Pet peeve: When people include Cthulhu in the list of creatures Aquaman can control. Dagon? Hydra? Maybe. Cthulhu? No. Cthulhu isn’t a sea creature. Cthulhu doesn’t live in the ocean. He’s trapped down there! That’s the whole point! R’lyeh has sunken beneath the sea and Cthulhu sleeps there until the stars are right and the city comes back up. He doesn’t live in the ocean! If I trap someone in a box and then throw the box into the ocean, the person in there doesn’t suddenly become a sea creature!
Man, the art in European Call of Cthulhu is staggeringly good. Moon-Beast pictured above.
That is a brilliantly alien and intelligent Servitor of the Outer Gods.
Ah, the Elder Things. Considering my book has a shoggoth cop in it, I’m definitely bringing them up in a sequel.
You know, a lot of books use the Yithians as the closest thing to good guys in the Mythos. These dudes uproot entire races and throw them into the meat-grinder on distant planets to ensure their own survival. They’re monsters, but just ones you can hold a conversation with.
