Thank you very much - I'm trying to push myself to do more backgrounds instead of shying away from them. They're such a huge challenge for me.

Your backgrounds are really superb. That tower with the glowing insignia? Nice! I promise I will not copy you. ;)

Also, the driver dude reminds me a little of Boilerplate...

Hurry up with the next update! lol

Haha, awesome, I didn't think of Boilerplate. He's been compared more often to a Hellboy character, the steampunk doctor guy, I think.

But I appreciate it, I do try - and the next update is already done! As well as the next five weeks worth. It'll go up on wednesday, don't you worry, don't you worry...

Well constructed page. I especially like that tower (what is it about creepy green glow that really pushes the Mythos mood? I used it in the nasty future bits in my comic, too).

It seems that your more monster-y characters are NOT, in fact, a unified front. Interesting...

I remember your use of green yes - for some reason it invokes a sense of otherworldliness, for sure.

Who knows what side anyone's on!? It's a bunch of people suspicious of each other and it's slowly spiraling...

Awesome comic, rated 5 stars because we had to, our own comic is very Lovecraft inspired but not in his world for fear of copyright issues.

Hey neat, thank you!

The consensus is that it's free of copyright now, so anyone can use the Lovecraft mythos without worry. The only thing you have to worry about are trademarked phrases like "The Call of Cthulhu" and such.

You can find lists of what is and is not able to be used!

We were under the impression Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian takes place in the Lovecraft universe and since it's published by Marvel Comics some of Lovecraft's world are subject to copyright.

It should take place in Hyborea, I think. At least for me my comic does not take place in those times, so I'm good :)

This is really, really late, but I felt that I should make a comment; I'm pretty sure that, if an item is in the Public Domain, even a big company like Marvel using it for something doesn't take it out. It takes the specific interpretation out, yes, but not it in and of itself.

Yeah, I don't think I'm in any trouble, really. I don't have any real need to refer to it as Hyborea if/when they end up travelling back in time to the era, there's a number of different names for it anyway.

Thank you, though, for sure!
