Tharg’s Terror Tales: Necronauts & Love GN
(W) John William Smith
(A) Frazer Irving
"The Necronauts was the first and very possibly favourite job at 2000 AD. I was spoilt by such a well-composed and dramatic script, and this encouraged me to indulge the darker aspects of my illustrative work knowing that the story was rock solid and could take all the horror and weirdness I was capable of throwing at it. It's 11 years later, and I'm as proud of that story as I was the day it first saw print."
“Harry Houdini was friends with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. HP Lovecraft ghost-wrote a horror/escapology story for Houdini. (Imprisoned With The Pharaohs, pulp fans.) Lovecraft and Conan Doyle shared a common debt to the works of Edgar Allan Poe. And Charles Fort? I never could factually connect him to any of the others, but - in a story like this - how could you ever leave out the man they called Prophet of the Unexplained?”
