    aaarrh! i want more…
    so frustrating!
    this ‘comic’ has not left my browser since i found it.
    to enthrall a Lovecraft enthusiast and a comicbook geek so is quite some task, but you’ve managed it.
    very good job, very good indeed.

    Sweet googly moogly! That 2nd to last panel is gruesome! :D

  5. Al Bruno III

    As always sir you do truly awesome work…

  6. Kestrel

    Heavens! Excellent storytelling – that 2nd to last panel managed to startle me. Awesome!

  7. Ankhmahor

    Yep, what they said – amazing work. That’s what anything Lovecraftian should look like – giving you the creeps, the heebie jeebies, and whatever else doesn’t come to mind. :D

    Bah, humbug!

    I’ve just discovered this and read it all the way through to the latest episode only to realise I’ve now got to wait for the rest of the story to be told.

    It’s very, very good. Definitely in the mould of Lovecraft but also having quite its own style and charm.

    Where it differs from Lovecraft is it seems to have an underlying optimism, whereas a happy ending, for Lovecraft, was if the hero only had to hear his children being eaten alive, rather than be forced to watch, followed by a five trillion year sojourn in Hell as opposed to five trillion eternities.

    Keep up the good work.

    Oh man, you keep outdoing yourself, week after week. That penultimate panel left me suspendeded between the gross-out and utter fascination with the details while the worm in the back of my brain is itching to find out what they were forced to see before they died with their eyes sewed open….

    Yes, in my scraping around for items of Lovecraft, I bumped into this site. It was so delicious devouring page after page that was really worthy of being called a “Lovecraft tale”. Quite fun to see the man himself as a character in this story and perhaps that his stories were real and he is merely translating them into weird tails.

    And now, like the rest of you…. I’m stuck waiting and waiting for the next page. I do love the artwork and I would LIKE to buy this as a real comic one day. I was at Dragon Con in Atlanta and was stunned to discover a MASS of Lovecraft comics. I couldn’t stop long enough to drink them in, so I had to settle for a resin cast “bag of Cthulhu” and leave before I could read many of them.

    I heard there was a guy on the web that hand makes Lovecraft books (hand printed and bound etc.). Anyone know of this guy? I thought I was the first one to come up with the idea, but the guy at the booth told me otherwise. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to write my own stories and bind them. Hate to tread on someone else’s hard efforts.

    Absolutely brilliant story telling and quite impressive art work. Have you made professional comics before?
