"The Colour Out of Space" is a dark drone comic picture show based on the homonymous story by H. P. Lovecraft.

I’ve always read the image as Lovecraft having the narrator instinctively view the creature in human terms even when it didn’t make sense: i.e. there are no elbows in eldritch extrusions but we are so confined by our world view that we think of a random point where direction sharply changes as a joint, in this case an “elbow” because it is in the middle rather than end of a “limb”. Haden’s theory is certainly interesting though.
