MISC. MANGA, *Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla
Set in 1923, Nikola Tesla after being duped by Edison receives the shock that his would-be bride Amelia Earhart made off with one of his devices which made her disappearance more of a case of interdimensional interference. So, he gets the idea from a kooky patent-seeker to consult H.P. Lovecraft. The author and the inventor soon realize they have a common goal in sealing up the breech between the human world and the realm of elder gods. A Cthulu cult gets in their way as they seek a copy of the Necronomicon to stop the demons.
This is a particularly intriguing comic with a lot more development of the humanity behind Lovecraft and Tesla, even if this is a piece of revisionist history.
