Brown (who co-authored Sidewise and M-theory with Zuda Comic's Dwight L. MacPherson) is actually new to Lovecraft's stories and recently told Newsarama that he took a "crash course" in Lovecraft before settling down to write Frozen Kingdom and counts Shadow over Innsmouth as his favorite tale. The young Lovecraft's world is illustrated by the likes of Renzo Podesta who worked with Brown on the horror anthology, Velvet Rope, and whose art adds an "eerie visual element" to the proceedings.
So what say you Lovecraftian readers -- is this tongue-in-cheek take on the doom and gloom worlds spun by the legendary author a refreshing look at the highly influential mythology or is it almost too silly for adults to enjoy? Would you allow this title on your child's bookshelf? Check out the full interview with Brown over here.
