Gods behaving badly: Candid Cthulhu Camera, part II

It's happened again.

Lord Bassington-Bassington thought it was safe to bring Great Cthulhu along to Trondheim for a conference and lecture on Lovecraft the following evening. He knew that is ended in disaster and debauchery last time he let Cthulhu out of the house, but he figured the Old One wasn't too old to learn from his mistakes (and the grounding that followed).

This evidence, captured by Candid Cthulhu Camera, shows all the sordid details from this visit. We apologise for the dubious quality of some of the shots, but it's hard to think about focus and lighting when an ancient God of evil goes on the rampage.

Here we see Cthulhu eating fatty foods...

...drinking Polish vodka...

...and we'd prefer to not even comment on what we think is going on in this picture.

Luckily, Trondheim's comics maestro Mads Eriksen was able to calm Cthulhu down by reading him a suitably Lovecraftian goodnight story. Thank you, Mr. Eriksen! You saved the day yet again!

Great Cthulhu should now consider himself grounded – for good.


  1. Indeed it is! But the stars are NOT right for this sort of behaviour.

  2. You are, as always, a grumpy puritan, o bassy one. Let an old one have some fun!

  3. He was only trying to blend in, adopting some of the local traditions. Give the poor thing a break!

  4. Martin: We suspect that he WAS trying to copy the local traditions, yes, but we managed to shave off the moustache. Still, that's no excuse. He's a role model to so many Spawn of Cthulhu, and should know better.

  5. Glad to see the Great One having a fun night out !
