Sorry folks, this one is a bit of a cheap shot.
I didn't think I'd have anything for this round, but inspiration hit me late last night and I cracked this one off before I toodled off for bed.
Between October 1921 and June 1922 H.P. Lovecraft wrote 'Herbert West - Reanimator' as a serialized short story for a New England penny pulp magazine 'Home Brew'.
It is pretty much acknowledged as Lovecraft's weakest work. He himself hated writing it, but could not turn down the $5 per installment offered by the publisher.
Nonetheless, 'Reanimator' is notable for being one of the first depictions of zombies, and it has many interesting references to Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein', which Lovecraft much admired.
Notwithstanding that the original short story is pretty much crap, it was made into a 1985 film titled 'Re-Animator', starring Bruce Abbott. It retains cult status ('ahem excuse the geek double entendre) amongst Lovecraft dorks like me.
Recently, Peter Rawlik wrote an excellent retelling of Lovecraft's story, taken from the perspective of a rival researcher. If you are a fan of the Cthulhu oeuvre I very much recommend it.
The figure here is from the Strange Aeons' line from Uncle Mike. The figure is cast resin and the detail is a bit soft in places, but it remains suitably disturbing and macabre. I sliced down the base and made up a checked floor for that wonderful Evil Institutional look.
