A few year ago I bought a comic book adapation of H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath. I'm a big Lovecraft fan, particularly of his stuff that's more fantasy than horror. I still remember the day I bought the complete set of Lovecraft stories published by Arkham House. It was my first ever online purchase; alas, the store has since closed.

The comic is fun - it neatly captures the wonder and mystery of Lovecraft's epic fables. I like the everyman aspect of Mock Man, a nice rendering of Lovecraft's own generic men. The thing that I think is coolest is that in the comic book is a URL and email address from 1997, and they still work! The Bits out of Time.
