Cthulhu is a fictional entity from the mind of writer H. P. Lovecraft and first introduced to the world in the short story “The Call of Cthulhu” which was published in the American pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928. Considered a Great Old One within the pantheon of Lovecraftian cosmic entities, the creature has since been featured in numerous popular culture references. Lovecraft depicts Cthulhu as a gigantic entity worshiped by cultists. Cthulhu’s appearance is described as looking like an octopus, a dragon and a caricature of a human form.
