The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambers’s classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. It’s 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’s 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, 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.

Editorial Reviews

“A book that’s so deeply in love with language and the unseen doesn’t leave very much for an illustrator to work with. Culbard’s style is well-suited to this difficulty—it’s defined as much by what it doesn’t show as by what it does. Instead of laying on the Victorian gingerbread, Culbard creates spare, almost modernist tableaux.”
