    Bats? The best that they could come up with to represent timeless cosmic horror is a lawn covered in jujubes and some Dark Shadows-grade BATS?

    Well, August Derleth doesn’t deserve MUCH better…

    The WTF why does he have a moth in jar kind of makes up for the cheesy bats.

    “The crawling chaos halted. For it could not bear the sight before it. Too late, it realized that this house belonged to… A PLUMBER!”

    If this doesn’t warrant a ‘Behind you’ I don’t know what does. He really hasn’t mastered this hide and seek thing, has he?

    A guy having a mental breakdown at the sight of an approaching tsunami, which will destroy his house.

    Right, that absolutely screams “H.P. Lovecraft” in my mind. Where have the mind-shattering cosmic horrors gone?
