Oooo pretty colors.
Wow. That is just awesome. You never fail to amaze, Larry. Thanks!
Woot, take that Tom!
Once again, lovely art work, amazing kaleidoscopic muliticoloured explosion.
Does anyone else see the outline of a head in the top left corner of the last panel?
(…Looks painful, though. o_x)
(…And I suppose the thing to do now is hope the asplodey worked as intended…)
Tom go boom
Am I the only one who waits anxiously for the next page? I need to know what happens next!
Bye young tom, we never knew ye!
Everyone waits the next page anxiously, WMDKitty.
I’ve known of this comic for a year or so but I haven’t read it until now, dear lord, it’s addictive!! I’ve read the whole thing in less than 2 hours!! (Excuse me if I make any spelling mistakes, I’m from Spain)
One thing I really like about the comic is (aside it’s about HPL and his works, of course) your drawing style, Larry; it’s clean and simple and the colouring as well; and still it serves its purpose perfectly. I’m saying this because I’m a great fan of realistic drawings but it’s not the first time I’ve seen the greatness of styles that don’t usually fit my standards. I bow to you, sir!
Also, on a side note, a question I didn’t ask in the appropriate page because no one would have answered. In one of the flashback pages titled ‘The music of Erich Zann’, they mentioned the name ‘Melmoth’. Melmoth as in Charles Robert Maturin’s “Melmoth, the wanderer”??!! That’s one of my favourite books!! ♥_♥ If that’s so… I bow again!
Elmatpe, thanks for all the kind words. And not that I am seeking bows, but yes, that mention of Melmoth is a reference to Maturin’s work. If you’ll read closely, you’ll see that different people refer to the bad guy with different names –Kartophilus, St. Germain, Melmoth– but all are names of reputed immortals.
You are welcome, Larry. I don’t usually come across many people who know about Maturin’s work (in real life, that is – not even those who claim they love horror and gothic horror, hell! most of those don’t even know who HPL is!!) and I am always thrilled to see any references to one of my favorite novels. Heh! It’s like Melmoth said in the book: he’s neither physically nor mentally appealing.
I was expecting Joseph Curwen or Simon Orne to be in the ceremony, though.
Just for the folks out there who haven’t read ( or perhaps haven’t even heard of ) Melmoth the Wanderer, it’s available for free at Project Gutenberg. Well-worth the read.
@Maphysto yeah, kinda looks like Arthur Jermyn
Very nice page!
GAHH! This comic = rad.
Right up my ally it is.
@Maphysto it’s a face, for sure… might be the previous dweller of that bottle, right?
Just read this at a sitting, referred from superdickery… awesome work, and I say that as a PhD level fan of Lovecraft. Awesome stuff.
If you are flirting with the idea of print publishing, you will have many guaranteed sales I would say. This is a wonderful comic.
I wrote my thesis on the social anxieties expressed in Lovecraft’s stories. So of course I’m pretty excited about someone making a comic out of his huge universe. I really like that you incorporated some of his lesser known stories like Cool Air and Red Hook. Any chance we’ll see Herbert West soon? I know, canonically he died in 1917, but you’re taking liberties in that respect anyway, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
You just never know….
I just finished reading the whole comic, and while I’m not aquainted with Lovecraftian lore other than the impression of evil, horror, and the awesomeness of Cthulu, I love this. Dark and gross, but wonderfully narrated, drawn, and there are just times where I die laughing….”Shoot the nekkid people first…”….XD
My predictions say that some how we’ll wind up meeting the Biggest of the Baddest and the Raddest…and the only guy most people have a reference to: Cthulu.
Anyway, well colored, good emotiong and story flow, and I can’t wait to see more! Keep up the good work!
WOW. What is there to say…
Great comic, I can enjoy it even without being a die-hard Lovecraft, or horror fiction fan.
Great job with the story telling and pacing…keep it up!
BOOM goes the dynamite!
And now I’m caught up. Terrific comic! You’ve got a good handle on the art of comickin’
