The Burning of Innsmouth

Wondering why I haven't shown much personal work in the last year? Well, here's the answer:

Yup - that's right. I've been beavering away on a comic book. It's a thriller set in the aftermath of Lovecraft's classic tale The Shadow Over Innsmouth. It tells the story of how the ill-fated coastal town came to be destroyed by the American Government.

  1. Wow, this is incredible! The artwork coupled with the coloring is wonderful, capturing the dire mood present is most of Lovecraft's work!

  2. Ooh, that looks great! Reminds me a little of Mike Mignola's work on Hellboy with the stark shadows and that angular face. I followed the blog for the comic, definitely looking forward to getting to pick this up when it's complete.

    1. Yep, Mignola's definitely an influence. Some more subtle differences though, as this is more 3D and cinematic.

  3. Looks marvelous! Love the dreary palette which makes for a truly fitting, atmospheric piece worthy of Lovecraft's vision. Loving the echoes of the Mignola style too; very accessible! :3

  4. This is fun! Adding this to the pile of to-be-read 2000AD and other comics I can look forward to.

  5. Ohhh, this is looking REALLY promising! I was going to point out the Mignola vibe as well, but then WestRider - and basically everbody else - beat me to the punch. Anyway, very cool stuff! Heading over there right now! :)

    On a tangentially related note, are you familiar with Neil Gaiman's various Lovecraft pastiches? "Shoggoth's Old Peculiar" always cracks me up, and "A Study In Emerald" is just brilliant crossover-weirdness.

    1. Thanks Krauty. Glad you like the style. I think I've read some of Gaiman's Sherlock Holmes/Cthulhu cross overs but that was a while back.
