Neonomicon: Alan Moore & Jacen Burrows

This week, in addition to a little comic convention that's going on in San Diego (grin), a brand spanking new fantastic Alan Moore comic arrived, called Neonomicon. Here's the Ich Liebe Comics! sound-bite description of this comic: Neonomicon is Silence Of The Lambs meets H.P Lovecraft.

In the first issue of Neonomicon we're introduced to federal agents Merril and Gordon, who are investigating some really grizzly murders and there's another character we see a bit of who was the focus of The Courtyard, a short graphic novella (only $7.99) also by Moore & Burrows. I hope to have some more copies of The Courtyard back in at Alternate Reality Comics soon, but readers of Neonomicon won't be confused if they hadn't read The Courtyard first (but The Courtyard is an excellent self contained story).

For those of you unfamiliar with Neonomicon artist, Jacen Burrows, he has a style akin to Geoff Darrow (Hard Boiled, Big Guy & Rusty) and has also illustrated many comics for Avatar Comics, including Chronicles of Wormwood, Crossed, and 303 (all of which were written by Garth Ennis). Burrows has a very clean line, a highly imaginative style, and is pretty prolific.
