Am I Going Mad, Snowy?

Usually when Whitworth sends me these early morning “You must blog this” e-mails I just blow him off. But this time, he’s right, Regina needs to know about this…..

Murray Groat, a really fantastic illustrator from the UK, has done a series of Lovecraft-Herge mashups. Insane genius.

There are three more up on his site. He also has a deviantART page where you can buy prints of some of his work (although, not of these Tintin covers… yet….).

  1. As a long-time H.P Lovecraft fan, I’m glad to see someone taking the challenge that Lovecraft’s purple-prose descriptions pose for illustrators. Still, there’s more of Futurama than Lovecraft in the R’lyeh cover above!

  2. Oooh. Now that you mention it… I see what you mean. Maybe it’s because there’s more Herge in Futurama than people give it credit for?

  3. There is absolutely zero chance that Futurama creator Matt Groening is not a gigantic Tintin fan. So I’d say, yes.

    Trivia: Groening edited a university paper and published stuff by cartoonist Charles Burns, who’s also a huge Tintin fan.
