About the Book:

In this Dark Tale, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming...

H. P. Lovecraft’s story of supernatural monsters deep in the Pacific, told in graphic novel format, will keep you on the edge of your seat. 

More than 100 pages of illustrated horror and adventure await! 

Henry Wilcox can’t ignore his dreams of an enormous green monster calling to him from an underwater alien city. 

He seeks the help of Professor Angell, who dies suddenly, leaving a box of research on the subject for his nephew, Francis.

Notes and Opinions:  This one just didn't work out for me at all. I wanted to like it but I felt like I was missing something.  It was a very weird book and I have never read the orginal title so I think that if you have read the orginial book that you might enjoy this one. But if you are like me who has not this one might go over your head.
