Kickstarter Spotlight: Dagon

Okay folks, I’ve got two names for you: Lovecraft and Templesmith. ‘Nuff said, right? I’m all about H.P. Lovecraft‘s works; as a matter of fact, I’m wearing a Cthulhu/Peanuts mashup shirt right now! So seeing a Kickstarter for DAGON by H.P. Lovecraft & Ben Templesmith was a must for me to support and share with you fine folks!

This year marks the 125th anniversary of H.P. Lovecraft’s birth and Ben Templesmith is celebrating the occasion by adapting Dagon into comic book form. Since this Lovecraft story was the first one that Templesmith read, it holds a very special place in his heart. And knowing how Templesmith does a great job at literally everything I’ve ever seen him work on, this is going to be awesome! Based on a short story revolving around a shipwrecked mariner, this horror tale is one of the first stories Lovecraft published (in this case it was 1919). I won’t go into too much regarding the story, but suffice to say that as with most things Lovecraftian, it’s not likely to end well. Dark and deadly, his tales rely heavily on the reader’s imagination to fill in the more macabre sections.

Art by Renzo Podesta and Thomas Boatwright
Letters by E.T. Dollman
Cover by Rob Corless
Arcana Studios
Release Date: October 21, 2014

How often do you see an H.P. Lovecraft or Cthulhu comic that’s made for all ages? Not too often, that’s for sure! But that’s exactly what Howard Lovecraft and the Three Kingdoms delivers to the reader. It’s a trio of tales that brings the darkness to children and adults alike! Do I have your attention now? Read on to find out more!

As I said above, there are three different stories within this graphic novel, all humorous and highly entertaining. The primary character is a young Howard Lovecraft (you probably deduced that from the title) and, as many are, he is a curious, adventurous boy. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have the most stable home life since his father was sent to an asylum. But it is because of that fact that he is exposed to the dark forces that permeate these tales.

Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘At The Mountains Of Madness’ Adaptation May Live Again As A PG-13 Feature

Guillermo Del Toro Pacific Rim

The century-plus history of the cinema has seen more than its fair share of grand projects nurtured by filmmakers for years before being abandoned under any number of conditions. In modern times there have been few directors as determined to make a dream project into a reality as Guillermo Del Toro and his long-gestating adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft‘s 1936 novella At the Mountains of Madness.

After keeping it on the back-burner for several years, the man who brought the world the Hellboy movies, Pan’s Labyrinth, and last year’s international blockbuster Pacific Rim announced his intentions to bring Lovecraft’s vision of bone-chilling horror to the big screen in 2010. The project found a home at Universal Pictures with none other than James Cameron serving as a producer and Tom Cruise circling the lead role. Del Toro intended to shoot Mountains of Madness in 3D on a budget of around $120 million. Giving this film the coveted green light seemed practically a certainty, but unfortunately the studio pulled the plug early the following year over concerns if the film would reach a wide enough audience to justify the sizable expenses that would be required to suitably adapt it for the screen, especially since Del Toro was aiming for an R rating with the final product.
