For myself, this is the iconic image of Cthulhu.


It originally appeared in the October 1979 issue of Heavy Metal magazine. It was my first exposure to the works of H.P. Lovecraft and I drew the head and tentacles on more than one occasion, including massively blown up on the cover of my grade 9 portfolio for my art class.

I’ll admit, at that point the wings did nothing for me.
