Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer, and Erin Humiston’s Calla Cthulhu is now available on Stela: Comics For Your Phone
After months of anticipation, Stela: Comics For Your Phone has announced that Calla Cthulhu—the Lovecraftian-inspired adventure by Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer, and Erin Humiston—is now available on the Stela app.
Being a teenager isn’t easy. Even more so when you’re Calla, a girl who carries the bloodline of the Great Old Ones in her veins. Instead of normal teen activities, Calla spends her time battling supernatural threats like her Uncle, the King in Yellow. She must resist his call to embrace her own chaotic heritage as well as prevent him from awakening the terrible deity asleep and dreaming in the corpse city of R’lyeh—the Dread Dead One!
Dyer said in the announcement release that while learning to work with the vertical scroll was a challenge, it offers benefits to as storytellers such as controlling pacing, preventing accident peeks ahead, and refining how they reveal things through the movement of the panels on the device.
Perfect for fans of H.P. Lovecraft lore, and the action and adventure of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Calla Cthulhu presents an incredible feat of storytelling from Dorkin, Dyer, and Humiston, presented in Stela’s distinctive vertical scrolling format.
A six chapter series, Stela will release a new Calla Cthulhu installment every Thursday until the end of June.
