    • H.P. Lovecraft Jason Bradley Thompson

      Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.Lovecraft s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity Lovecraft s protagonists usually achieve the mirror opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.Although Lovecraft s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

    • I first encountered the artwork of Jason Thompson through a poster he created for the Lamentations of the Flame Princess role-playing game. I was immediately struck by the simplicity of his central figure, the "mock man," set against the finely-honed detail work one sees in his settings, costume, and creatures. His work is truly unique, cartoonish, but compelling. So when I first saw the cover of his hardbound The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath & Other Stories, I knew it wouldn't be long befo [...]


    • Relectura 22/01/2018: Comentarios superfluosEn general me ha gustado más, tal vez porque he leído más cosas desde 2015 y puedo apreciar las historias de otra manera. Antes me sentía fascinada por la prosa de este hombre, me preguntaba como alguien podía escribir tan bien y llegar tan profundamente con un puñado de palabras entretejidas. Este hombre tocó mi alma, ciertamente. Ahora esa sensación es mucho más compleja, y ha madurado. La eterna fascinación por sus palabra sigue estando ah [...]


    • In all the flurry of attention that Lovecraft gets these days, no one ever talks about his Dreamlands stories enough. They're very different from his other stuff, in their way, but they show a window into his imagination in a way that his "straighter" stories couldn't match.Jason Bradley Thompson's art is perfect for adapting them to sequential form. His style is simultaneously cartoony and Byzantine, with an underground aesthetic that gives the whole thing the feeling of some forgotten treasure [...]


    • My Kickstarter project, finally. Signed and with my name forever enshrined as a contributor.I'm not a big fan of Lovecraft's Dream Cycle stories, but the graphic novel is a great vehicle for making those stories come alive in a way that I think words never can. For someone to read the stories and to come away with an effective concrete vision and execute it, as Thompson has, is no mean feat. The artwork is exquisitely detailed and it took me a long time to read this because I wanted to linger ov [...]


    • Once upon a time, Jason Thompson adapted HP Lovecraft's The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath as a comic book He also illustrated some other HPL stories: The Strange High House in the Mists, Celephais, and The White Ship. I don't know whether the latter was ever published anywhere besides his website, but the former went out of print fairly quickly.Thompson launched a Kickstarter to print all of these stories in one hardcover edition with updated art. The result is a beautiful, beautiful book that a [...]


    • Transcendently beautiful, Jason Bradley Thompson's extraordinary graphic renditions of four H.P. Lovecraft classics (The White Ship, Celephais, The Strange High House in the Mist, and the eponymous The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath) is an absolute must-have, must-read, and must-cherish book. The stories are rendered in stunning detail, but eschew realism in favor of a welcoming, dare I say it, DREAMLIKE quality that breathes new life into old stories and showcases the timeless nature of the sour [...]


    • Me pasa cada vez que releo algo de Lovecraft que en un primer momento se me encoge el morro, como si algo no terminara de cuadrar. Me cuesta asumir de nuevo su estilo, sus repeticiones, su adjetivación; pero siempre gana el poder de los mundos que aguardan en el libro, la fuerza imaginativa que despliega en sus relatos y que es como echar hojarasca en una hoguera para avivarla. Es cierto que ya me cuesta entusiasmarme con estas historias, pero eso es problema mío, cualquiera que tome estos rel [...]


    • I read this as individual issues, back in the day, and am OMG SO EXCITED I'M PEEING MY PANTS!!! to see this collected in hardcover. YES YES YES![Homer Simpson drooling sound, unto death]


    • Este relato, el más extenso que escribió Lovecraft (a menos que lo consideremos una novela corta), pertenece al ciclo de historias de terror onírico protagonizadas por Randolph Carter. Antes que en “La búsqueda en sueños de la ignota Kadath”, Carter ya había aparecido, con mayor o menor protagonismo, en “La declaración de Randolph Carter” (1919), “El innombrable” (1923) y “La llave de plata” (1926). En este primer grupo, Lovecraft ponía las bases de esta dimensión parale [...]


    • While I'm a sucker for virtually all things H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath was that one story I couldn't see through to the end. Lovecraft's addiction to detail and adjectives worked with so many things, and I couldn't swallow them for a setting of a wistful chaos in Dreamland.Enter this book, which my graphic novel-loving girlfriend picked up for me. There are no words. Well, there are fewer words than I can usually muster anyway. What's most important to say is that with the [...]



    • Lovecraft is a difficult writer to adapt to the graphic form (despite decades of people trying.) His stories are often about things beyond the human mind and senses to conceive and depicting them almost inevitably undercuts them. His Dream Cycle stories are a different case however, as they are less horror and more fantasy, and thus tend to depict fabulous sights rather than hint at horrible things in the shadows. The illustator made the right call in adapting "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath" [...]


    • A fascinating graphic novel which adapts H.P. Lovecraft's hallucinogenic dream fantasies into the art of the unfathomable. There is more than just a hint of paranoid delusion here, tempered by the acknowledgement that in the world of dream there is no dependable reality and that therefore whatever comes next is what makes sense, even if in the world of the non-dreamer it might be over the edge of sanity.Jason Bradley Thompson's art is admirable and evokes the Lovecraft's dreamscape with style an [...]


    • A gorgeous, unlikely comic adaptation of four stories from Lovecraft's "Dream Cycle." Less familiar to many (as opposed to the "Cthulhu Mythos"), the Dream Cycle to me retains a sense of mystery and wonder in part because of its breathtaking scope. This visual adaptation is striking and lovely and unexpected, bringing life to Randolph Carter's adventures through the dream lands in a manner both wistful and engaging. When the cats of Ulthar leap to Carter's rescue from their perch on the moon, I [...]


    • Kickstarterina toteutettu paksu kovakantinen kokoelma Jason Thompsonin sovituksia unitarinoista, nimitarina julkaistiin käsittääkseni (pien)lehtinä ja loput netissä. Kerronta rullaa uskollisesti ja piirroksissa on mukavan yksityiskohtaista luovuutta, joka mainiosti kompensoi hiukan jäykkää underground-tussityyliä. Tietty uurastaminen ja käsityöläisyys kyllä välittyy, siinä suhteessa kenties jopa sukua sille tunnetummalle sarjakuvia piirtävälle Thompsonille. Ainoa mistä saattais [...]


    • This book deserves a lot more recognition!It is a collection of short stories and the long tale "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath".Thompson has produced a labour of love and it shows. The detailed map on the end boards is almost worth the price of admission. Thompson has made one of my favorite Lovecraft tales come to life in a way I didn't think possible. His ink drawings are amazingly detailed and accurate to the words of the original text.I thoroughly enjoyed this and can't wait for more Tho [...]


    • I first came across of the work of Jason during the movie The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath. I was already familiar with the story and was amazed how his drawings could overcome many lovecraftian problems many other people need to overcome when filming his work. So when the occasion arised about funding this book as a Kickstarter, how could I not oblige?It is a great book for a great story, and I sincerest would recommend it, especially for those who are already familiar with the work of Lovecra [...]


    • The Dream Quest Of Unknown Kadath is the longest story but it's less than half this book. I read all the other stories first then went back to it and frickin frack me if it was just impossible to get through. Lots of the other stories are truly great, on a whole other level than literature, but I can't get through half of The Dream Quest Of Unknown Kadath.


    • The main story and the final story were both kind of cool, though all are full of Lovecraft's often lacking writing style. As usual, there is a fantastic sense of brooding and unknown terror, and little else to recommend.



    • Dreamquest is my favorite Lovecraft story, in part because it ties much of the lore together, but more because of the fantastic places and vistas that are only hinted at in his other works.



    • Some pieces were great, and the level of detail was incredible, but overall I found the artwork very distracting from the story and really struggled to get through it.


    • Wow If you like Lovecraft, and are even remotely into comics, you have got to check this out. Truly a labor of dark love.
