Hodgson Comic!


Blog reader Tim Tylor sent in a link to a blog that reproduces a 10 page adaptation of Hodgson’s “The Derelict”! I’ve often been mystified that WHH has not been adapted more in comics and other media so am very happy to see this. Unfortunately, near as I can tell, the blog does not credit where this was printed or who did the writing/artwork! I am further hampered at my inability to read Spanish so can anyone provide any more information about this excellent adaptation?

Because I do not own these images, I am reproducing only two select pages from this tale. You can see the story in full by clicking over to the blog link later in this post.

I really love the artwork here and feel it captures the mood and horror of Hodgson’s story perfectly. Anyone know who the artist might be?

To read the rest of this great story, go to Jose Aviles’ blog at:

http://joseavilesblog.blogspot.com/2009/06/derelict-de-w-h-hodgson.html

His entry is dated 2009 so clearly the adaptation precedes it. I’m very curious to learn more about this and wonder if there might be more Hodgson comic stories out there waiting to be found?
