No. 120 – Cthulhu Howard

Bottom: Michael Komarck’s cover for The Art of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos by Jeremy McHugh (Fantasy Flight Games, 2006)

Cthulhu* Howard from prog 1975’s (2016) Survival Geeks story Geeks Fatales (progs 19731977) written by Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby and drawn by Neil Googe, colours by Gary Caldwell v H.P. Lovecraft’s (1890–1937) Cthulhu [not necessarily this particular image]

Lovecraft achieved relatively little success as a writer in his own lifetime, and it has only been posthumously that his work – particularly his “Cthulhu Mythos” stories – has gained literary recognition and garnered a large cult following that has resulted in numerous reprints of his short stories, and merchandise that includes Cthulhu stuffed toys. His work has been hugely influential in comics.

*Earns a place in HoH as it’s not actually Cthulhu him- or itself
