"I read it and reread it, and wept and laughed and trembled with a horror which at times assails me yet."
The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambers' classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. It is a book that draws readers in with an irresistible yet innocent opening act, then drives them insane with the poisonous words of Act 2. It is a book that cannot be suppressed, spreading like a disease from city to city, continent to continent. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Neil Gaiman, and a central reference in the hit TV show True Detective, The King in Yellow is one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. In this dangerously unputdownable graphic novel adaptation, I. N. J. Culbard brings to life a thrilling tale of horror that will make you laugh and cry and tremble with fright… Read at your own risk.
“Culbard deftly leaves the pictures and the dialogue to tell the story, with his deceptively simple firgurework meshing brilliantly with the muted colour palette to create an eerie, unsettling atmosphere that will stay with you long afterwards. Let this enthralling work cast its sinister spell over you.” – SFX Magazine
“It’s beautiful artwork and engrossing prose capturing both imagination and soul, refusing to let go of either until long after the book has been finished” – Mass Movement Magazine
