WHO: Warpo, creators of the Legends of Cthulhu retro action figures, announces today its sponsorship of the H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast live event, taking place in Chicago on October 10, 2015, to include an appearance by the Elder God, Cthulhu himself.
WHAT: Cthulhu hasn’t been seen in person since his debut at Gen Con Indy in August, and in a rare public appearance, he’ll be on hand at H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast Live for sanity-inducing photo ops.
Warpo will also host a booth on-site at the event, selling limited-edition products from the Legends of Cthulhu toy line, and exclusive premiums. There will also be a live Cthulhu trivia contest, chock full of Warpo prizes.
