A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward: A Graphic Novel - I.N.J. Culbard, H.P. Lovecraft

Pretty much a straight forward telling of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward which is refreshing since everyone else seems to believe they can improve things by messing with or updating Lovecraft's stories for their graphic novels. Nice artwork to go with the story and no padding. The GN actually makes the story easier to follow than the Lovecraft original since the transition of Ward/Curwen is kind of sketchy in the story when you read it for the first time.

If you like this one I can also recommend At the Mountains of Madness: A Graphic Novel by I.N.J. Culbard and H.P. Lovecraft.
