Mark Wheatley to Sing Songs Of Giants

Illustrating Poems By Pulp Giants

Acclaimed creator Mark Wheatley has just announced a new Kickstarter project coming out of ComicMix, LLC: Songs of Giants. This beautiful, new book has Wheatley masterfully illustrating poems by a trio of fiction’s greats: H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard…

According to Wheatley, “Each of these authors is known for the incredible range of their visual imaginations. Worlds and characters came to colourful life in every one of their stories and poems, lingering in the wild imaginations of illustrators and readers alike. There is a long tradition of lovely illustrated books. Often these books are largely text with just a smattering of beautiful illustrations. Songs of Giants goes beyond that and is a feast for the eyes, with illustrations covering every page and featuring artfully placed text.”
