Cthulhu No More!




Cover art for Cthulhu Tales#10, and my last for the title since it's getting cancelled/'going on hiatus' - maybe you should've bought a copy?

Thanks very much for commenting on my blog, Shane! I hope you come back from time to time.

I'm sorry that I haven't been 'in the know' with comics... and that's my excuse for not buying a copy of Cthulhu Tales.

Lame, I know.

I always found it tricky to make monster's feel creepy and ghoulish. You nailed it! great composition and fluid line work. Ill be checking from time to time. Great work.

brian - yeah, i'll be popping over agen.
and no, that's not lame. a lot of folk don't follow monthly comics, my comment was more aimed at the people who DO, and who follow this blog, and worse, profess to have a strong bias towards the horror genre(yes - YOU!).
as far as i know,no acquaintances or friends of mine buy CTHULHU TALES or ZOMBIE TALES. that's ethier cus; 1. they think they are crap(though they'd have to buy one to find out!). 2. they don't wanna spend the money. 3.they really don't give a shit.
i suspect it's a mix of 2 and 3.

roland - thankyou.

eddie - i find it tricky to make things NOT look creepy and ghoulish! thanx for the kind words.

jorge - please do keep coming back, cheers!

eric - thanks, mate. it came out better than i expected, and woz a buzz to draw.

Bugger, sorry to hear that. I pick up the odd issue (suppose I fall into the 2. camp), so I guess I didn't help.
