Yeah, Cthulhu has a thing for George apparently. Back in the first strip of this arc he actually says something like, "Zombie, come outside... You sexy thing!"
This arc has just been me playing with things I think are funny about Cthulhu and adding things that I felt made sense... the mind flayers as his priests and now the "inking" incident.
Hey, if you're going to ECCC, that's in Seattle from March 28th to the 30th, stop by artist alley table K-11 and see me. I'll have Shamblers shirts, stickers, and prints for sale!
