The King in Yellow


"I read it and reread it, and wept and laughed and trembled with a horror which at times assails me yet."

The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambers' classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. It is a book that draws readers in with an irresistible yet innocent opening act, then drives them insane with the poisonous words of Act 2. It is a book that cannot be suppressed, spreading like a disease from city to city, continent to continent.

An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Neil Gaiman, and a central reference in the hit TV show True Detective, The King in Yellow is one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. In this dangerously unputdownable graphic novel adaptation, I. N. J. Culbard brings to life a thrilling tale of horror that will make you laugh and cry and tremble with fright…

Read at your own risk.
