    A unique graphic novel, interesting on multiple levels

    This book is one of a possible comic book series that took an X-Files meets Cthulhu aspect to the Lovecraft mythos. This particular comic adapted "The Whisperer In Darkness", one of my favorite Mythos stories, and did a commendable job with it. The highlight of the book is an adaptation of "Whisperer" itself partway through. The artwork in that section is very detailed and distinctive, and is so good that it could easily stand on its own merits. The rest of the comic is quite well drawn and is very action-based, but never forgets the importance of keeping secrets in a Lovecraft adaptation. The retro-style coloring adds to the period feel of the story. Extra sections at the end of the book provide interviews with the artists and a fascinating glimpse at abandoned plans for a Hounds of Tindalos adaptation in the same vein. Definitely worth a look if you are a Lovecraft or Cthulhu Mythos fan.
