This is the issue when all you know changes.  The finest horror work ever written comes to a conclusion you cannot imagine.  All the threads are weaving into a tapestry of history re-imagined.  Or was our history the fiction?  Time to wake up, he who slumbers.  This is Providence...  or is this Yuggoth?  Alan Moore's masterpiece draws to a close, and nothing will be the same.   Available with Regular, Pantheon, Portrait, Dreamscape Wraparound, Women of HPL, the painted Weird Pulp and a special Ancient Tome Incentive cover, all by collaborator Jacen Burrows.

    Watchmen is arguably the apex of super hero comics. Providence is the apex of Lovecraft horror. Every story, character, terror is in this series. Lovecraft's original mythos reach their logical/insane end with this story. I've never read The Courtyard or Neonomicon and their stories are key to this conclusion.I've read about them, and one character plays a major role in this series' conclusion. However, this series, and this issue, can be enjoyed without reading them. This is not for children, by any means, but if one is willing to see the fate of humanity, this will read like a dream/nightmare. This is the book of the week. Besides, reading it will make "it" occur all the more quickly. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    I don't give out 10s lightly. The end of Providence is an incredibly satisfying payoff to a story 14 years in the making -- 18 issues that tell a story that swallows the Mythos whole and extrudes it back out as a comprehensive, incredibly detailed 4-dimensional solid.
