It sits astride two worlds — our bleak world of colorless normality and the realms of cosmic horror where reason may yet have a last chance to conquer fear. Forgotten until now, the House on the Borderland awaits you. THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND, a 96-page VERTIGO graphic novel by comics legend and illustrator Richard Corben (HELLBLAZER, Heavy Metal, Den) and scripter Simon Revelstroke, is available in a softcover edition for the first time. Their work is based on The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson, a timeless tale initially published in 1908 that tells a story of supernatural paranoia blending science fiction, fantasy and Lovecraftian horror in a potent mix. Featuring an introduction by comics legend Alan Moore that offers an appreciation of Hodgson's contribution to the horror pantheon, THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND is a must-read for connoisseurs of the genre, offering a phantasmagoric tour of the razor-thin line between fantasy and reality, life and sleep, hope and death.
