This funny fake college t-shirt is for all those fans of cosmic horror. The shirt reps the fictional Miskatonic University home of the Fighting Cephalopods and it features a graphic of the dark eldtritch god Cthulhu. Both Miskatonic and Cthulhu are the creation of legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, and Miskatonic University serves as the setting for multiple terrifying tales written by the author.
Lovecraft was an influential pulp fiction writer published most notably by Weird Tales in the early 1900s. His work was so influential for genre fiction that it lead to the conception of the term Lovecraftian horror, a subgenre that emphasizes the horror of the unknowable or incomprehensible. His work has spawned a number of direct adaptations and spiritual sequels exploring his unique take on supernatural fiction.
Miskatonic University is located in the fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts where many of Lovecraft's works take place. The college is first mentioned in the 1922 story "Herbert West- Reanimator", and it later appeared in many of his most famous works that made up the Cthulhu Mythos, most notabley "The Dunwhich Horror".
