Algernon Blackwood’s The Willows

Algernon Blackwood's The Willows

Algernon Blackwood’s The Willows is a good example of the atmospheric horror of the 1800s despite being published in 1907. Think of the books (not the movies) Dracula and Frankenstein.

I thought the pen and ink drawings were effective in depicting the plot. However, a bit of color would have emphasized the important points of a busy tableau.

If you are a fan of Lovecraftian horror or atmospheric tales in general, you will enjoy this tale. 3 stars.

Thanks to Floating World Comics and Edelweiss+ for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
