Lights out, everybody.
On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror that it spawned.
HP Lovecraft's Herbert West: Reanimator has been already published in our community.This wonderful story has a significant impact on the 'zombie' genre in general and, specifically, on the modern pop culture. Actually, it belonged to pop culture from the very start, written as a parody of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, an all-time classic, and being serialized by the author. No wonder it underwent an adaptation for the pulp-ish Weird Science magazine in 1950s. And when in 1985 the story has been modernized by Stuart Gordon to become a plot for the movie (attention: not a Reanimator anymore, but a Re-Animator!), it was quite natural.
Equally natural is Lovecraft's involvement into present-day comic book business, with Dynamite Entertainment producing Army of Darkness vs. Re-Animator, inspired both by the original story and the cinematographic Re-Animator.
Here are some comics covers:
I believe next Monday (with Tome back at the wheel) will be more serious.
