Weird Tales Interview: Sean Patrick O’Reilly

Dec 10, 2020

Sean Patrick O’Reilly has been one of the most prolific animation producers in recent years. As the owner and operator of Arcana Studio, which is also Canada’s largest comic book company, he’s produced nine feature films – including the Howard Lovecraft trilogy (Howard Lovecraft and the Frozen Kingdom, Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom & Howard Lovecraft and the Kingdom of Madness). Recently he took a break from moviemaking to return to his comic book roots and created a Christmas tale with artist David Alvarez.

Randolph the Reindeer, available now, follows an ex-hotshot reindeer who must brave a deadly snowstorm to reach Santa’s workshop to replace a beloved family heirloom before a family’s Christmas is ruined forever.

I recently got to talk to Sean about the book as well as plans for other Lovecraftian stories.
