Calla Ctulhu is the latest from Eisner winner Evan Dorkin (Milk & Cheese, Beasts of Burden, Eltingville Club). This childrens book dives into the universe of H.P Lovecraft in this fun adventerous tale. Previously published in digital format by Stela, Calla Ctulhu follows female protagonist Calla Tafalli as she embarks on an action packed adventure full of mythos and mystery. Perfect for children 8 and up.
Being a teenager isn't easy--especially after you learn you carry the bloodline of Lovecraft's Great Old Ones in your veins. Instead of a summer job and checking out colleges, Calla Tafali finds herself battling supernatural monsters, human assassins, and her uncle, The King in Yellow. She must resist his call to embrace her own chaotic heritage and join the "family business," as well as prevent the awakening of the terrible deity asleep and dreaming in the corpse city of R'lyeh--the Dread Dead One! Prepare yourself for weird action, adventure and mystery in the Mighty Mythos Manner
