Lovecraftian Horror meets the zombie apocalypse in today’s comic. Our zombies invade Innsmouth for some cross genre horror.
For those of you not familiar with Innsmouth, it comes from a story “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” The Novella was written in 1931 by the great and powerful H.P. Lovecraft. It’s always been one of my favorite stories.
Lovecraftian horror holds a special place in my cold dead black heart. It’s not that it’s particularly scary. It’s just that it has these themes and moods to it that really appeal to me when I look for good horror.
I love the ideas about lost crumbling civilizations and unimaginable horrors trying to get back into our world. It has an overpowering theme that mankind is accidental and inconsequential in an vast unfeeling and uncaring universe.
It’s the same feeling I get when I visit my in-laws for the holidays, but with fewer tentacles.
