*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Despite the warnings of the locals, two friends embark on a canoe trip down the Danube River only to find unfathomable creatures.
Not only does the art remind me of Junji Ito but the story – a short story by Algernon Blackwood (that I will read at some point) – has some major Lovecraftian themes with the unknowable, incomprehensible evil that is ancient beyond measure and cannot be defeated. I love how the art accentuates how otherworldly everything is and the disturbing events taking place.
I can’s speak to the accuracy to the original story but I liked this. A short and to the point horror story. 4 out of 5.
