    And speaking of Lovecraft, you don't need to know his work to enjoy this series. All you need is a love of great writing and fantastic art"and maybe just a touch of madness. Read Full Review

    The artwork that brings the outlandish colours and tentacles to life has never faultered throughout the series – as far as we can remember – and this issue keeps up with the high standard. Even without knowing the story, Weird Detective is an impressive book that stands out visually. Read Full Review

    In conclusion Weird Detective #5 is a great story and finale to an amazing series. Fred, Guiu have done what most Lovecraftian tale fail to do and appeal to a larger audience while still appealing to the diehard Lovecraft fans. Read Full Review

    I am both sad and happy that the series has wrapped up. Happy because it was enjoyable and fun to read, and sad because it is over (and I wanted more of the sarcastic pet cat). If you have been a fan of the previous issues then this one wont let you down, it is a great finale to the series. So go out and pick up your copy today! Read Full Review
