A comic book adaptation of one of Lovecraft's early stories. Harley Warren is an expert on violent criminals and assists the FBI in their profiling and pursuit of criminals who tend to be on the bizarre side. Warren believes in exploring the darker side of man, especially those who seek to live in the shadows of normalcy. When Warren comes across the book The Necronomicon, a book that can reveal the locations of the darkest and oldest mysteries of the stygian unknown, Warren wastes little time packing up his reluctant chronicler and assistant, Randolph Carter, to explore one such site. This Lovecraft tale is adapted by award winning comic writer Steven Philip Jones (CALIBER's Sherlock Holmes, Dracula). Lovecraft is considered one of America's most innovative and popular American horror writers. The master of the weird tale during the first decades of the 20th Century until his premature death in 1937, Lovecraft's distinctive style and canon of work has influenced many authors. Jones takes the classic tale and while remaining true to the source, brings them into the modern age which can sometimes make the horror even more terrifying. This tale is illustrated by Christopher Jones who has worked on DC's Justice League, Batman Strikes, and Young Heroes in Love comic book series. In addition to the comic adaptation of the story, the original H.P. Lovecraft story is also included in this volume.
