Welcome to the Grand Opening of Miskatonic U (the webcomic; the university has been around a bit longer)! It’s the story of Winston Coward, a panphobic freshman (Class of 1915) who worries about every mundane aspect of college: classes, learning to socialize, surviving hazing rituals.

But Winston has no clue how much he actually has to worry about, because as many fans of H.P. Lovecraft know, Miskatonic University is home to forbidden books of arcane lore about (and therefore potential interdimensional gateways for) blasphemous gods and otherworldly beings. It’s kind of like living on a Hellmouth, except there’s no Buffy.

What Lovecraft fans may not know is that Miskatonic University’s campus extends into additional dimensions and is a place of learning for young members of the Great Race of Yith, a race so inquisitive about the nature of the cosmos that throughout time and space they swap minds with the lesser races they study. So there’s that.

I hope you find Miskatonic U insightful, mind-bending, and of course, funny.
