H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu…for beginning readers, hardback Cthulhu Mythos picture book, by R.J. Ivankovic
“After the death of his great-uncle, Francis Wayland Thurston delves into the late Profesor Angell’s effects…
I was sorting through
all his research one day,
when I found a monstrosity
made out of clay.
Spurred on by his curiosity, Francis learns of many terrible things. The artist who came to his uncle for help. A raid in the Louisiana swamps, led by Inspector Legrasse. The sailor Gustaf Johansen. And, perhaps most importantly, the horrible fate of the Emma.
The most merciful thing
in the world, I believe,
is humanity’s failure
to fully conceive
of the cosmical horrors
we’ve yet to reveal,
and which up until now
I have tried to conceal
This 102-page adaption of H.P. Lovecraft’s classic story was written and illustrated by R.J. Ivankovic.
