  • Genre: Horror


H.P. Lovecraft’s ground-breaking horror story presented with 11 original full-color illustrations.

Francis Thurston inherits a mysterious locked box from his great-uncle, a renown Semitic language professor who died under suspicious circumstances. Inside the box, Francis discovers a journal, a strange collection of newspaper clippings…and a clay bas-relief depicting a monstrous creature standing over a dead city. 

His great-uncle was investigating a terrifying mystery involving secret cults and forbidden rituals before his untimely death, and Francis endeavors to bring his great-uncle’s research to its dreadful conclusion.

‘The Call of Cthulhu' features all the signature elements of Lovecraft’s eerie brand of cosmic horror: 

A detached, isolated scholar struggling to cope with the horrors he uncovers. The insignificant role of the human race. The sanity-breaking unveiling of an ancient, alien god. 

There are no easy resolutions, no victory over evil, no hope for mankind. Only a glimpse behind the curtain of ‘the real world’, a brief moment of understanding, and the inevitable madness that follows.
