#CthulhuThursday is Alternative Visions of Cthulhu and of Christmas

October 19, 2017

I must start with news of our twisted campaign to create these blasphemous Christmas cards! We’re about 75% funded so do join us!

Next is this great image of Cthulhu. Now we’re used to seeing images based on Lovecraft’s original sketch of Cthulhu, so it’s always cool when someone re-interprets the look of such an iconic monster…

A very unique Cthulhu design by Christopher Onciu

Also this is a halloween book you NEED in your life!

Finally I enjoyed this article on why Ghostbusters as an antidote to the horror of Lovecraft’s vision…

This, then, is the world-view Ghostbusters offers in place of the Cthonic duality. As in Lovecraft we have a surface world of institutions, with a horror zone beneath—which, if you read human history, is not far from the truth. Many bodies lie buried beneath our marble facades. But if you press through the marble and the rot—which takes work, humility, courage, and a sense of humor—you’ll be able to connect with living breathing human beings.

See you next week!

(Cthulhu Thursday is a dose of Mythos to brighten darken your week. More on the idea can be found here and a list of posts thus far, here. Also some upcoming Cthulhu news, sign up to the Auroch Digital’s newsletter. Enjoy!)
