and the beat goes on...

Is there any truth to the rumor that famed arch-cartoonist Windsor McKay actually foresaw the advent of Cathy by including a character nearly identical to the one we know and love today in a particularly gruesome nightmare episode of Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend, one that so horrified newpaper editors that they refused en masse to even publish it, and that was later said to have been the inspirational source for none other than reclusive New England writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft, who once claimed (under the influence of a particularly potent brew of Absinthe) that this proto-Cathy character was what gave him the seed of what became his infamous Cthulu Mythos?

Experts are divided on the conclusion. Extant copies of what has become known as the Rarebit Cathy-Fiend Codex are not known to exist, save for strange and persistent legends of pages of them, bound in human skin, and considered so disturbing that simply laying eyes upon them can drive the reader to opiate addiction, glossolalia, and stark raving lunacy.

Calls to the Antiquities Library at Miskatonic University for confirmation have not yet been returned.
