If you’ve followed my ramblings on here for any length of time, then you already know how much I love Lovecraft’s work, particularly the Cthulhu mythos. As I’ve stated up-teen times, the man was a genius and way ahead of his time. The truth in this statement can be proven by the number of authors and artists who pay homage to his work even now.
Such is the case with Andrey Fetisov’s CALL OF CTHULHU: THE COLORING BOOK. With this collection, Fetisov and the fine folks at Chaosium offer up a nice variety of scenes to color from several of Lovecraft’s tales. Even if you’re not a fan of the author, or if you’re not interested in horror, this assemblage is still a must-have for any coloring enthusiast looking for originality and fun.
If you’re not familiar with CALL OF CTHULHU: THE COLORING BOOK, here is the book’s description courtesy of Chaosium:
Enjoy coloring an amazing array of scenes, with striking images from H.P. Lovecraft’s stories¬—and the Call of Cthulhu RPG his imagination inspired (Horror on the Orient Express, Masks of Nyarlathotep, The Fungi from Yuggoth and more).
I was going to color a few pages to post with this review, but my coloring skills are greatly lacking, and therefore the impact of the pictures would be lost. Thus, you’ll have to be content with checking out the uncolored shots instead.
The pictures in this book are brought to life with striking and vivid detail. Each tells a story within itself, but it also complements the source material to a striking degree.
As you can see, the pictures have a high degree of fine points, and they do a fantastic job conveying Lovecraft’s dark themes.
As a rabid fan of his work, I’m proud to share this coloring book with you, and I suggest you snag a copy while you can. I wager these will be highly sought after, and therefore there’s no telling how long they will be available. Click the link above to head over to Chaosium’s website and get your copy today!
