Lovecraft In the Comics

This seemed appropriate to Cthulhu & especially some of the modern interpretations of the Mythos to include biblical allegories of Leviathan and Behemoth.* Strange Brew is a horror fan's delight since it is very "Far Side" and a little Gahan Wilson.
* Brian Keene's recent Conqueror Worms deals with this concept. In reality, Leviathan was a crocodile (probably an extinct Palestinian crocodile) and Behemoth was the hippopotamus (again, probably an extinct hippo. Palestine also had lions, and other anmals before the population growth eliminated most indigenous large species near the Jordan River millenia ago).
