Nightmares of Providence digital-only Bonus Terrors cover – art by Daniel Gete

As part of the Avatar Press Providence Compendium Kickstarter, some backers received the Nightmares of Providence “Bonus Terrors” digital-only add-on.

The 18-page black and white Terrors features artwork by Jacen Burrows, Sebastian Fiumara, Daniel Gete, Matt Martin, Juan Jose Ryp, Ivan Rodriguez, and Dheeraj Verma. It contains little directly connected to Moore and Burrows – mostly consisting of HP Lovecraft-inspired monsters (many extensively tentacled), mostly in full-page format.

New full Providence collection is on sale for $59.99 – cover art by Jacen Burrows and Michael DiPascale

Today, Avatar Press announced that the wait is nearly over; Providence will soon be available in a new single volume “Compendium” edition. The $59.99 480-page hardback is available to order today, and is expected to be printed in early 2021. There is a $29.99 paperback planned, but not yet for sale. There is also a new tie-in 48-page Nightmares of Providence Lovecraft art comic, available with at least nine different covers. There are also some new Neonomicon covers and a “gold seal Stella Sapiente bundle” of sealed issues of Neonomicon and Providence.

Avatar’s inhouse Comics Cavalcade store is selling the new hardcover, as well as several collector sets of these right now through October 24 – in advance of a planned Kickstarter campaign coming soon thereafter.
