H.P. Lovecraft’s Commonplace Book…!…?

I just came across an article online, which supposedly has a transcript of a commonplace book written by none other than HP Lovecraft. There are definitely some Lovecraftian elements to Of8, so this is quite a nice treat for me and may be rather useful… This reads like an HP Lovecraft commonplace book, but I haven’t seen any information anywhere on where it …

The Return Of The Real: Berserk Is Back!

Berserk is one of the creative properties out there which I truly consider as one of the fathers of Of8.

Mr. Barlowe is quite an accomplished and talented artist/writer. He’s worked on a bunch of super high profile Hollywood flicks (Avatar, all of Guillermo Del Toro’s recent stuff, etc) and has managed to create a very interesting and unique …
