elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

H.P. Lovecraft Comic Books & Graphic Novels

Continuing with my H.P. Lovecraft finale for Halloween Countd0wn 2008, I present a great collection of comic books and graphic novels inspired or based upon the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. For my next post I will be sharing a large collection of 160 H.P. Lovecraft e-books. You will need to download the program CDisplay Comic Book Reader to view the files in .cbr format, which can be found here. For the .pdf files you will need a pdf viewer. If you need a free pdf viewer, I would recommend Foxit PDF Viewer. Get it here. There are a total of 20 Lovecraft comics, which I have split up into two different rar archives. Here is a list of all the files included:

Alan Moore's The Courtyard (Publisher: Avatar)
H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulu - The Festival (Publisher: Borderland)

Thanks for so many good comics, drawn in the immemorial Lovecraft way! I wrote an essay, years ago, about Lovecraft in comics (in spanish). My regards, and don't forget Alberto Breccia's works!
Thanks again!

Hi there, I just wanted whoever posted all of the Lovecraft stories to know how much they're appreciated.

I've been greedily downloading them this afternoon when I used the old cliche and said to myself "It's Xmas for Lovecraft fans!"

The irony is that today really is Xmas. I'm often amused by the little things in life and shiny objects, too.

I also wanted to let somebody know that some links aren't working. I didn't write them all down, but the most recent link is dis one:

Download: David McCallum Reads "The Rats In The Walls" (38MB)

The good news is that the story is repeated elsewhere on the same page by another reader. Since I've never heard these readers, I'm trying to get all of them, keeping the best and chucking the rest...

Thanks for all you do for your blog fans!

Just wanted to add to your list of Lovecraft comics my own book Howard Lovecraft & The Frozen Kingdom. I would like to know if you would consider a review of it and it's next installment. The first book was featured in the Chicago Tribune and Rue Morgue magazine. If you are interested, please let me know.
