Lost Art Of Ah Pook Here HC Images From The GN
By: Malcolm McNeill
The Lost Art Of Ah Pook gathers the visual elements from the legendary unfinished collaboration between William S. Burroughs and artist Malcolm McNeill. Begun in the early 1970′s, Ah Pook was to be a meditation on time, power, control and corruption that evoked the Mayan codices and specifically, the Mayan god of death, Ah Pook. Although the work was never completed, Malcolm McNeill created over a hundred paintings, illustrations and sketches for the book, and these are finally seeing the light of day in The Lost Art of Ah Pook. Even in a context divorced from the words (Burroughs’ text will not be included), they represent a stunning precursor to the graphic novel form to come. Also included is a historical essay chronicling the long history of Burroughs’ and McNeill’s work together.
B.P.R.D.: 1948 #1 (MIKE MIGNOLA VARIANT COVER)

Now the B.P.R.D. launches an investigation of an atomic-fueled space-travel experiment that’s apparently unleashed horrific monsters in the Utah desert.
* Dark Horse Horror gets under your skin.
The end of the secret origins trilogy!
Praise for B.P.R.D.: 1947:
“It has aspects of pulp, horror (of course), and historical fiction. All while maintaining the same tone and mood. The continuity maintained over years now of stories is very impressive, and “1947” never wavers in that execution.” —Comic Book Resources
