Sorry, fellow Deviants, but I really have to tell you this weird piece of news.
I have to confess that I've been (and I am currently) a Wikipedia contributor, mostly scribbling in scientific pages and Cthulhu Mythos sections too, of course (naturally, I'd say)
I use to scroll down the Table of Great Old Ones
where sometimes I find additions from Wikipedia users and I myself often add new entries as I find verified ones in terms of Bibliography and Reliability. Since 2010, I think, I've been adding to the list of Great Old Ones and elsewhere needed several Mythos entities - some also depicted in my artwork - like Dzéwà
and Pegasus Press
roleplay games and/or lesser known Lovecraft or other Cthulhu Mythos contributors' stories.
Certainly I could expect everything in updates but... seeing an original Great Old One of mine listed in the Great Old One Table
, which I've loosely related to Ann K. Schwader's "much cooler" Ammutseba
and Lovecraft's ravenous Flying Polyps Race
. Do you remember?
Scroll down the Table of Great Old Ones
(if it's still there) and check.
I'm not displeased to see my art included in the Mythos, on the contrary, but getting to know that it's matching with the mysterious "crocodile-headed beast with three legs and a dorsal row of tentacles" hinted by Lovecraft in "Medusa's Coil" (1939) leaves me bewildered (moreover, do you see where the three legs
are in that formless bodymass?). Although there is a link to Egyptian and pre-Egyptian times, Kthaw'keth hasn't anything to do with Lovecraft's (so far) nameless abomination. Perhaps the "Eusuchian" snout and the writhing appendages of Kthaw'keth have led the anonymous contributor to type something not entirely correct.
All I could do is edit the entry and type Comics
in place of MC in Reference column, because it's an original entity to be released in the Cthulhu Mythos comics of mine. If anyone is going to definitely remove Kthaw'keth from the table, I won't be (too much) sad.
