The Call of Cthulhu (for Beginning Readers)

Dr. Faustus at DeviantArt

When I saw this Artist Creates Horror Books for Children in Dr. Seuss Style over at The Escapist, I went back to his site and I nearly… Well let’s just say it made me happy to see he has continued his work.

Years ago I linked to his work on The Call of Cthulhu and went so far as to make a booklet pdf and print it out for myself. I liked it that much, to spend hours cutting and pasting in MS Publisher. It looked like shit in greyscale but I loved it anyway. So what brings me to post again?

I see that he is in process of having The Call of Cthulhu (for Beginning Readers) printed by none other than Chaosium. Click on the cover to go to his site on Deviant Art and see all of creations. You can go directly to his The Call of Cthulhu Gallery here, but I strongly recommend you look at everything he has created. It just boggles my mind.

The Call of Cthulhu by way of Dr. Seuss

I cannot wait for a print version of these pages. Click on the picture above to go to the gallery hosted on DeviantArt. If you’re not scared. 😉

There are actually two versions in his gallery. The first version looked complete and someone had posted a link to a pdf in the comments section. The revised set does not look complete but once it is, I look forward to a pdf.

EDIT: 13. February 2012: It looks as though The Call of Cthulhu is completed.

Rocky Horror Picture Show in Richmond, VA

Seriously, my wife and I love this movie and are dying to go see it live. If you live in the Richmond, Virginia area and like wacked-out campy fun, click on the picture to see when the next live showing of the movie will take place at the Bowtie Cinema on the Boulevard.

Over the past three months or so, they have had midnight showings every other week on Friday and Saturday. With other movies like The Wizard of Oz (for Christmas), Dr. Strangelove (for Thanksgiving), and A Clockwork Orange (good anytime) during the off weeks.

This month they are also showing The Breakfast Club, a favorite of my wife’s and in my opinion the best John Hughes film of the bunch.

P.S. I have yet to see St. Elmo’s Fire which I hear is a good film in its own right; many of the same actors appear. Opinions?
