I went to my local comic book store today (The Bookstan’! Beaumont! Shout-out!) and saw the COOLEST. THING. EVER.
A giant frickin’ Cthulu figure.
Cthulu. Created by H.P. Lovecraft in 1928, it’s an ancient, evil god-type thingy. Since Lovecraft created it, it’s been adapted (stolen?) by various sources, including role-playing games, comic books, and South Park.
Maybe I’m hitting a second childhood, but I want that figure. I know exactly where to put it, too; I have this ladder-type shelf unit where I keep my PS3 and Blu-Ray player, and there is an empty shelf just begging to have the dark god Cthulu on it.
Lovecraft couldn’t write dialogue for shit, but Cthulu.
