Casefile: ARKHAM: Nightmare on the Canvas (Horror, Occult, Noir, Mystery)
The series Jonathan Maberry (NYT Times Bestselling Author of KILL SWITCH and V-WARS) calls “A wickedly entertaining noir mystery spin on Lovecraft’s cosmic horror…’ Casefile: Arkham is perfect for fans of The Dresden Files and Hellblazer.”
The year is 1946. The place is the most cursed city on Earth—Arkham, Massachusetts (a.k.a. the heart of Lovecraft country). Hank Flynn is a down on his luck private eye whose fate is inextricably linked to the bizarre and arcane underworld that exists in Arkham’s shadows. Haunted by the memories of his time in the war, and plague with visions of a nightmare world that boils at the edges of our perception, Flynn is fated to peel away the thin veil of reality and confront H.P. Lovecraft’s most enduring horrors (whether he likes it, or not). And things only get worse for Flynn when a wealthy (and beautiful) uptown socialite hires him to track down an artist by the name of Pickman. What begins as a simple missing persons case leads Flynn down a dark path of flesh eating ghouls, vengeful witches, and the notorious Innsmouth mafia.
2016 Ghastly Award Nominee for Best OGN and Best Inker Patrick McEvoy
…the dark, mesmerizing graphic novel that fandom has needed for a long time. A fresh new series of what promises to be a staple in the noir fan’s library behind a strong voice in both a literary and an artistic sense. The characters were beautifully created, vivid and plausible. I also loved the dialogue; as snappy, wry and acerbic as one could hope from the best hard-boiled detective story.
–Amazing Stories Magazine
Casefile: Arkham succeeds where so many genre mashups fail in that both genres being combined are executed with absolute integrity. Finney and McEvoy make sure their respective recipes for detective fiction and Lovecraftian horror taste as they should before throwing both into a burbling cauldron from which rise the engrossing (and gross) adventures of Hank Flynn, P.I. Let this book scratch your itch for cosmic horror and hardboiled noir, and you’ll leave with permanent scars. -Phil Hester (The Flash, Wonder Woman)
Casefile: Arkham blends the best of old school noir with mind-bending horror. It’s the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup effect. Two great tastes that taste great together. If that doesn’t peak your interest, I don’t know what will. –HorrorTalk
I can’t say enough good things about this book. The story is good, the characters are deep and realistic and the art is beautiful. Casefile: Arkham is a work of art and a good example of how art and great storytelling can be combined to make the perfect graphic novel. –HorrorAddicts.net
The usage of Lovecratian monsters/ghouls is neither underplayed nor overplayed. They’re given fantastic build-up that when the big climax happens it’s extra effective. In a story like this, a careful balance between showing and not showing them is the goal, and it’s certainly achieved. – Daniel Alvarez / UnleashTheFanboy.com
This is a really amazing book, with a lot of really cool references and hidden meanings. If you don’t know them, you’ve got a really good story. If you do know them, you’ve got a really amazing story. There are certainly more of them than I would have expected…but they did keep my eyes glued to the pages, looking for more. The plot itself is really interesting with supernatural ghouls and real magick (with a “k”) being explored. This is definitely up my creepy alley. It’s definitely worth the read, so give it a read as soon as you can… –ComicWow.com
this book is a tonal achievement the likes of which is staggering, especially when you consider the elegant simplicity and relative ease with which creators Josh Finny and Patrick McEvoy find the overlap between the dark, rain-soaked alleys of Noir and the darker, blood-streaked monoliths of Lovecraft –Joup Magazine
