I've become pretty leery of "inspired by Lovecraft" recently. There is too little actual inspiring in most of these works of fiction. This book is better than average. It already has Alan Moore so that generally says something. The artwork is great (great gallery as well). The main protagonists are believable. The story is ultimately a straight "spawn of Cthulhu" type of story but there is enough novelty in the buildup to make the story novel and full of actual suspense. I found the ending a bit disappointing because it does fall into a fairly predictable standard Lovecraft sub-genre.
