The Shadow Out of Time
By I.N.J. Culbard
Paperback, 120 pp, $13.99
Miskatonic University, Arkham, 1908. Professor Nathaniel Peaslee collapses in front of a class of students, only coming to his senses five years later. Horrified to discover that his body has been far from inactive during the intervening period—and plagued by unsettling and outlandish nightmares—Peaslee attempts to piece together the truth behind the missing years of his life. A chilling journey through time, space, and the recesses of the mind, this newly reissued adaptation (in a smaller format, with a foreword by Jeff Lemire and a new cover) gives terrifying form to one of H.P Lovecraft’s final tales.

”A taut, chilling read, well-paced and illustrated with a suitably muted palette.”— The Guardian
”Adapted and illustrated by comics maestro I.N.J. Culbard, [The Shadow Out of Time] is likely to bring the story, and perhaps [Lovecraft] himself, to a whole new generation of readers.”— Pop Matters
