Here’s a peek at the cover for Shotguns v. Cthulhu, our upcoming anthology of action-oriented Lovecraftian tales.

Sans text, the design would look great on a T-shirt. Alas, that’s a category of merchandise publishers have difficulty shifting, so you’ll just have to keep an eye out for the book when it arrives later in 2012.
of course if you did release it sans text some one else would re-release with some variant on the ‘keep calm and carry on’ meme.
What’s the typeface used? Looks like a weird hybrid of Gill Sans and Futura…
It’s called Toronto Subway
