An adaptation of one of H.P. Lovecraft's most influential works. Staying true to the original work, Swiss writer/artist Michael Zigerlig, narrates the tale with the original prose of three points of view describing the horror of Cthulhu. Generally regarded as Lovecraft's masterpiece, this tale, as with many of Lovecraft's work, influenced generations to come in literature, film, and other mediums. H.R. Giger, famed biomechanical artist and creator of the look of Alien, was also heavily influenced by Lovecraft and he was impressed with this graphic novel that he provides the introduction to this edition. Film director, Brian Yuzna had this to say about Call of Cthulhu. "In his hallucinogenic interpretation of the Lovecraft 'mythos' Michael Zigerlig has realized a fantastic visual obsession. Terrifyingly beautiful. Mesmerizingly decorative. Horror has never looked so good. This Call of Cthulhu stands out as an essential work of Lovecraftian and a visual treat for lovers of art and comics." ---Brian Yuzna

Michael Zigerlig visited the School of Art in Berne, Switzerland where he grew up and still lives. He served an apprentice as a graphic designer and has a passion for Chinese martial arts which he has practiced the last ten years. Always interested in drawing, he brings a sense of design to his artwork. H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu is his first graphic novel project and Michael chose to use Lovecraft's original prose for much of the story rather than adapting the story. Abridged for space considerations, the book allows readers to get a true sense of Lovecraft's voice which Zigerlig does a wonderful job of illustrating. H.R. Giger, the famed biomechanical artist who gave the look to the Alien creatures from the films, was also an influence on Michael and via the Necronomicon I and II, introduced Michael to Lovecraftian lore, wrote the introductory notes and had this to say regarding Zigerlig's graphic novel. "Michael`s artwork has a closed atmosphere which is full of details but kept in simple shapes and forms at the same time. When Michael sent the first pages to me, I was really positively surprised by all it... the drawings, the layout and how he handled one of Lovecraft`s most regarded tales." -- H.R. GigerReview:
