September 30th, 2008 – Los Angeles, CA – The Apocalypse is upon us! Since the beginning of the FALL OF CTHULHU storyline, readers have been anxiously awaiting the moment when all the tale’s threads begin to tie together into the ultimate war between gods and men. As of now, they wait no longer. Let the Apocalypse begin!
“FALL OF CTHULHU: APOCALYPSE is what we’ve all been waiting for,” said FALL OF CTHULTHU series writer Michael Alan Nelson. “This is the final showdown between ALL of our characters, great, small, and unseen. If you’ve been itching for some full-on divine smackdowns coupled with violent descents into irreparable madness, then you won’t want to miss APOCALYPSE.”
FALL OF CTHLUHU has been BOOM!’s flagship series for the past few years with critical acclaim and a strong fan base since its first issue. As the series progressed, Nelson’s vision of H.P. Lovecraft’s mythos spawned several popular BOOM! titles, from the monthly anthology CTHULHU TALES, Nelson’s FALL OF CTHULHU: GODWAR, NECRONOMICON and the upcoming NYARATHOTEP.

“Many critics chastise writers for using other properties or characters if they deviate from the original material even a scotch,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid. “But at the same time, critics love to pounce on writers who don’t develop the pre-existing properties. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. What I like about Michael is his ability to do justice to the source material while still utilizing it to tell his own unique story. APOCOLYPSE is where he gets to tell his masterpiece.”
