A collaborative full color illustrated children's book style adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu.

We are writing and illustrating a full color, illustrated children’s book of The Call of Cthulhu as part of a series of Littlest Lovecraft books.  Our book will have front to back full color illustrations and is approximately 57 pages long!

Here are just a couple of the beautiful interior illustrations!

Because it’s awesome!  Also, we want to share Lovecraft’s works with a broader, younger audience that may have a hard time getting into the original text.  It is our hope that our generation of Lovecraft enthusiasts will find our books useful in sharing their love with young Lovecraftians in the making!

Here's a brief list of what we've completed so far and what we are currently working on!

  • Draft of the full manuscript completed
  • First draft storyboards for all three sections completed
  • Second draft storyboards for The Horror in Clay and the Tale of Inspector Legrasse completed
  • Proof dummy for The Horror in Clay and the Tale of Inspector Legrasse completed
  • Illustrations for The Horror in Clay started

Here's what we've got coming up next!

  • Second draft storyboards for the Madness from the Sea
  • Cover illustrations
  • Remaining interior illustrations
  • Book layout
  • Reward designs

We expect to be finished with these upcoming tasks by late August.  From there our book will most likely be completed and ready for distribution by October/November of this year.  We've set the delivery date a little bit later just in case!

We'll post more updates in the updates section as we progress!

    Along with copies of the books, we’re also offering a variety of awesome postcards, prints, t-shirts, and a custom drawn illustration of you and Great Cthulhu!  See below for a breakdown of our Tiers and Add Ons -  all of these include shipping in the US - International shipping for each level is noted in the Rewards column on the right!

    Just add the total for all of your Add Ons to your pledge and either send us a private message with what you're adding on or remember it and note it in the survey at the end. Easy as that!

    While we have set the publication goal reasonably far ahead, there is always the risk that we will be delayed in the final product.  In this event we will obviously keep everyone well informed of our delays.  There is also the possibility that we will be picked up by a publisher and the publication date itself could be somewhat out of our hands.  Should that happen, we will keep everyone posted AND make up for it with additional awesome swag!
