Insta-love. There are only three graphic novels that managed to drawn me in this instantly: Sandman, Fables, and Fell. In fact, Welcome to Lovecraft does remind me of Preludes & Nocturnes, in that they're both intriguing introductions to mysterious worlds and characters, knock you flat with beautiful art - seriously, Bode is a MASTERPIECE in every panel he's in - and leave you hankering for more, NOW, please.
In short, I'm blown away. 6 stars.
