    MARVEL COMICS, IN A CTHULHU MOOD.

    Here’s another glimpse at what might have been: A 1972 Roy Thomas memo proposes, among a handful of launches and title changes, a series “hosted” (a la EC’s Crypt Keeper) by the Doctor Strange villain Nightmare.

    And what’s this? An anthology comic called THE MACABRE WORLD OF H.P. LOVECRAFT?!? A few months later, an issue of Journey into Mystery would feature an adaptation of Lovecraft’s “The Haunter of the Dark,” but no series ever materialized.

      Man … the damage this would have done to pre-teen me. I wish Marvel had gone through with these plans. :)

      The Macabre World of H.P. Lovecraft?! Does Marvel still have the rights to this? Could someone write it, like, today?
