It’s really difficult to talk about At the Mountains of Madness without spoiling the story. So if you’ve never read it, go buy the book and come back and read this post later.
“Six feet end to end, three and five-tenths feet central diameter, tapering to one foot at each end. Like a barrel with five bulging ridges in place of staves. Lateral breakages, as of thinnish stalks, are at equator in middle of these ridges. In furrows between ridges are curious growths – combs or wings that fold up and spread out like fans… which gives almost seven-foot wing spread. Arrangement reminds one of certain monsters of primal myth, especially fabled Elder Things in [the] Necronomicon.”

Coming back to The Elder Things – the brain was nothing more than a cauliflower even if it was a brain more advanced than our own. All hopefully culminating in something that would likely, ironically, put you off your dinner.
I.N.J. Culbard’s graphic novel adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness is out today from all good bookshops. It can also be order from our online store for £10.49.
The author’s first signing will be at Leeds’ Thought Bubble Festival on Saturday 20th November, when he’ll take requests to draw any monster from Lovecraft’s Necronomicon on the title page at no extra cost. Don’t say we don’t give you anything.
