Yup, the poster for Ron Howard’s upcoming movie The Heart of the Sea was maybe the inspiration for this comic.

This comic strip is best consumed along with some horrible canned food on the side. Also, here’s some news tidbits: 1.) It’s vacation time over here at Optipess Studios – so I will be taking a bit of a break over the next few weeks. Fear not, I plan to return to the regular schedule [...]
Hey, reader! My vacation is sort of over, so here’s a brand new Cthulhu comic for you to gaze at. I hope the old comics posted in the past weeks were tolerable substitutes for new stuff while I was away. Also, I got some very generous donations recently, so thanks for that! Each and every [...]

Well then, here’s a new comic strip. I think this one might be a result of me playing Bioshock 2 for hours on end, even though I guess the only thing these two things have in common is… well, water.
