Horror, Sanity Loss, and Priests!

So, over the past few years as I've become more and more acquainted with the world of table top roleplaying games, I've also become more and more intrigued by the horror world of H. P. Lovecraft and his mythos. The fact that someone created gods that cause terror and destroy everyone and everything in their paths and there's nothing we can do to stop or fight them is awesome (and understated at that)!! Oh, you might know another creation of his, especially if you like Bruce Campbell movies (or The Mummy - Book of the Dead): The Necronomicon.

I think that too often do we get overexcited with our own race thinking we are the end-all, be-all of everything. To face alien Elder Gods whose one purpose is to destroy/devour everything is humbling in a freaky and horrific manner. Yay, Lovecraft! Anyway, here are a couple of nicely done comic pages from the web comic, Lovecraft is missing. I love the priest and his acid! Oh, and yes, I do know that the text is unreadable...that's because you should go to the site and read for yourself! It's great artwork!
