Caliber To Tackle Both H.P. Lovecraft And Sherlock Holmes In The Same Month

Posted by September 9, 2016 Comment

Caliber Comics is tapping into two popular and esteemed literary worlds this November. Brandon Barrows and Hugo Petrus dive into Mythos: Lovecrafts Worlds while Christopher Sequeira and artists Philip Cornell and J. Scherpenhuizen stalk Sherlock Holmes: The Dark Detective. The Lovecraft graphic novel is an adaptation of eight different lesser known stories while the other graphic novel tells new tales of the world’s greatest detective.

In Mythos: Lovecraft’s Worlds, writer Brandon Barrows and artist Hugo Petrus (Wolverine, Marvel Illustrated, Grayson) adapt eight of Lovecraft’s stories to the comic format, many of them lesser-known and some never before adapted to comics, such as The Curse of Yig and Ibid, a rare humor story!

Though Lovecraft is known as the father of modern horror for his tales of terror, cosmic abominations and of course, his dreaded Cthulhu, he also penned stories of fantasy, science fiction and even humor.

In Sherlock Holmes: The Dark Detective, writer Christopher Sequeira (X-Men, Iron Man) is joined by artists Philip Cornell and J. Scherpenhuizen to present all new tales of the great detective.  The brilliant Holmes is plunged into a case of Gothic terror as he investigates horrific deaths that suggest an improbable monster.  Only Holmes can stop the shadows from swallowing London and only his single remaining friend can stop the shadows from swallowing him.
