The case of Charles Dexter Ward : a graphic novel

by Culbard, Ian

Providence, Rhode Island, 1928. A dangerous inmate disappears from a private hospital for the insane, his method of escape baffling the authorities. Only the patient’s final visitor, family physician Dr. Marinus Bicknell Willett – himself a piece of the puzzle – holds the key to unlocking the mystery. A macabre mixture of historical investigation, grave-robbing and bone-chilling revelation, this adaptation artfully lays bare one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most horrifying creations.
