PROFESSOR GARGOYLE: TALES FROM LOVECRAFT MIDDLE SCHOOL #1 is an action-packed, easy-to-read kick-off for a humorous horror series. Author Charles Gilman keeps a light touch on the spookier aspects of the story, and illustrator Eugene Smith delivers drawings that are funny, if sometimes a little frightening. The "new kid at school" set-up is a little cliched, but the author delivers some interesting wrinkles on old themes.
