The Shadow Over Innsmouth

The Shadow Over Innsmouth One-Shot

Lovecraftian horror and turn of the century pulp collide in this one-shot from Dynamite. Written by Ron Marz with art by Ivan Rodriquez, the infamous pulp hero The Shadow arrives in a foggy little town on the coast where things are not quite what they seem. Along with his assistant Margo Lane, The Shadow uncovers a plot that involves a cult worshiping the Deep Ones.

The Shadow Over Innsmouth is more than just putting The Shadow up against unknowable, unspeakable horrors. The mystery is more pulp action than existential terror, with spectacular gun battles and strange fish-men all seamlessly combined by Rodriquez. If you're a pulp fan with a Cthulhu sweet tooth, this is a great summer read.

Favorite Moment: "Stories about Innsmouth go way back."
