In this Dark Tale, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming...

H. P. Lovecraft’s story of supernatural monsters deep in the Pacific, told in graphic novel format, will keep you on the edge of your seat. More than 100 pages of illustrated horror and adventure await! Henry Wilcox can’t ignore his dreams of an enormous green monster calling to him from an underwater alien city. He seeks the help of Professor Angell, who dies suddenly, leaving a box of research on the subject for his nephew, Francis. Francis seeks answers about his uncle’s death, and in the process uncovers evidence of a cult waiting for the Great Old Ones to return.

Dave Shephard moved down to the south coast of England to study illustration at Brighton College many years ago. A love of drawing and sea swimming made the town a natural fit. Since then, he’s worked in the wonderfully varied and ever-evolving world of illustration. He specializes in books for teens and younger readers, as well as graphic novels.
