In 1640, pirates and lovers Angus “Bloody Red” Buchanan and Crimson Kate O’Toole and their respective crews battle a sorcerer who worships the Old One Dagon. The pirates also duel with the Deep Ones, and the sunken city of Y’ha-nthlei is mentioned. The sorcerer says, “That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons, even death may die.” After vanquishing their foes, Angus and his first mate Mose Cooper discuss where they want to go next. Mose wants to search for the Golden Fleece, but Angus wants to visit an island off the coast of Sumatra, twelve degrees south and seventy-eight degrees east. The Old Ones, Dagon, the Deep Ones, Y’ha-nthlei, and the phrase “That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons, even death may die” are from H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. The island near Sumatra is Skull Island, King Kong’s home.
