Halloween Week: H.P. Lovecraft's Mythos Reigns Supreme In This 'Fall Of Cthulhu: Apocalypse' Preview

'Fall of Cthulhu: Apocalypse' #1Halloween Week continues here on Splash Page with more exclusive interviews and previews of the scariest comics hitting shelves in the days to come. Check back each day for more horror hailing from the world of comics.

Here at the Splash Page hacienda, we've always said that nothing says Halloween like a massive, tentacled beast from the void that inspires madness at the mere glimpse of its visage.

Yes, we've always said that -- and now we finally (and thankfully) have a reason.

Scheduled to hit shelves in December, "Fall of Cthulhu: Apocalypse" #1 kicks off a new series that promises to tie together Boom Studios' various "Cthulhu" titles in a single arc that explores what happens when the Great Old One himself arrives for a little visit.

No stranger to the world of comics (or film, for that matter -- check out John Carpenter's "In the Mouth of Madness" this Halloween, and tell 'em we sent you), H.P. Lovecraft's most popular creation has carved out a pretty successful niche for itself at Boom, with several ongoing series and miniseries holding their own against mainstream superhero fare.

In order to get you in the Halloween spirit, Boom Studios has provided Splash Page readers with this 5-page preview of "Fall of Cthulhu: Apocalypse" #1, written by Michael Alan Nelson with art by Mat Santolouco.
