde görselleştirmişler. Cthulhu da gerçekten ürkünç olmuş cidden.

    The art is phenomenal and really adds a lot to the classic tale. The only thing that bothered me was that the font was sometimes difficult to decipher. But it’s possible that was part of the point.

    This is a great illustrated adaptation of one of Lovecraft's most important stories. Rather than trying to rearrange Lovecraft's words into word balloons, Michael Zigerlig puts them in captions and draws from them the inspiration for his dark and disturbing images. I daresay that I don't believe Lovecraft has ever been brought to life visually as effectively as this. The story is only slightly abridged with Zigerlig giving it something of a more conclusive ending for the narrator with his artwork This is a great illustrated adaptation of one of Lovecraft's most important stories.

    Call of CthzZzzzzZzzzz Well, I'm big fan of Lovecraft's lore, but it's hard to find anything really good in it. And that sadly includes the master itself. In this book you can get psychadel-ish drawing, old B&W style, and kind of narrative that actually isn't that catching. Too much text, actually. When you got into reading, you'll went distracted by images and vice versa. I wish it would, but it's not working for me and finishing the comics book was (sadly) a struggle.

    عودة جديدة للعوالم اللافكرافتية، ومع واحدة من أحجارها اﻷساس، باقتباس مصور وحشي في صوره وزخرفاته وحلياته، كأنك صوبت نظرك بمنظارك المشكال (الكلايدوسكوب) على بقعة من بقاع الجحيم، أو أن تتخيل نفسك وإنت تقع في هاوية لا قرار لها.

    aynı adımları deneyerek summon etmeyi denedim; mamafih, işe yaramadı. lovecraft keşke adının öngördüğü üzere kitap değil de sevgi yapsaymış bunu yazacağı kadar.
