Boom Studios Cthulhu“There is a great one sleeping that will hear… The Calling”

Yesterday, BOOM! Studios released a teaser image for a series coming out July 2010 that simply contained the words “IA! IA! CTHULHU FHTAGN!”

Today at the C2E2, the comic book publisher revealed the name of the upcoming series — The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles — along with some details.

The on-going HP Lovecraft-inspired comic, which will be written by Michael Alan Nelson (Fall Of Cthulhu, 28 Days Later) and Johanna Stokes (Death Valley, Savage Brothers), is a supernatural horror series with a modern spin on the Cthulhu mythos. Sean Phillips (Marvel Zombies) and Federico Piatti will provide the covers, while Christopher Possenti is doing the interior art. 


The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles will join BOOM!’s previous Lovecraftian titles Cthulhu Tales and Fall Of Cthulhu.

See below for the official synopsis, as well as the covers for The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles #1.

“If you are a fan of Lovecraft, if you worship Cthulhu, if you love horror, don’t miss this book,” said BOOM! Studios Marketing Director Chip Mosher. “This is BOOM! at its best, returning to our horror roots with a great new title that is guaranteed to creep you out… and drive you mad!”

Synopsis

In THE CALLING: CTHULHU CHRONICLES a cruise ship comes to port with hundreds aboard dead. But why? Clayton Diggs is a pharmaceuticals salesman who discovers his sister has committed herself to an insane asylum. She’s checked herself in, fearing she’ll hurt herself or someone else. And she’s afraid that something is out there… All across the world, moves are made, hands are being dealt, and momentum is shifting, while ordinary people in an ordinary world find themselves drawn by fate to see darkness and despair unlike anything they ever could imagine. Meanwhile, a cult sets their plan in motion, believing that there is a great one sleeping that will hear THE CALLING.
