  1. When Providence is complete you should seriously consider publishing your annotations and articles. Perhaps hit up Moore and Burrows for an interview and some peeks at their production work.

  2. Glad to see this blog. Providence has been one of the most beguiling comic series I’ve kept up with in a long time. It’s nice to have such a great resource to bounce off of.

  3. (Didn’t know where to put this)

    Good news – comiclist.com’s list for “Next Week” say Providence #6 will be out on the coming Wednesday, much earlier than the December schedule!


    • Will do! Thanks for putting this together. (I was thinking we should be doing a page like this – with several key “what to read first” stories before each issue. We did some of these as “what to read before Providence X” posts – but we never got around to fixing and compiling those.)


  4. Congratulations for this fantastic initiative!
    Your website is as an indispensable part of reading *Providence* as *The Courtyard* and *Neonomicon* are. Like a single (and unique!) experience of reading spreading on 4 media (not mentioning HPL works, to start with!).
    About Mangonebulax’ order list suggestion (*How to Read Alan Moore’s Providence*), *The Courtyard* and *Neonomicon* should be added to the list since the whole masterpiece isn’t complete without them.
    Concerning *The Courtyard*, I was extremely surprised not to find any comments page about it on the site. 😯 I think it deserves the attention too, and would certainly lead to delightful observations and theories. 🤩
