Weird Tales of the Dark Knight by genesischant Weird Tales of the Dark Knight by genesischant
A Batman-Lovecraft pastiche. It's so perfect that no one (well, technically Mignola) has really done it yet. Unlike Mignola's work, this Lovecraftian Batman is more true to the Lovecraftian hero.

Professor Wayne of Miskatonic University, his secretary Miss Gordon, and his ward, Richard Grayson.

Does this Bruce Wayne wear a "Bat-Man" costume, or does that factor into the story? Is Cthulhu involved?

Now I'm really pumped about this. Write this story, sir! (Please :))

I like it too. (She is based a little bit on Lovecraft's real life wife, and Bruce here is based a bit on Lovecraft.)

Intriguing! What do you plan on doing with this concept? If you were writing a tale in the style of Lovecraft, I'd be all over that! Batman + Lovecraft = Batlove greatness

I have a storyline, but I'd probably set it up as an illustrated short story, if I ever get around to it.

Do it! Well... I know how hard writing is, and comic books are even more difficult, but if ever a concept had great potential, it is this! The main event: Joker tries to wake sleeping Cthulhu???? :D

If I find myself with the time, you will witness to the travesty that is me trying to write both Batman and Lovecraft, hahaha.

The twisted macabre madman that is the Joker would sound amazing described in a lovecraftian style. Especially as he would probably be more like a the mad king of some over explained night time court, Its two faced Jester happy and sad at the same time as he laughs tears to the amusement. This needs a graphic novel unless someone could do it justice as a novel.

Ive typed too much again havent I...

Hahaha, Bruce is modeled after Lovecraft himself, a bit. He was a weird looking dude.
