While I enjoyed the original version more, this wasn't bad. There are details in the artwork that you might not notice the first time around, so it's nice to take another look at it every once in a while. I really enjoyed the story. The reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because the artwork tends to look a little goofy at times. The humans all have faces like wrinkled putty (Larry Talbot, on the middle of the cover is an example of this, although there are more awful looking examples in the book itself - the characters around him on the cover don't look that way inside the book). However, the quirky artwork usually works fine with the story, and the werewolf looks wonderful. I prefer Neil Gaiman's orignal version (just a story, not in comic book form, you can find it in _Smoke and Mirrors_), but this was nice to read and look at, even if I didn't agree with their interpretation of what Larry Talbot looks like.

Lawrence Talbot, werewolf, is deep in trouble. The good people of Innsmouth are looking to end the world again, and are more than willing to sacrifice anything or anyone to do so.
While the eerie but lumpy artwork is certainly dismissable, Neil Gaiman's story is crisp and entertaining. Even though it lacks the depth of Sandman or the horror of Babycakes, Larry Talbot's story is a fun, five-minute read.

Fun, Lovecraftian throwaway. Aug. 10 2009
By Cody C. Gaisser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Only The End of the World Again is a very brief supernaturally-themed graphic novel (more of a "short story" really) by Sandman/Coraline author Neil Gaiman. It isn't particularly substantial, but it was quite fun to read. The art is globular and cartoonish with wavy outlines contributing to a a very deranged sense of perspective (more like Squiggle-Vision than the art on the cover!). The plot involves a werewolf and a kraken.
troy nixey = MEANT to illustrate lovecraft! Nov. 21 2008
By N. Huston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
the tentacles, man, LOOK AT THE TENTACLES! his distortions of face and form, too, seem to me a perfect fit for 'eerie' horror, and homages numerous classics in the horror comic genre as well - basil wolverton, dick briefer... the story, adapted from an original short by neil gaiman, moves briskly and holds up well compared to the original. greta stuff, a fun read, and a nice add to any gaiman or lovecraft collection!
Wolfman vs. Cuthulu April 24 2005

Format: Paperback
Gaiman writing a story about a werewolf (Larry Talbot, hehe) in Innsmouth (ala H.P. Lovecraft). It doesn't get better than that.
