We are still, yawn, wiping the sleep from the corners of our collective eyes, but the Facts in the Case of Alan Moore’s Providence team has finished our first-draft annotations for Providence #8.
As with Moore and Burrows earlier issues, there is plenty on the surface, and lots references buried below. The issue features the then 29 year old Howard Phillip Lovecraft himself (!) plus his maternal grandfather. Additionally there are Lord Dunsany, Randolph Carter (or Randall Carver if you please), dreamscapes, ghouls, ghasts, cats, klansmen, a Civil War general, legionnaires, and plenty more.
Dig a little deeper and readers will find Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo, and even the return of Merrill Brears and Johnny Carcosa, prominent in Neonomicon and The Courtyard.
Read all about it – right here.
And, of course, use the comments section to let us know what we missed or got wrong.
