Bruce, that is just stunning work. Your style is refreshingly original and high effective for this moody, suspenseful narrative. Bravo. Really
great work. Keep us posted as it develops, especially when it is going to be available.

Bruce, welcome to the CR family! Please do let us know when this will be out. I'm a huge fan of HPL and I've been intrigued by this title since I first saw it (over on MySpace). Now that you've given us a good look at it, I'm even more excited! Congratulations on the fine work.

Jon,

Always good to know another HPL fan! Howard will be coming out with Arcana studios this
year and will be a graphic novel. I am very excited about this property.
I know there seems to be alot of HPL stuff coming out in comics, but none like this!
This is Howard Lovecraft like no one has ever seen; an all ages version!
Thanks for your kinds words and it is so nice to be on the boards here!

Just to let you know, Bruce, artist/writer Larry Latham is now doing LOVECRAFT IS MISSING and its just beautiful. He's running on the net, posting a page a week I think,and then when completed will release it as a graphic novel. You may want to google it. You'll be in for a treat.

Coming from someone who has worked with Lovecraft's characters and concepts in both prose and the "graphic narrative" (not to mention living in Lovecraft country), I have to say your work and approach is really impressive.

I've very much looking forward to Howard Lovecraft & The Frozen Kingdom.

Thank Mark!

I think Howard is a very unique take on Lovecraft and his work!
I'm curious what Lovecraft story you did? I'd love to check it out!

It was these three novels wherein I dealt directly with Lovecraft's concepts such as the Shining Trapezhedron, and versions of Nyarlthotep and R'yleh.



For a logline--think of SG-1 squaring off against the Old Ones. There are several other novels in the series that have Lovecraftian overtones. The one below even has Alistair Crowley as a special guest villain.



In graphic novels--





The latter one will be out next month from Transfuzion and although I didn't do the actual scripting, I created the Miskatonic Project characters and provided the basic plot.

I have a couple of more Miskatonic Project graphic novels in the planning stages.

Thanks Mark! That is VERY COOL! I will have to check them out.
Alistair Crowlely as a guest villain, now how cool is that! You
don't get anymore villainous than that guy.
the graphic novels look amazing as well!
When the next one comes out, can you give me a heads up
and I will grab it? Looks great!

I just finished writing the Making of Howard Lovecraft & the Frozen Kingom.
So, if you are interested in the book or simply want to see how comics are
made, I think you might find this interesting.

Feel free to check it out. Here is the link:
