A tentacular retelling of Lovecraft's defining story of cosmic horror in the style of Dr. Seuss. Brilliant fun!

Description


The most merciful thing
in the world, I believe
is humanity's failure
to fully conceive
the cosmical horrors
we've yet to reveal,
and which up until now
I have tried to conceal.

The iconic H.P. Lovecraft 1928 story, The Call of Cthulhu, is now a children's book. Seamlessly and gracefully told in anapestic tetrameter by "genius poet-artist" RJ Ivankovic.

The late Professor Angell's research has been discovered by his grand-nephew, Francis Wayland Thurston. Francis delves into the papers and discovers a bas-relief depicting an odd creature with an octopoid head, spurring him to read on. He learns of the raid led by Inspector Legrasse and the voyage of the Vigilant, captained by Gustaf Johansen.

This glorious full color 102-page adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft story was written and illustrated by R.J. Ivankovic.
