Ahh Cthulhu, quite possibly the scariest creature ever born of the mind of man. HP Lovecraft’s initial short story, The Call of Cthulhu, first published 1928 establish Cthulhu as a malevolent entity trapped in an underwater city in the South Pacific called R’lyeh. Described as being “…an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature…. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque scaly body with rudimentary wings.” The imprisoned Cthulhu is apparently the source of constant anxiety for mankind at a subconscious level, and also the subject of worship by a number of evil cults. The short story asserts the premise that while currently trapped Cthulhu will eventually return, until then let us celebrate the dark lord with these awesome Cthulhu inspired t-shirts:
