Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Created by H. P. Lovecraft in 1926, the creature Cthulhu is the focus for most of the stories in this anthology. Each selection is by a different writer and artist, so styles vary. Most are illustrated in muddy, muted, or sepia tones as befits the darkness of the tales, with only one being brightly colored in classic comic-book style, which complements the daylight-above-ground setting of the story. Several of the selections have a classic Twilight Zone feel to them, and a couple are quite humorous—a Law & Order parody, "Arkham SVU" (Spectral Victims' Unit) and a spread entitled "Selections from Lovecraft's Brief Tenure as a...Chocolate Sampler Copywriter," which has some of the author's most wicked prose-style humor in the volume. Older teens and Lovecraft fans will enjoy this collection.—Suanne Roush, Osceola High School, Seminole, FL
