Happy Holidays from C is for Cthulhu!
It's the C is for Cthulhu Team here wishing you a very happy holidays!
It's been a busy, busy, busy couple of months for us here (as I'm sure it's been for you) spent mostly figuring out the logistics of how to deliver life-size C is for Cthulhu Plush toys to 50 fans around the world.
It's freaking ridiculous how big this thing is... as C is for Cthulhu writer Jason Ciaramella finally found out himself.
And after being completely sold out of regular sized C is for Cthulhu plush toys for several months, and battling multiple shipping delays, we're thrilled to finally be back in stock and fully operational!
(Those limited edition Black dolls are even cooler than we expected!)
We're hard workers over here, and that doesn't often leave too much time for reflection...
But when you're cruising down the highway getting honks from other cars on the road because you've got a life-size Cthulhu riding shotgun, well, it's hard not to be incredibly grateful for the support of a an incredible fanbase who made it all happen.
The board book, coloring book, plush toys... and everything else... it would not exist without your support and enthusiasm.
We just topped the 20,000 fans mark over on our Facebook page, which means we'll be able to do even more incredibly amazing stuff in 2017.
So, What's Coming Next Year?
As you know, we'll be releasing the next book in the C is for Cthulhu line of board books. Sweet Dreams Cthulhu: A Lovecraft Bedtime Story reunites writer Jason Ciaramella with artist Greg Murphy... and it looks AMAZING!
The book features many of the characters you'll recognize from the ABC board book, wrapped in a narrative about how to face your fears when you have trouble sleeping.
Another project we're SUPER EXCITED about for 2017 is producing a line of C is for Cthulhu Vinyl Figurines with our partners on the plush, Skelton Crew.
Israel Skelton (the guy with the impressive beard) was so amazing to work with on the plush toys, and has been doing great things with figures for other top properties (such as Image Comic's CHEW), that we've decided to work with him on creating a custom C is for Cthulhu figure.
We'll be seeking your input on design for the figures in the new year.
In addition to that, we're also going to be opening up a C is for Cthulhu Labs group composed of some of our biggest fans and advocates. The goal of the Labs group is to have a small group of fan/advisors/advocates who can get an early look at new stuff we're creating to provide feedback on it, and to also help spread the word about new projects once they launch, in exchange for discounts and other incentives.
We'll be opening up applications for being a part of that advisory group in the new year as well.
Again, it's been an amazing 2016 for the C is for Cthulhu family...
But now that it's almost in the rearview mirror, we're even more fired up about 2017!
Happy holidays from your pals at C is for Cthulhu!
