Over the years, the veracity of what is referred to here has been accused and questioned. It has been said that it is but a mere imaginative conception of Edgar Allan Poe and Howard Phillips Lovecraft, original sources of such shocking tales.
Visions so disturbing that only a mind as sharp and chimerical as that of the great visual scribe Richard Corben could capture.
SMASH and Marvel Comics Mexico brings you Marvel Deluxe: La Guarida del Horror, a masterpiece where Richard Corben brings to life the stories of two classics of the horror genre, Edgar Allan Poe and Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
