083 – Geek Life – Pickman’s Model

Pickman's ModelThis week we spotlight Kim Holm’s incredible adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s short story Pickman’s Model. Being big Lovecraft fans around here we jumped at the opportunity to cover Kim’s work. This graphic novel adaptation of one of Lovecraft’s best is totally excellent. Kim’s vision of Pickman’s world is truly something to behold. The thick inky blackness, frayed lines and fevered pitch of his work is an experience you wont want to miss. You can purchase yourself a copy of  Pickman’s Model on IndiePlanet and read it for free on FreeComics.no. Be sure to like Kim’s facebook page facebook.com/DUHHfans.
