It has been a month since the Thanksgiving week release of Providence #6, and it could be another month’s wait for Providence #7 due in February. No Providence slated for March. What’s a Moore-Burrows-Lovecraft reader to do in the meantime?

Contrary to a widespread cultural misconception, Facts in the Case of Alan Moore’s Providence is in fact far from the only place on the web to read about Providence. Below are some links to articles and podcasts that we’ve enjoyed to date. None of these rises to the level of “must-read” but it is nonetheless fun to see what other people are thinking as they read Providence.

Right now Moore and Burrows are halfway through the twelve issue series. As things progress to their conclusion, there will likely be much more to analyze and much more commentary available.

Some recommended Providence articles:

A couple of recommended Providence podcasts:

  • Silence has some worthwhile episodes discussing Providence: #4 (starts at minute 26) and #6 (Moore mentions start at minute 40, after some false starts Providence talk goes on at minute 57.) Thanks commenter bobsy who is a featured guest on these.
  • Comet Boots opens a number of episodes discussing Providence: #1, #3, #4-5, (starts at minute 5) and #6.

Forums: Robert and I sometimes discuss Providence at Reddit Alan Moore and HP Lovecraft pages.
