In this super-sized, ad-free, third issue, Alan Moore continues to re-define horror in this amazing tome of Lovecraftian influenced nightmares.  Providence is an amazing and unique work where Moore has written every cover, every single page, and every nuance of this work to create his most fully-realized vision to date.  In this issue, "A Lurking Fear",  Robert Black visits the Bogg's Refinery in Salem and is introduced to some most peculiar-looking local folks.  And a few denizens with very bad intentions.  Available with Regular, Pantheon, Portrait, Dreamscape Wraparound, Women of HPL, and a special Ancient Tome Incentive cover, all by collaborator Jacen Burrows.

    There are hidden messages in the writing and artwork. The protagonist is a Lovecraftian character who goes against Lovecraft’s beliefs. He’s writing a book that takes him to a place with fish-people. Alan freaking Moore writes this series. I don’t think I have to tell you to read this issue/series, but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway. This is the most interesting series I’ve been keeping up with lately, and your life needs it, even if you don’t know it yet. Pick it up and give it a read, then tell me it disappoints you; I dare you. Read Full Review

    The tension in this issue is unbearable, yet you'll feel compelled to continue. If you're familiar with Lovecraft, you'll shudder with each page. If you're unfamiliar with Lovecraft, you'll find yourselfmaking your way throughsomething that's obviously wrong, but you can't put your finger on it. You'll see more than Black, and you'll be screaming athis choices. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Alan Moore is, thus far, certainly delivering on the promise he made about about bringing back the horror to Lovecraft. The story is compelling, if unsettling at times. It is also important to note that this particular issue has a great deal of nudity in it, often in bizarre situations, so keep that in mind when you're on a foray into the world presented here.
