The tentacled one meets dr seuss

Earlier this week, I was amused to find that H. P. Lovecraft’s horror short story “The Call of Cthulhu” had been rendered in cartoon form, copying the style of Dr. Seuss, by an enterprising artist.  An article at Gizmodo discussed the project.  Here are a couple of sample pages.






The book is also available on  It’s a fun read, and (dare I say it?) an antidote to much of the schlock inflicted on us during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

    1. Carol of the Old Ones, Christmas at Ground Zero, and Wizards in Winter are holiday songs I am fond of.

  1. I got a few thumbs up at Day Job when, after being asked who I planned to vote for, I said I was getting a “Cthulu for President” bumper sticker. To go with my “Yellowstone Volcano/ SMOD 2020” sticker.

    1. Yes, he is serious . . . and blind to historical reality. There are too many like that these days. *Sigh*

    2. I’ve heard that one too. It’s especially ironic because before and during WW2, Theodore Geisel aka Dr. Seuss was the editorial cartoonist for Punch magazine — an explicitly left-wing, pro-Soviet publication. I have a book that’s a collection of his wartime cartoons. There isn’t anything especially “racist” about them. Yeah, he was incredibly nasty to the Japanese, but he was just as nasty to the (white) Nazis.

    3. Most of the Woke have never heard of Seuss’s “Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose.” Let’s keep it that way.

  2. IIRC, there are a few of these books. My Friendly Local Game Store has had them in the past. My vague recollection is that there’s one for Innsmouth, and possibly one or two more that I’ve seen.
