Cthulhu Tales #10 (Boom! – Rahner / Unai / Lester / Chee / Nelson / Aritz)
FALL OF CTHULHU writer Michael Alan Nelson pens the first part of a special tale of creeping chaos that ties directly into the events of the FALL OF CTHULHU: APOCALYPSE series, providing new insights and background into that epic tale! Also: “Comeback Tour” written by Jeff (SAM & MAX) Lester!
Boom! keeps bringing all sides of Cthulhu and the old gods gang! This anthology series has something for everyone… well, everyone who is a little demented that is.
Rite to Life is a horrific tale, dark and desperate, about the apocalyptic fate of a child marked for sacrifice and how driven his “family” is to get him back. Then you have part 1 of Where am I?, which is more of an action story and is in continuity with Godwar and Fall of Cthulhu: Apocalypse.
Comeback Tour is a comic relief story where the four elder gods have formed a rock band to try to gain devotion from a new generation. It’s a very witty and intelligent story. Three different stories, three different quality teams… you can’t get much better than this for a monthly horror anthology!
