Comic Book Review - Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla - Issue 2 - Action Lab Comics

Written by: John Reilly

Nikola Tesla and H.P. Lovecraft continue their search for answers to find out what may have caused Amelia Earhardt's disappearance.  Before they can go to Lovecraft's school professor, they must deal with a tentacle faced monster in H.P's basement.

The adventure continues as Lovecraft's mother appears to have summoned some sort of tentacled crab monster called a Mi-Go to go after H.P. and Nikola,  We get to see science and magic work together as the two attempt to fight off the creature.  After the creature takes the life of H.P. Lovecraft, dear old mommy resurrects him in front of Tesla.  Tesla has no clue what is going on at this point but knows that he must go on to find Amelia Earhardt so he sticks with H.P.

Our heroes head to Brown University to see one of Lovecraft's old professors.  They are in search of the Necronomicon, a mystical book written by the mad Arab, Abdul Alhazred.  After speaking with the professor(who had no interest in talking to the pushy Lovecraft), Tesla and Lovecraft find out the Necronomicon was sold and is awaiting restoration at the Athenaeum Library.

Tesla, who is now fed up with Lovecraft's rude behavior, decides he will part ways with Lovecraft.  In two different ways, both decide to break into Athenaeum Library to steal the Necronomicon.  Tesla and Lovecraft arrive in the room at the same time but there's a surprise when they arrive.

Okay, so this blog has some spoilers but I didn't want to just give you a yay or nay review.  Of course it's a yes.  It's a fun series and John Reilly, Tom Rogers and Dexter Weeks are putting together something you can pick up and read and enjoy.
