Written by Hans Rodionoff; adapted by Keith Giffen; art and cover by Enrique Breccia

An original hardcover graphic novel pairing the writing talents of screenwriter Hans Rodionoff and comics writer Keith Giffen with the exquisite painted art of Enrique Breccia. When young Howard Phillips Lovecraft becomes the reluctant guardian of the Necronomicon, an accursed book that is the doorway to the beyond, his life veers into strange territory. From an odd upbringing through his later success as a weaver of “weird” tales, Lovecraft maintains a tenuous balance between reality and the bizarre nightmares of his “fictional” horror.
