RAT GOD #1-5 (Richard Corben)

En février 2015, l’artiste Richard Corben lancera son nouveau projet chez Dark Horse: Rat God. Dans cette mini-série en cinq chapitres, l’auteur combine son amour pour les œuvres de Lovecraft avec les légendes des natifs américains.

*Alors qu’il cherche à mieux connaitre sa copine amérindienne Kito Hontz, le jeune étudiant de New England Clark Elwood s’apprête à réveiller toutes les horreurs qui peuplent la foret d’Arkham. *

[quote]I reread many of my favorites (in the hopes that some of his style might “rub off” into mine – good luck with that!) S.T. Joshi’s “Lovecraft, A Life” was very enlightening about many aspects of the writer. I also wanted to touch on the racism that colored much of his writing. This may seem alien to modern readers but it was actually common for that time period.

There are a large number of diverse groups of Native Americans called American Indians. I narrowed my researches down to several particular tribes of the American and Canadian Northwest, all with different costumes, languages, names and customs. In one passage, one of my characters “speaks” in Indian sign language when it was important to be quiet.[/quote]
