    Personal taste here, but I found some of the artwork actually made parts of it tricky to interpret. Horror grandmaster H. As he searches for the origin of the swine-things, the man finds a pit beyond the gardens where a river descends into the earth. January 1, Chris One of my favorite things about this adaptation is the artwork - the style reminds me quite a lot of old EC Comics The Vault of Horror, Tales from the Crypt, and so on. Otherworldly dimensions are a common theme in this book. The protagonist is horrified by the attacks he suffers and the things he sees, but the creeping horrors that keep occurring have no apparent origin and the protagonist never seeks an explanation for these events.

    I enjoyed Hodgson's writing. The protagonist is horrified by the attacks he suffers and the things he sees, but the creeping horrors that keep occurring have no apparent origin and the protagonist never seeks an explanation for these events.

It does have the redeeming quality of having a sympathetic mastiff dog named Pepper, and stories are always better with "good" dog heroes :- Corben is Hate to admit that I had never even heard of William Hope Hodgeson before reading this.

    January 1, Chris One of my favorite things about this adaptation is the artwork - the style reminds me quite a lot of old EC Comics The Vault of Horror, Tales from the Crypt, and so on. Revelstroke updated Hodgson's initial "manuscript discovery" frame to The House on the Borderland book, and while he made an effort to retain most of the original plot and dialogue, excepting the very last page, the climax is purely Revelstroke's invention. A hypothetical example, of such overuse, just so you might understand, could be, in fact, this very sentence that you are reading, at present time. But when murder turned her world upside down, the statuesque soprano found herself confronted by an insufferably arrogant bug city detective who had the nerve to suspect her. As the title of the book hints, it is a "house on the borderland", a portal to other dimensions and serves as author Hodgson's means of transporting its owner the Recluse and readers of the story over vast distances of space and time. He's got a unique vision and it works so well in this particular story.
