H P Lovecraft's "The Hound"



This is from SKULL COMIX# 4 in 1972, an "all-Lovecraft" issue. Very good stuff. "The Hound" is adapted by Jack Jackson ("Jaxon") one of the earliest underground cartoonists. His style became less cartoony and more naturalistic later on as his topics shifted to tales from Texan history. It works fine here, the occasional goofy touches and the mundane dialogue don't take away from the Lovecratianness.. the Lovecraftiness.. you know, the Lovecraft tone.
