Folks, I have terrible news. Larry Latham, the creator of the free, spectacular web comic LOVECRAFT IS MISSING has passed away. I corresponded with Larry several times — he was a great guy, and he offered his art for free. He simply wanted other Lovecraft fans to enjoy it.

Here is the announcement from his wife.

You can read his web comic here.

If you would like to leave Larry’s wife a comment, please do so below and I will make sure that she sees them.

Thank you, Larry, for the joy you brought your fellow Lovecraftians.

  1. iTS JUST AWFUL I found out yesterday, as I have been an avid reader of LIM since 2008.

    Its seen me through illness and homelessness.

    I am concerned that LIM might never make it to Print and Larrys dream will go one unrealized.

    Maybe we can band together and create a kickstarter or Patron and help make it happen

    I shared yesterday ON Google Plus, if anyone would like to say anything; https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AdamBlack/posts/6YboQsRpvvv


  2. It is a worse world without him, but thanks to his work a better world because he was in it. Please convey my condolence to his wife, family, and friends. Very Respectfully, Jared Kline, Colonel US Army, Retired


  3. Fuck Cancer! I discovered his comic several months into what turned into a significant stretch of unemployment. I gorged on this delicious mind candy, and then the source dried up. Now, just as he was moving everything forward again, fuck.


  4. Damn. I am so sad to see this. I lost track of the series for a while but Lovecraft Is Missing got me through a good portion of my Master’s Degree, and seeing each character there, with a little bit of a Tintin atmosphere, was like seeing an old and fiendish friend. My condolences to his wife, and to the rest of us, his readers.


  5. I am so so sorry to hear this news. I stumbled onto “Lovecraft Is Missing” entirely by accident and followed it avidly. How goddamned sad. My sincerest condolences to his wife. What an amazing talent.


  6. i’m truly sorry to hear this news; the passing of a great artist and generous fellow Lovecraftian enthusiast is a loss the world aches to feel. much condolences to his wife and family.


  7. Ugh. So sorry to hear this. Please extend our condolences. I corresponded with him too some time ago. A true gentleman.
