  Cover Issue 11 KRAKEN


Down in dark ocean swirling deeps,

An ancient, eldritch life form sleeps,

Fell creature from time's very dawn,

Foul product of an evil spawn.

Out of its time and out of space,

It lingers, last remnant of its race,

Grotesque, gigantic, full of power

Sleeping until the summoning hour,

That time which ancient legends tell

Will call a creature up from Hell.

Will raise the creature from the deep,

And wake the Kraken from its sleep.
