A tale of two British lads, fresh from dumping Oxford behind, off on a lark through the warm green climes on the lush Irish moors. Who make a wrong move. And take a wrong turn. A very wrong turn.

Writen in 1930 and lost among the flotsam of popular Victorian literature of it's time, William Hope Hodgson's The House On The Borderlands is at once a tale of dark fantasy, disturbing occult and twisted scifi - a classic of dark psychological terror. A tale of a vain, desolate grasp for sanity in the midst of towering madness with a narrative style rivalling the best of Poe and Lovecraft. Hodgson's creates a sinking world of macbre and distorted time with techniques that were beyond his era.
With an introduction by comic legend Alan Moore (The Killing Joke, League Of Extraordinary Gentleman, Watchmen, From Hell and so many more), this ignored classic is given an amazing graphic novel treament. Writer Simon Revelstorke retains the hysteric intensity of the narrative
while artists Ricahrd Corben and Lee Loughridge enhances the menacing atmosphere with an unsettling palette reflecting the rotting psyche.
