    It was the mid 1940 s and things weren t going well for Private eye Hank Flynn He just got out of the war and moved to the mean streets of Arkham Or out of the frying pan and into the fryer Hank has seen terror in the war but that doesn t compare to what he sees when he is hired by a wealthy socialite to find an artist named Pickman Hank s search leads him into a world of witches, ghouls, black magic and straight into the hands of the Innsmouth mafia Hank is up against an evil that he has never [...]

    The detective noir voice owns its pulp cliche niche often making any particular story into a guilty pleasure, yes, but not a standout Then comes PI Hank Flynn, PTSD rattled WWII vet, to buck the trend in 2 very important ways 1 The black and white inked artwork by Patrick McEvoy in this graphic novel is pure stylized pleasure Bonus points must be awarded for melding a couple of images and adding color to create the classic horror movie poster look for the cover 2 Author Josh Finney s balanced in [...]

    H.P Lovecraft s stories continue to influence contemporary tales For instance, the 1926 short story, Pickman s Model, published in the October 1927 issue of Weird Tales, is one such tale that recently inspired Casefile Arkham This new graphic novel is written by Josh Finney, illustrated by artist Patrick McEvoy, edited by Kat Rocha, and published by 01Publishing The black and white edition is an enthralling visual experience that incorporates several elements of the Lovecraft story and evolves i [...]

    Actual review other than OMG this is excellent coming when my fingers warm up For now, I will say that the combination of art and story made this one of the best graphic novels I read last year Creepy, mysterious, and just the thing if you re a Lovecraft fan.

    Solid pulpy riff on LovecraftReally the only complaint I have is that there isn t to the story I blazed through this enjoying pretty much every page, its horrors, mysteries, engaging protagonist and moody, dynamic artwork.

    A fantastic blend of Noir and Lovecraftian nightmare We ve seen Patrick McEvoy s art in big, splash type capacity of the Lovecraft gaming art and it translates better than imaginable to a sequential environment PI Hank Flynn, both through Patrick s visuals and Josh Finney s characterization and dialogue feels both familiar and fresh Finney melds the nightmares with the noir so perfectly I found myself wondering if some of my favorite noir films and the genre in general might not easily be interp [...]

    Taking the Lovecraft story of Pickman s Model and inserting it into a hard boiled noir setting, this graphic novel delivers an original take on what happened to Richard Upton Pickman Hired by May Derleth to find the missing artist, Harry Flynn finds himself drawn into a realm of monsters and sorcery unlike any he knew existed A great read for Lovecraft fans, who want to get a look at the weird fiction from a different perspective.

    Great, evocative black and white art throughout works well for the story Some of the first half of the book is a little rough, but once it evens out it is a solid pulp style read.

    Unnerving Magazine ReviewFull disclosure, I hadn t read a comic book since I was a kid I had some old, even back then old, Howard the Duck and Planet of the Apes comics Of course, Casefile ARKHAM Nightmare on the Canvas isn t quite the same idea as everyday classic comics, but it s not so far different either.I m honestly surprised how much I enjoyed burning through this story The art was great and where the story lacked, and let s face it, too many words and it s pulling out of the comic realm, [...]

    The story moves at a good pace seemed a lot shorter than 120 pages I liked the hard boiled detective vibe, the sexy female sidekick, and the black and white art However, the plot could have been developed better after a promising start The set up was better than the pay off Note This isn t Batman s Arkham.


    Elizabeth

    Great mix of crime noir detective story and Lovecraftian Horror

    Originally posted at amazingstoriesmag 2016 09 O, HP Lovecraft Is there no genre that can t be combined with your stories of cosmic horror In fact, Lovecraft s ability to inspire horrific visions of reality is why we continue to see genre mashups with his mythos even today Such as with today s subject Casefile ARKHAM Nightmare on the Canvas by Josh Finney and Patrick McEvoy.Casefile Arkham is a comic brought to us by the same team who created World War Kaiju, a graphic novel about a Cold War fou [...]
