A comic book adaptation of one of Lovecraft's early stories. Harley Warren is an expert on violent criminals and assists the FBI in their profiling and pursuit of criminals who tend to be on the bizarre side. Warren believes in exploring the darker side of man, especially those who seek to live in the shadows of rmalcy. When Warren reads The Necromicon that can reveal the darkest and oldest mysteries of the stygian unkwn, Warren wastes time packing up his reluctant chronicler and assistant, Randolph Carter, to explore the site. In addition to the comic adaptation of the story, the original H.P. Lovecraft story is also included in this volume.
