We’re still figuring things out and adding more detail, but we’ve published our basic annotations for the first issue of Providence.
Alan Moore and Jacen Burrows’ new H.P. Lovecraft comic Providence #1 was released two days ago, on Wednesday May 27. It’s the first chapter of a twelve issue series. Providence #1 references plenty of Lovecraft short stories, of course, mainly “Cool Air” and “The Horror at Red Hook”, plus Lovecraft antecedents including Robert W. Chambers’ 1895 book The King in Yellow and even Edgar Allen Poe’s Edgar Allan Poe’s 1845 short story “The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar.”
If you look at them soon, check back later, too, because we’ll continue to revise and embellish the Providence #1 annotations in the coming weeks, and then update as future issues shed new light on what has transpired previously. Did you spot anything we missed? Let us know in the comments.
