See full description
With creepy, spooky art, and sinister, suspenseful text, I. N. J. Culbard brings new life--and death--to H. P. Lovecraft's psychological mystery of forbidden knowledge and pursuits. Young Charles Dexter Ward is fascinated by the history of Joseph Curwen, his wizard ancestor of the 17th century. Curwen was notorious for haunting graveyards, practicing alchemy, and never aging Ward can't help his fixation: He himself looks just like Curwen. In an attempt to duplicate his ancestor's cabbalistic feats, he resurrects the fearsome Curwen . . . and then the true horror begins

Praise for The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

"Culbard triumphs in bringing to life a story that isn't inherently visual.... Another success by one of the best modern translators of the endlessly popular scribe." --Booklist

"This is really the best way to enjoy Lovecraft." --Boing Boing

"Culbard brings the classic tale to life, and his work will very likely entice readers who enjoy the macabre to seek out the original novel." --PublishersWeekly.com

"If you're looking for chills, you'll find them here." --Scripps Howard News Service

"Culbard illustrates this tale of life everlasting--replete with ancient lore and sinister networks crossing the boundaries of reason, morality and science--in appropriately dark and lurid colors." --The Milwaukee Shepherd Express

"It's been something of a renaissance for H.P. Lovecraft comics over the last couple of years thanks to SelfMadeHero." --Houston Press "Art Attack" blog

"We're giving it an ichor-dripping thumbs up." --The Austin Chronicle "Under the Covers" blog
