What Happens In Innsmouth Stays In Innsmouth.  So Innsmouth is kinda like Vegas only there’s no gambling, brothels, and everything smells like fish.

I realize that today’s comic is going to be a little hard to get unless your a H.P. Lovecraft fan like I am.  However I’m also willing to bet that a higher than average percentage of my readership not only know about lovecraft, but probably also have read the story “A Shadow Over Innsmouth.”  If you haven’t read it then you really should.  It’s a quick read and a good introduction to early American horror writing.

While you’re at it check out some of his other stories worth reading:

  • At The Mountains of Madness
  • Herbert West: Reanimator (One of the earliest zombie stories and pretty influential on me)
  • The Call of Cthulhu
  • The Colour Out of Space
  • The Rats in the Walls

Those are just some of my favorite stories, for a complete list that you can read of H.P. Lovecraft’s works go here.

You may notice lately that I am on a bit of a Lovecraft kick right now.  Don’t worry we’ll be getting back to a more zombiecentric comic soon.  I’m just expanding the tiny world that my webcomic inhabits a bit.  The zombie road trip will roll on soon enough.

For now enjoy your stay in Innsmouth.
