Marvel Comics rips off Lovecraft

Look familiar?  This is Marvel Comics' Dweller in Darkness who first appeared in Doctor Strange #30 (1978).  The original "The Dweller in Darkness" was written by August Derleth in 1944.  Ironic, that Marvel ripped off Cthulhu's likeness from Lovecraft, but ripped off the name from August Derleth who many consider to have ripped off Lovecraft; unscrupulously riding the coattails of the Old Gentleman from Providence.
