review 1: O traço de Culbard é quase o preciso oposto do barroquismo literário de Lovecraft. Onde a prosa é uma tessitura densa de adjectivos que qualificam o horror a linha de Culbard é de uma elegante simplicidade. O que não diminui o impacto desta história clássica do autor de horror de Providence. É até um curioso contraste, a ilustração simples e a negritude desta história de hediondas heranças e antepassados com insaciável curiosidade pelo sobrenatural.
review 2: Solid adaptation and the artwork was dark and enjoyable - this graphic novel accomplished what it set out to do. I just didn't find that there was anything that had me terrified or on the edge of my seat. The plot was very predictable, despite the little experience that I have had with HP Lo
... morevecraft. I will definitely turn to the regular book adaptions when I want a taste of HP Lovecraft again, as I just couldn't get excited over this graphic adaptation. I think the thing that surprised me the most was when the binding let go partway through the book and the cover fell off. I expected more from this edition with the thick paper and detailed printing. less

I guess that will teach me to read graphic adaptations instead of the original novel itself.
Read it at the library. So so, vampirish undead kind of story, but it did not move me.
Cool art, creepy story, brought interest for reading the original Lovecraft story.
Nicely done graphic novel adaptation of Lovecraft‘s novel.
The art is good .. Story meh!
