Awesome story.
I've been a fan of these artists since they started with Kings of an Endless Sky on Tor.com.

Love the Artwork. would love to be at this level myself, but I am but a fledgling compared to these masters.

Wow! That ending has quite a kick!

I usually inhale these long-form art pieces, but this one was really stunning! The close-up on the eyes in particular -- bravo.

Beautiful. It doesn't even need the words.

PS. Thanks for the scrolling vs. paginated option!

And I'm screaming on the previous page With Our Bones! And I was desperately hoping that I was wrong, but alas, cliches are more abundant than fleas on a tick hound. (Yes that's a cliche, in case no one noticed.)

Seriously, I know it's a comic, but couldn't the level of writing been bumped up a notch to match the artwork?

And @ 4. The reason you didn't need the words is because they were so common your brain was shutting them out.

(And I'm only going to mention passive voice, like a flatus at work, where everyone pretends not to notice, but it still stinks.)

I must confess to being pretty clueless when it comes to all things 'Cthulhu' (although I have been loving all the fantastic artwork in the Cthulhu feature this month - thanks Irene!).

However, this short comic just blew me away - pitch perfect and the artwork, WOW!

You guys really captured the power of the ocean and the octopus guy (apologies again for my ignorance :)

Your work just keeps on getting better and better - I especially love the atmospheric lighting in this one - stunning!

Looking forward to more

Cheers,
Jonathan

Reminds me a little bit of Hodgson's "Out of the Storm." (As well as "Call of Cthulhu" of course.)

Great art. The writing works well with it, I think.

Um. I may be the only one thinking this but, I dont get it. What exactly is going on in the last page that makes being mentally assaulted by an eldritch abomination, a gigantic sentient life form presumably theyve never seen before, seem quaint in comparison? Are those supposed to be smoking ruins in the distance, or something?

Copy/paste what Kamrom said.
