- Full Description
The signature character of author H. P. Lovecraft's darkly fantastic fiction, Cthulhu is as emblematic for Lovecraft's fans as Darth Vader is for Star Wars adherents. Both feared and worshipped in the stories, Cthulhu has since been the subject of new fiction, artwork, role-playing games, toys, and other items celebrating Lovecraft and fandom for weird tales. This set includes a hand-painted figurine, an altarpiece stand, and a 48-page booklet (that slips into the stand!) discussing the Ancient One's place in Lovecraft's works and in popular culture.
Everything is enclosed is a handsome open-front die-cut display box. We like it...it's probably the most reasonably priced Cthulhu figure we've ever handled. It's small, but pretty cool. I like the way the booklet slips into a slipcase-style back on the display, so that everything is nicely kept together. And appropriately, the book is hidden away, like similar volumes of dark, forbidden knowledge!
The Dreamer Will Awaken--the ancient cosmic being waits dreaming in a sunken city deep in the ocean until the right alignment of stars awakens him, with certain (probably apocalyptic) results for mankind!
