Lovecraft meets Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Issue #84 of the Elvira, Mistress of the Dark comic book starring the titular character features the story "Shadow of Sinnsport," a direct reference to "The Shadow Over Innsmouth."  The Lovecraft character, though obviously picturing the author himself, is named Professor Lucifer Conal of Mastadonic University.  It revolves around the search for the Heckronomicon and includes lots of the other puns you'd expect from an Elvira comic.  It features a fishmen attack and a decent, if not super cliché, ending.
