I think the whole thing is brilliant! I must say that although the writing is improved in the up-dated versions, for the most part, I enjoyed the first version pictures more. Either way, well done! It's great!

(I posted this on the other version of this page, as well, modified to match the version I referenced each time - wasn't sure which you would see).

I've just read through the whole piece, and looked at the art of both versions. Smashing job, sir, all around. Please, please, do a Kickstarter for this and your other works, so that we may repay you for your wonderous works, and share them with the next generation and others.

I have a few minor artistic quibbles between which version looks better, though, and I have to say, IMO, this page looks better in this version than in the new one. The vague tendril-like shadows under and beneath the chair, and the blue circle of the floor which defined the space (suggesting a room, and perhaps a pool of light - or shadows), both lent a sinister air. The best part of the previous iteration was the deranged sailor though. I feel the new one lacks detail, in expression and clothing (and hook), and looks like it could just be a crabby child playing dress-up. Still wonderfully rendered, just almost a bit ... bland (not a term I would normally ascribe to your work). Just something to consider when you publish (please, in any format).

I'm overwhelmed...the brilliance of this is simply astounding. But not only the adaptation or the prose, I enjoy noting all the *tiny* details in the artwork that you included that really capture Seuss' style. For example, look at Cthulhu's hands on the front cover...the raised pinkies on the kidnappers...the closed eyes as the characters interact....all utterly indicative of Seuss. Amazing.

I'm enraptured and depressed in synchronicity. Enraptured for obvious reasons...and depressed that it's over! (and also for the reason that, no matter how hard I try, I can most likely never hope to create a project that is anywhere near as good as this)

Wow! Thanks for taking the time to notice the details! I don't want you to feel depressed, so make sure you check out the revised pages if you haven't already done so - this whole thing has been done over twice, and hopefully you'll find the revisions just as satisfying.

Brilliant last panel. Absolutely beautiful. "...and the cult still lives." I'm reading this nursery crime with the soundtrack of "Phantasm" going in the background -- and they compliment each other perfectly...

Well! You did a fantastic job with this story! It's almost like reading an actual Dr. Seuss book! I don't quite get the final image at the end, but the overall story is amazing! What other Dr. Seuss parodies are you going to create?

Thanks for enjoying it, and letting me know you enjoyed it.

The final image is the same "nautical looking" cultist that bumped into Professor Angell prior to his death. Remember: The Call of Cthulhu is subtitled "Found Among the Papers of the Late Francis Wayland Thurston, of Boston" - so we can assume that the narrator isn't going to be around for much longer now that he knows the truth about the cult.

Kuranes was not modern, and did not think like others who wrote. Whilst they strove to strip from life its embroidered robes of myth, and to shew in naked ugliness the foul thing that is reality, Kuranes sought for beauty alone.
