‘The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar’ Raises $9,500+ on Kickstarter

Horror author H. P. Lovecraft meets picture book creator Eric Carle in Ben Mund‘s book, The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar. With 11 days left in the campaign, this Kickstarter project has drawn more than $9,500 from its supporters. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Cthulhu has eaten your childhood! We are publishing The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar, a full color, fully-illustrated book in the style of a classic piece of children’s literature—not actually intended for a young audience. A cthulhupillar eats more and more to sate his ravenous appetite … and what shall he become?”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
