Gr. 9-up. Following books on Poe, Conan Doyle, and H. G. Wells, this fourth volume in the Graphic Classics series lives up to the intent of the series, which is dedicated to reintroducing classic authors of the macabre in comics format. The book includes an introduction by Gahan Wilson, George Kuchar's 1975 comics biography of the early-twentieth-century horror writer, graphic novelized adaptations of several Lovecraft stories, some original comics stories based on Lovecraft lore, and a 36-stanza epic poem, "Fungi from Yuggoth," illustrated by 17 contemporary cartoonists. In all, more than three-dozen artists contributed to this black-and-white album. The cartoonists, many of whom have also worked in other areas--film, commercial art, music, underground comics, teaching--represent many countries. Richard Corben and Rick Geary are American; Dominique Signoret is from France; Gerry Alanguilan is from the Philippines. Artists from England, Denmark, and Italy are also included. As an introduction to Lovecraft, this is fine fare; for teens already enamored of the hallmark American author, the book offers a satisfying array of stylish interpretations. In keeping with Lovecraft's own sensibilities, creepiness, rather than violence, is the running theme. Francisca Goldsmith
