Okay, H.P. Lovecraft fans, get your cyclopean engines started as Boom! Studios has announced a four issue mini-series based on the Necronomicon religious text featured in many of Lovecraft’s horror tales.
In August Boom! Studios will release Necronomicon written by William Messner-Loebs, with art by Andrew Ritchie. The company has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue, which might cause some of you night terrors, and is sure to get the religious people all up in arms.
“Lovecraft believed – and he was right – that the scariest things are those least understood. Thus he kept everything as vague as he could – the mythos, the monsters, even the horrid and grisly fates of his heroes,” said NECRONOMICON writer William Messner-Loebs. “Well, my job, given me by the esteemed BOOM!, is to describe, explicate, explain and anatomize said book and lay its mysteries bare, all whilst causing as much havoc as I can.”
