Cthulhu dreams in R’lyeh: Neonomicon by Alan Moore

Alan Moore's Neonomicon

Alan Moore‘s, Bram Stoker Award winning graphic novel, Neonomicon is a mind-blowing, shocking addition to H.P. Lovecraft inspired / Cthulhu mythos fiction.  Illustrated by Jacen Burrows, who’s art you might recognize from the frightening series, Crossed (another very SERIOUS horror comic).  If your an Alan Moore fan or H.P. Lovecraft fan you have no choice but to pick this up.

Neonomicon was adapted from Moore‘s previous Lovecraftian short story, The Courtyard (which is collected in this graphic novel).  Unlike other fictions inspired by the old gods, Moore modernizes the genre, adding critique to the controversial unspoken elements of racism and sex.  Neonomicon is one of Alan Moore‘s darkest works to date and has already created quite a stir, inciting some libraries to ban the book.  So get it while it’s hot!

Warning:  Neonomicon puts the M in mature and the E in explicit.  Not only is it not for kids, but do not…I repeat DO NOT eat Chinese food while reading this book.  Mid-way through the book I just about lost my lo mein noodles.  It was that awesome!

Jacen Burrows!  You owe me lunch!  *shaking fist*
