What happens when you take H.P. Lovecraft's tales, shorten them, and replace their florid prose with a rather silly sensibility? You get Patrick Dean's Underwhelming Lovecraft Comic Synopses—which are, fortunately, not underwhelming at all.

This is just one in a series of comic synopses that Dean has launched on his Underwhelming Lovecraft Tumblr, which is also home to his illustrations of Lovecraftian horrors in their bathrobes, reading Ethan Frome, and checking their TV Guides.
