Cthulhu Tales Omnibus collects several of the first issues of Cthulhu Tales into one big volume (I think the other Cthulhu Tales non-omnibus volumes only have 2 or 3 issues).

The three stars is for the art and creativity. It's a lot of fun to experience Cthulhu in a variety of different settings, from the ultra serious to tongue in cheek.

What kills me, however, is that without fail, every single one of these stories begins with a bang, and trickles off with a whimper. Literally, every single story sets up this great premise, and then fizzles out into a non-ending. OK, sure, LOTS of Lovecraft end with a character simply going mad, but most of the time, it's a final revelation that sends the narrator over the edge. Here, it's like the author was writing the story, realized he only had one page left, and then simply ended it with a two or three panel quick fix. It really sucks, because ANY attempt to come up with a proper ending would be extremely welcome - there are a few that come close, but barely.

Anyway, I'm not one of these purists complaining about a lack of Lovecraft style - I love delving into all worlds Cthulhu, humorous or morose. BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE try to write future stories with actual endings!!!

If your a fan of Lovecraft or just horror in general you'll most likely be pleased by the variety of stories here.

I'm new to H.P. Lovecraft, the Cthulhu Mythos, and graphic novels/comics. I really enjoyed reading these stories and the excellent color artwork on glossy paper. Unlike another reviewer, I had no issue with "bad endings", although there were a couple which I didn't understand. A couple of the stories were quite humorous, and a couple others had endings as good as any short story. I cracked up reading the spread on "Lovecraft as a Chocolate Sampler Copywriter".

My girlfriend, a real Cthulhu fan, can't wait to get her hands on a copy of this, and I myself am looking forward to reading the next volume.

Highly recommended!
