Karl Slominski is an illustrator from Spencerport, NY, who now lives in New York City. He has illustrated Golgotha and and is working on a new graphic novel, Ashes.

Lovecraft fans will want to read Golgotha, about the skull of horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft. This is a  fast-paced story written by Andrew Harrison and the dark expressive illustrations of Karl Slominski. It is set in Lovecraft’s hometown and where many of his stories take place, Providence , R.I. When Lovecraft’s skull is stolen a group of junkies go on a search to locate it. I’m not a graphic novel reader but I am a big Lovecraft fan so that may get me to read this.

The novel includes Brazilian guys that dress as Vampires and a gang of British punk rockers. Along the way dark things dwell in the darkness of Providence that seem out to get the gang looking for the skull, even a coven of Deep Ones who worship the idol of Cthulhu show up. You’ll have to read Lovecraft to find out more about the Cthulhu and The Deep ones.

The novel is receiving good reviews and the Arts Division will have it soon. I’m not a graphic novel reader but I am a big Lovecraft fan so that may get me to read this.
