Do you like Lovecraft?
Would you like to see a Lovecraftian comic about Lovecraft being an action hero? Then look no further, be prepared to be mortified as it’s time for another Kickstarter Highlight.
What is it?
This is a new comic that is written by Craig Engler, which looks to give us a dirty, gritty story of the occult. Let’s not pretend, it wouldn’t have been a Lovecraftian story if the occult weren’t heavily involved! In this world, the author H.P Lovecraft never existed, however in his place there is a proper superhero, an alchemist by the name of Lovecraft.
As the best magician in the world, Lovecraft sort of sees himself as a guardian of humanity, even though he doesn’t much care for them. It’s just if they go down, he’ll go down with them, right? It’s survival at its finest for Lovecraft.
We’ve featured Lovecraft based comics on here in the past… This one marks another brilliant Lovecraftian title that needed to just be shown to the world.
How much do they need?
Originally they were asking for just $10,000. Which they got. Very quickly. They are already at the $20,000 mark and rising. In fact, as of the time of writing, Lovecraft has received a whopping $28,558! That’s pretty damn impressive for a comic, so well done to Craig Engler and his really brilliant comic.
They will be using the money to cover the printing costs of a comic of this scale (especially since this will be one really big comic), as well as actually probably in the long run helping them with their out-of-pocket costs. So the more they get, the higher quality the product they can produce really. They have to pay their artists fees in some way of course.
What are the rewards?
As per usual, a Kickstarter Highlight just wouldn’t be the same without a quick look at the lower-end tiers!
That’s the end of another Kickstarter Highlight, where this week we’ve looked over a comic that Lovecraft himself would be proud of. Seriously, if you’ve still not yet read any of Lovecrafts works, I must implore you to get off this website the rest of the night and go read some of his works!
Have you read a comic like this before? Do you know of any other fan-made Lovecraft works? As always, join in the discussion below and we’ll see you again next week for yet another awesome Kickstarter Highlight!
