Man, I was really expecting more from this comic. The first few pages were solid, atmospheric and moody, with the art capably reflecting the grotesque fate of Jason by an unknown horror.

After that, things fall apart. Instead of advancing the promising prologue, the book devolves into page after page of stilted and momentum-less dialogue between the remaining friends, seemingly amateur paranormal investigators. Even the last page disappoints, although that might have to do with the art as much as the story. While solidly rendered in the prologue, the art looks less and less professional when it really counts, with little movement and a drab tone that does little to hide the blocky and inconsistent anatomy.

No, I won't be checking out issue 2. Too bad.

This comic was bad all around. I've never read any lovecraft but I'm sure he spinning in his grave at the adaptation. I didn't even bother with the back up of some messageboard handler doing his best Dave Mckean impression.

Deservedly so. Almost as bad as Ultimate Spidey!
