Since his death in 1937,
H. P. Lovecraft and his works have become an overwhelming part of
popular culture. His creation, Cthulhu, has appeared in films, cartoons, video games, music and
virtually all other parts of popular media. However, although many may know Lovecraft’s
creations, few people know the details of his extraordinary life.
Some Notes on a Non-Entity: The Life of H. P. Lovecraft
is a graphic novel
biography of this enigmatic and legendary writer.
Based on years of research into the primary sources regarding Lovecraft’s
life, this graphic novel spans Lovecraft’s youth to his later years. Episodes covered
include his odd relationship with an overpowering mother; his brief sojourn in New York City and
disastrous marriage; the creation of his most amazing tales; and his physically painful decline
to an eventual death while considering himself a complete and utter failure.
