Lovecraftian Dropdowns?

Lovecraftian Dropdowns?

Postby Harmony0stars on Sun May 26, 2002 7:07 am

Hey, don't know if there's one out there, but there should be, don't you think?

My comic's vaguely Lovecraftian (got shuggoths for now), and there's yours, and a few others have had Lovecraftian elements. A dropdown or webring of some kind might be in order. It would make us all easier to find anyway. 8)

I suppose eventually we could even organize a cross over event if others were willing to make some dimensional jaunts. :P My comic takes place on an alternate earth. It's not funny like yours. :cry: I can only make with the funny in person. lol

So what do you think?

Sounds like a good idea to me.

No Lovecraft Dropdown

Aw well, looks like you and I are the only ones who thought it was a good idea. Or maybe there just aren't that many Lovecraftian comics out there. :cry:

Since it would be silly for a dropdown to only have two people on it, I did some digging around and found a couple web rings (that I can't figure out how to join) and an interesting CoC site. http://home.istar.ca/~eggvegg/C_D/page1.html

Basically you can decide to be "Mythos Compliant" or "Mythos Defiant" for the big crunch when the Old Ones finally break free and run rough-shod over the Earth. Well, I imagine you'd be Mythos Compliant. lol I am Defiant. Have to be my own demon, don't I? Heh :evil:

Anyway, thought I'd share.

Lessee... what Lovecraftian comics are there?
There's ours (obviously), as well as yours. Kevin Wolf does <a href="http://www.mythocorp.com/">Mythocorp</a> which incorperates (or incorperated) some of the cosmic horror aspect into his comic. There's also <a href="http://ghastly.keenspace.com">Ghastly</a>, although he's more hentai than Lovecraft. I know that Mike Rosen-Molina's <a href="http://fantasticalbestiary.keenspace.com/">Fantastical Bestiary</a> has featured Cthulhu once or twice as well.

Quite frankly, one of the reasons that I chose to do a Lovecraftian comic was that there <i>weren't</i> very many out there.

Really? I imagined you did a Lovecraftian comic cause you were a Lovecraft fan. heh :wink:

Moi, j'adore Lovecraft. :P (1 year of French and this is all I remember! heh)

Ah well, hope you found the link I posted useful anyway. Anything to get the hits, yes?

I still think you and I are the only true Lovecraftian comics. I'd say Mythocorps is borderline, though like ours, it does seem to be based in a Lovecraftian World at any rate. I don't think a comic can be called Lovecraftian just cause it features Cthulu, so Fantastic Bestiary would be out. Hell's Sweet Hell featured Cthulu too, but I wouldn't call it Lovecraftian. And Ghastly's comic is just....messed up. Sometimes it's funny, but often I just think...oooooooookaaaaaaaaaay? But interestingly enough, I read all of them. I wonder what other comics we have in common. lol

TCoW was originally based on a short story I'd written the year before. At the time I'd written it, I'd read a little Lovecraft (The Call of Cthulhu, naturally, as well as Haunter in the Darkness), a bit of Derleth, and some Lumley that I'd borrowed from somebody else (the Titus Crow books). I had some knowledge of the mythos, but not much.

The story itself was inspired by reading the (un)Official Lovecraft FAQ, more specifically, the advice on writing Lovecraftian fiction. I decided to write a story that broke as many of the guidelines as possible and ended up just getting carried away. TCoW was born (actually, CotW was, since I thought the stories name was 'Call of the Cthulhu').

Last summer I wanted to start a webcomic but had no idea what I wanted to do it on. I didn't want it to be something clich
