This is exactly what it needs to be to convey the feeling of the scene. The dual-meaning of the name gives it a real bit of punch too, but then, that's why they picked you to make art for the card, right? I could go on about it, but like I said, they picked you for a reason, the art is solid. I love things from Lovecraft, and I love how you've managed to stick it right on the edge; just like he probably has no idea what he's fighting, so to do we only get a glimpse. The desperation is apparent, but I have a feeling this guy isn't scared. You've managed to convey HIS feeling exceptionally well, along with his obvious defiance of the thing he is battling.
An excellent piece of work that I will be using for the wallpaper on my desktop, phone and, hope to see it soon in my own CoC card games!
