«Stay Tentacly» was written to answer a call for entries of 2018 Fumetto Festival's comics contest, in Luzern, Switzerland. The theme was «Enough». It ended up as a geo-queer, anti-futurist manifest, for I had just finished reading TJ Demos' Against the Anthropocene when I heard about the contest; I only started working after I got hold of and read Donna Haraway's Staying with the Trouble, for I had the sense it would be fundamental – and I owe it much. The attempt at rehabilitating H.P. Lovecraft by Alan Moore in the comics «Providence» and «Neonomicon» also proved inspiring.
