Ben Templesmith takes on H.P. Lovecraft’s “Dagon”

I’m a huge fan of Ben Templesmith’s┬ádark, eldritch art style, which even he admits is deeply influenced by the Cthulhu mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. Templesmith is the creator of several dark, spooky horror comics, the most famous being 30 Days of Night because of the movie adaptation.

In Dagon, Templesmith is adapting one of Lovecraft’s earlier short stories, a tale of deep-sea sleeping gods and horrors. He plans on using the full text of the story, with illustrations, and releasing it as a hardcover book. Higher pledge levels even get original artwork from the book!
