I had an idea for a comic that somewhat dealt with eldergods and old ones. I'm from New England and got into Lovecraft and horror comics.
It was partly a paranormal romance, but with horror and thriller elements. It involved characters embroiled with a cult like church. This church was popular among celebrities and was started by a sci-fi comic artist. A main character gets involved a group from an anime image board, of all places, that decided to go against this cult. Though while fighting the cult and its fear gods, the "hactivists" unleash their own green chaos god to fight with them.
The weirdest thing? I came up with this idea in like 2006. Little did I know that ten years later mainstream news would be talking about how a pesky green cartoon frog was affecting the US presidential election. Or even that a group of anime nerds from 4chan would join protesters of a certain real life church that shall not be named for legal reasons. Hell, this was even before the South Park ep.
Sometimes I think Grant Morrison is right about storytelling being a way to tap into energies and cosmic knowledge. Then again, even more down to earth authors like Warren Ellis are known for forecasting future events. Ellis just studies history and follows cutting edge stories to extrapolate where things might be going. I guess I just noticed things happening, consciously and subconsciously, to come out with a story that reflected where things were going.
If only I had got it published somehow. Damn.
