Boom! Studios is taking the ballerina cover from Fall of Cthulhu #9, and super-sizing it to poster form, so you can hang it on the wall of your dorm or office.
“In the world created by H.P. Lovecraft, there are things that happen on a huge scale, and events so insignificant they barely happen at all. Yet he managed to imbue every incident great or small with a creepy, disturbing strangeness,” said poster and FALL OF CTHULHU artist Patrick McEvoy.Â “This picture was a good chance for me to try to visually capture that mood.”
Only 1,000 copies are being made of this 24″ x 36″ poster, and it will sell for $14.99.

I don’t know how I ended up getting so far behind on this stuff – I think it was either the three day weekend, or the first week of being back in the classroom, but regardless, tonight on the Major Spoilers Podcast, we’ll be discussing Hellboy: Seed of Destruction during the show.
When strangeness threatens to engulf the world, a strange man will come to save it. Sent to investigate a mystery with supernatural overtones, Hellboy discovers the secrets of his own origins, and his link to the Nazi occultists who promised Hitler a final solution in the form of a demonic avatar.
I know many of you have read the first volume, so shout out your thoughts below and we may include them on the show.
A love story with monsters
In days of yore, people kept their windows and door locked at night for fear monsters would spirit their children away to make of them a mid-night snack. In the 1950s, monster flicks and horror movies gave teenagers a chance to neck in the car, while spooky spirits made mayhem on the screen. Today, the monster genre runs the gambit from graphic horror to zany comedy, but in all this time we havenâ€™t seen too many tales of monster romance. Or more specifically, a vampire and a werewolf trying to find a home for themselves among the very humans they would eventually devour.
