  1. Review from Martha Cornog

    Another epic team-up of real people doing unreal things-Phillips is the “P” in H.P. Lovecraft. The two wordsmiths collaborate as paranormal investigators against an ancient emperor who wants to-of course-rule the world. And he just happens to have a demonic army. The semirealistic preview art shows our author duo armed and ready.-Martha Cornog, “Graphic Novels Prepub Alert,” BookSmack! 7/15/2010 (c) Copyright 2010.

    Review from Grim Blogger

    Poe and Phillips is a recent graphic novel by Jaime Collado and Miguel Cedillo from Arcana Studios that throws Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft into the midst of a horror-adventure quest. Don’t expect an authentic drama with highly refined weird fiction elements. Instead, you’ll see improbable fun and heroic slayers coursing through this tale. Who cares if Poe and Lovecraft didn’t murder a thief, let alone a supernatural being? They’ve never looked tougher with heavy arms.

    Space-time constraints are kicked to the curb as well, allowing this unlikely pair to link up and dust monsters. Here’s what Acrcana’s Poe and Phillips summary has to say:

    Edgar Allen Poe and Howard Phillips Lovecraft were born and raised in different eras. But during each of their times they were both investigators of paranormal affairs and once had a case where they worked together. Searching for the power of a mysterious coin, the unlikely duo find themselves against an ancient emperor who wants to use the coins to conquer the world… throughout all times!

    Expect alternate history horror fantasies like Poe and Phillips to spawn more variants in the coming years. As works by Lovecraft and other weird fiction masters enjoy a renaissance, their tie to digital media means the authors themselves are due to become mythologized more than they already are. Besides, seeing artists like H.P. Lovecraft and E.A. Poe as hardened killers is a lot more interesting than the sensitive, troubled personas they truly exhibited while alive.

    scott – See all my reviews

    This review is from: Poe & Phillips (Paperback)

    Another epic team-up of real people doing unreal things-Phillips is the “P” in H.P. Lovecraft. this is an awesome graphic novel

    Poe and Phillips was a read that takes me back to be being a child and reading the Young Indiana Jones books (yes I did read those). They were books that I loved, books about adventures, and mysteries, and the best parts of the story being how we got there rather than what the mystery actually was. Poe and Phillips is pretty successful in setting up an atmosphere that almost reads like a novel at times rather than a traditional comic book. There is something wonderful about the ability to truly merge two literary forms.

    The story of Poe and Phillips is not something I wish to spoil, because to spoil much more than to say that Poe and Phillips is about a mysterious coin and the possible magical and mythical implications it may pose. The story and the adventure remind me very much of a super natural Sherlock Holmes, and that is honestly fantastic. Any fans of Sherlock Holmes or mystery books in general should check out Poe and Phillips. While this book may not be perfect is does give us comic book fans something we don�t often see. A story that relies just as much on the narrative to push the story as it does the visual. In my opinion many of the comic books out there now use the visual to push the story, and the narrative, well with Poe and Phillips I believe there is a great balance and it�s worth the read.
