HP Lovecraft meets Cthulhu

My current pulp campaign--which is sort of a mesh of CoC-type adventures with Rolemaster Pulp rules, has stalled somewhat with Marianne's arrival... we've only had "normal" adventures so far, and every supernatural thing that's been hinted at has turned out to have a very prosaic explanation.

However, as we slowly build towards the terror in true Lovecraftian fashion, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this.

I thought my bait-and-switch of the prosaic explanations for the supernatural was fun, but the juxtaposition of the Family Circus with Cthulhu trumps all.

Right when I'm rereading The Road to Madness too.
