Tom Sutton's Lovecraftia



More H.P. Lovecraft now, with a stunning Tom Sutton piece, one of the few artists convincingly able to channel Lovecraft into the comic form. Not that this is an actual adaptation, more of a homage.
Tom insisted that this piece be printed in black & white, presumably because it would've been too much for the human mind to endure in colour, and Charlton went for it because, y'know, it's Tom Sutton. He's from the same dimension as Alex Nino.

  1. Magnificent. Do you recall the book-length Sutton story about Dr. Graves facing Satan himself?

    Another artist that seemed to have a feel for HPL was Spain Rodriguez, who did a pulpy original story for one of the special Lovecraft issues of Skull Comix.
