Lovely Lovecraft

by Malakia
LOVELY LOVECRAFT is a webcomic based on life and tales of U.S author Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
Is intended to fans and to uninitiated as well and it reimagines the world-famous Cthulhu Mythos mixing cartoonish character design with dark thematics.

PLOT:
Howard is a 12 year old boy who has just moved to the ancient town of Arkham. His normal yet solitary life is turned upside down when, snooping in the attic of the old house once owned by a mysterious antiquarian named Randolph Carter, he finds a damaged copy of the notorious Necronomicon.
After reading aloud some of the formulas, Howard's mind opens on a new comprehension of reality and gains a dark knowledge sufficient to drive anyone mad ... except him.
Helped by a mistakenly summoned Night Gaunt, Howard begins his journey through the mysteries of Arkham where the terrible Outer Gods have been trapped and forced to live an human-like existence.
Used to wait for aeons in the darkest regions of space, most of them take lightly their new condition, except for the eager and hyperactive Nyarlathotep who desperately wants to break free of the curse.

At first glance I didn't like this concept at all. I questioned not the beauty of the art work, but its ability to capture the essence of Lovecraft. I couldn't have been more wrong. Once I began to read it I immediately realized how perfectly the the lore had been stitched together to please or at least supplicate even the most discerning Lovecraft scholar.

I love this comic! It's awesome and you are awesome! I really hope there'll be more pages soon!

(But I think Ilek-Vad and Carter's Sunset City aren't the same thing '3' )
Snazzy!

Since it took somebody a lifetime to build, no wonder it took 4 days to draw. It's amazing, thank you so much for all your time & effort! :) :) :)

It even looks the way I'd imagined when reading the original story - poster material, easily. With a triple A for talent, time, and tedium.
This probably isn't relevant to your comic--which I'm really enjoying so far!--but from personal experience, having one's soul torn into a large number of pieces is one of those things that hurts in the moment it happens but then becomes simply how you are. Living as a tiny piece of soul confetti is only as bad as your relationships with the other pieces. They can ignore or backstab each other, creating their own misery, but they can also work together for their common good.
Mr. Carter sounds like a reasonably competent sort of person. If he were to organize himselves into an army, tearing apart his soul could prove to be a serious mistake...assuming it isn't a lie after all.

Woo!
It's working again! Woo!
Outstanding, artwork & plot both. I recognized a lot of names - Mason, Orne, Rice, poor Wilmarth, etc. Love how the humorous notes are tucked in there; very nicely balanced!
Wonderful!
This comic is an absolute delight to read. I love all of the original characters, and your interpretations of Lovecraft's characters are fantastic. Especially love your take on Randolph Carter! Keep up the excellent work, this is AWESOME.
My favourite line from Lovecraft...
:D glad to see you are still updating here!
Cool to see you here too, your work keeps on being terrific!

Take care ;)
Typo
Should be "wealthy" not "whealty", I'm guessing?
@Adam: Thank you so muuuuch! :D
