H.P. Lovecraft's Worlds - Volume Two
Writer Steven Philip Jones takes the Lovecraft classic tales and while remaining true to the source, brings them into the modern age which can sometimes make the horror even more terrifying. The five stories in Volume Two are "Dagon”, the U.S.S. Augustus is a nuclear submarine, its crew is unaccustomed to picking up castaways, especially on uncharted islands in the middle of the Atlantic. But that is where they find Emma Loveless. "Arthur Jermyn", the Jermyns have lived in their Gothic estate in Cambridgeshire for centuries with a cursed, black history of murder and blood. Until the birth of Arthur Jermyn. "Picture in the House", Lorraine Claude is fascinated with the morbid and weird, but a sudden thunderstorm drives her to the arms of a very friendly and very old cannibal. "The Statement of Randolph Carter", Harley Warren is an expert on violent criminals. When Warren reads a book about a place that can reveal the darkest mysteries of the stygian unknown, Warren packs up and takes his reluctant assistant, Randolph Carter, to explore the site. "Music of Erich Zann", each night when astronomer Max Finn comes home, an old man plays haunting melodies on his violins. Melodies that plague Finn’s dreams and give him nightmares about a cosmic land ruled by Nyarlathotep, the messenger of the elder gods.
These tales are illustrated by comic artists Sergio Cariello (MARVEL’s Deadpool, Captain America), Christopher Jones (DC’s Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!), Aldin Baroza (Family Guy), Rob Davis (Star Trek), and Wayne Reid (El Cid).
