How often do you see an H.P. Lovecraft or Cthulhu comic that’s made for all ages? Not too often, that’s for sure! But that’s exactly what Howard Lovecraft and the Three Kingdoms delivers to the reader. It’s a trio of tales that brings the darkness to children and adults alike! Do I have your attention now? Read on to find out more!
As I said above, there are three different stories within this graphic novel, all humorous and highly entertaining. The primary character is a young Howard Lovecraft (you probably deduced that from the title) and, as many are, he is a curious, adventurous boy. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have the most stable home life since his father was sent to an asylum. But it is because of that fact that he is exposed to the dark forces that permeate these tales.

Surfing is one of those sports that can be mind-boggling to watch. With one massive wave, the very best in the world can deliver a beautiful and hypnotic run…or crumble under the powerful water beast in devastating fashion. The fact that these athletes need to not only be incredibly well-balanced and dexterous but that they need to wait for nature’s fury to collaborate with them in order to create the perfect run makes it all the more compelling.
Each year, the planet’s biggest, brightest, and up and coming talents gather at the ultimate proving ground: Oahu’s North Shore in Hawaii. They call it the “7 Mile Miracle” and it’s where the Triple Crown takes place starting around Halloween and ending just before Christmas. Three events to close out each professional surfing season and the highest level of competition among 400 participants in pursuit of eternal glory.

Are you looking for an adventure into a fantastical world with unique creatures you have never seen before? Well if you are you, then should definitely read Howard Lovecraft and the Frozen Kingdom. If you are at all interested in HP Lovecraft stories, than this is definitely the trade for you. It is a dark story with a lighthearted nature about its characters and dialogue and is a very interesting new take on the HP Lovecraft theme.
The adventure starts off as Howard’s mother is unsure as to whether or not Howard should meet his father in the Arkham Sanitarium. Her decision is cut short when Howard is too curious and finds he has to look into the cell and tell his father how much he misses him. Then his father, very clearly disturbed by what he has experienced, warns Howard never to read his journal or go to the world where he visited.
