    I think The Miskatonic University Sorority Shower Fear would sell more copies.

    He seems dubious about the “other stories”. One can only imagine the horror of the filler they put in there.

    @Mr Wizard

    If your are going to do shots with an entity likely to drive you mad, might as well double down and make it absinthe.

    That Garfield the Cat — he so hates Mondays! Let’s see what laughs he has for us today.

    I’m not sure what “Lurkinq” is. I never associated Lovecraft with kinqiness.

    Those figures in the upper right corner resemble the Ghostly Trio, which means he’s Casper, and this is how he turns out after embracing a life of absinthe, unnameable horror, and general Cthulhu badassness. Not so cute and cuddly anymore, eh Casper?

    @Tor: HPL wasn’t even into reqular sexinq, I hear.

    @Hammy: I <3 BCN. Always hard-hitting about the news that matters.

    I think the creature on this cover could easily be taken out by three indoor-only domestic cats.

    20 years ago, I think this guy was on the "Wazzzzuuuuppp" commercials.

    He's not very eldritch, squamous, or scary with his lurkinq; certainly no Bokrug.

    The artist actually went to the trouble to get the mismatched eye colors correct.
