Just announced today: Avatar will be publishing a series of ten extra variant covers for Providence #11. This new limited edition set are “Century” variant covers drawn by Raulo Caceres, artist of Moore-curated anthology Cinema Purgatorio‘s Code Pru. Each cover depicts a scene from Lovecraft fiction. Each Century issue retails for a whopping $39.99, with the set of ten retailing for just $285. While supplies last, purchase Century variants at Comics Cavalcade.

Facts Providence has a new page specifically for annotations of these Century covers.

These Century variants are the only Providence artwork so far that is not the product of Providence’s hard-working artist Jacen Burrows. Though perhaps Mitch Jenkin’s photograph at the end of Providence #7 also counts in this category.

The Century covers bring the expected total of Providence covers to 99. There are twelve issues with seven regular variations (regular, Dreamscape, Pantheon, Portrait, Weird Pulp, Women, and Ancient Tome) plus four ghoul covers for issue #7. That is not counting collected editionsContinue reading

Alan Moore’s latest project Cinema Purgatorio was announced this morning via Kickstarter. Watch Moore’s clever droll promotional video. As of 10 a.m. it is already fully funded, but, while supplies last, readers can still get some handsome Providence premiums: autographed copies of Providence #1 and a new Kickstarter exclusive Providence Act 1 book that collects Providence #1-4.

For Cinema Purgatorio, due out from Avatar Press in May 2016, Moore joins forces with his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen collaborator Kevin O’Neil, plus additional features by Kieron Gillen / Ignacio Calero, Garth Ennis / Raulo Caceres, Christos Gage / Gabriel Andrade (Moore’s collaborator on Crossed Plus One Hundred), and Max Brooks and Michael DiPascale (Moore and Burrows’ collaborator on Providence Weird Pulp variant covers.)

Cinema Purgatorio looks fun – who is up for collaborating on annotations?
