The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents

The title, along with the drawing itself, reminds me of Lovecraft.

Cthulhu XD

He's one big sea monster god that will bring an Apoctolyptic dark rain of monstrous proportions that will most likely kill everything

YAY HE'LL DESTROY US ALL XD

I remember seeing that in the grim adventures of billy and mandy and south park and heard the story awesome Art BTW XD

Is that canonical?  Do you have a reference for it?
I don't recall seeing such a statement, and I've read an awful lot of the Lovecraft mythos stories.

(Derleth's scratchings don't count, IMHO...)

Letter 617 from 'Selected Letters' explains Cthulhu's geneology and role amongst the GOO

Yeah, Lovecraft actually went into a huge amount of detail with what he planned for the mythos. Derliths EARLY writings aren't actually too far off the bat

Ah hmmm... I have before me a PDF containing Letter 617 (the physical copy of Book IV of Selected Letters is on its way from Amazon, seemingly travelling on the back of an arthritic camel, if I can judge by how long it's taking to get here).  And the family tree in the letter seems to show, first, that Cthulhu descended in direct line from Azathoth, and, second, that HPL himself is a direct descendant of Cthulhu, while Clark Ashton Smith descended from Tsathoggua's branch of the family.  It is, in fact, presented as a genealogy of HPL himself, rather than anything of broader significance.

An asterisk in the tree indicates that Cthulhu was the first "of his line" to inhabit Earth.

Text of the letter is largely devoted to HPL's upcoming move to cheaper quarters.

Hmmmm.....

Difficult to say from this exactly what Cthulhu's role among the GOO might have been.  :-)

I like the sense of ambiance here, it really adds to the narrative that perhaps this isn't something he's REALLY seeing.

You know you're in a bad situation when it's ignoring you.
Because he knows your there, you play part in his scheme.

He knows you in and out, and he will invade your mind.
