The Dunwich Horror by Loneanimator The Dunwich Horror by Loneanimator
This is actually a panel from my 10-page comic version of H P Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror" . I did it for a small-press Swedish (mostly humorous) comic book Lovecraft anthology. Since there aren't that many images around showing Wilbur Whateleys mostly-invisible twin I thought I'd post my own attempt at portraying the unnamable.

The Swedish blend in really good with the forbidden tongue. Hm, betyder det att man behöver bli orolig nu? ;)
till vilken tidning var detta

You say it was published in a Lovecraftian anthology in Sweden. Is there a link?

I'm afraid the anthology is not online, but if you get in touch with me at loneanimator@gmail.com I can send you the PDFs.

Thank you! It's a crazy monster when you start piecing together bits of Lovecarft's descriptions.

Very strong genes on his father's side, apparently! This may be the first time the "horror" is calling out in swedish.

Thanks! Why in the name of Yog-Sothoth can't anyone make a decent movie version of this story??

You're welcome!

It's because Lovecraft's writing is open ended, and to short. Modern movies are based on special effects, and they need to have some drama/love interest in them. If they wanted to stay true to the material, the movie would only be about 45 min, and would be pretty underwhelming (since you only actually see the Horror at the end of the story).

Take solace in the fact Del Toro is trying to make At the Mountains of Madness into a movie, and already has the groundwork laid for that :)
