Matt Nelson's Catbeard Book V: Poopdeck & Pawprints

Catbeard Book Five is Here!

The latest in Matt Nelson’s hilarious piratey comic series has arrived with Catbeard Book Five: Poopdecks & Pawprints! Once again we can all set sail with Catbeard and the crew of the Fearsome Roar, and I couldn’t be more excited. If you haven’t read Catbeard, you should rectify that immediately. (New storyline begins November 17th.) It’s hilarious, and these days it’s a nice respite from the absurd chaos reality throws at us.

I’m also in this book! I was honored to be asked to write the forward for this one and I jumped at the chance. Plus it meant Matt would do an illustration of me! He gave me the option to have a standard portrait, or he offered to draw me as a gibbering Lovecraftian monstrosity. Clearly, I made the correct choice.

It's me as an elder...uh, thing. Credit to Matt Nelson.

Jason Thompson’s “Lovecraft’s Dream Quest”

Lovecraft Sketch: Innsmouth Folk

I saw this illustrated webcomic of H.P. Lovecraft’s Dream Cycle  featured over on i09 and I wanted to immediately post about it. However, I decided to take my time reading through the comics first. Man was it fun. Jason Thompson’s (@mockmanLovecraft’s Dream Quest is fantastic. The art great and Thompson does an excellent job retelling the Dream Cycle stories with a style all of his own and a level of detail rarely seen in the webcomic space. I really enjoyed it and suggest you give them a look as well. Start the adventure here. Have fun!

(The sketch is Thompson’s “Lovecraft Sketch: Innsmouth Folk” – while technically not apart of the Dream Cycle, “The Shadow’s Over Innsmouth” is one of my favorte Lovecraft stories so obviously I had to include it.)
