The Doom That Came to Sarnath, Page 9

I’m sure I’ll find things to fix about this page later, but for now… it’s up! Behold! I really enjoyed drawing this one.

While I draw I’ve recently been listening to’s Call of Cthulhu podcast “Tatters of the King,” but I’m finally down to the last episode, where I predict, in about 90 minutes, there’s going to be a massive TPK and everyone will die horribly. We’ll see. In the meantime, I’ve also been working on (1) my new Lovecraft project, (2) my role-playing card game, and (3) other weirdness I can’t even talk about yet. One thing of note for Seattle area folks: I’ll be attending Geek Girl Con 2012 on August 11-12, selling comics on the floor and running a roleplaying game! So please come on by and say hello!

While I’m here, if you’re interested in more of my comics, why not check out The Legend of Bold Riley or my Lovecraft one-shot in Beards?

    I’ve been following the Sarnath saga since the start, and dropping-by most days in case something fresh has been posted (it’s the day you DON’T check a regular webpage that something important happens!). I’ve been impressed by much I’ve seen so far, especially elements like the variation in panel size, and your willingness to experiment with options like the double-page spread for Page Six. To me, that’s all helped in capturing Lovecraft’s relentless, extensive description, building up the might of Sarnath and its apparently overwhelming powerful grandeur.

    However, for reasons I don’t quite understand yet, that vertiginous left-hand panel on Page Nine really knocked me out from the moment I first saw the new page had been uploaded! That just captures Sarnath perfectly for me.

    Keep ’em coming!

    The tonal gradation of the first panel, showing the sweep of distance from the middle ground to the far horizon, is wonderful. Those towers are tall!

    Incidentally, your depiction brought to mind the Porcelain Tower of Nanking, the lost monument described in “Dr. Shuker’s Casebook”, a compendium of true-life marvels and mysteries. It sounds very like something HPL or CAS would have liked.
