Comic book legend Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, FROM HELL) and brilliant artist Jacen Burrows deliver a chilling tale of Lovecraftian horror Brears and Lamper, two young and cocky FBI agents, investigate a fresh series of ritual murders somehow tied to the final undercover assignment of Aldo Sax -the once golden boy of the Bureau, now a convicted killer and inmate of a maximum security prison. From their interrogation of Sax (where he spoke exclusively in inhuman tongues) to a related drug raid on a seedy rock club rife with arcane symbols and otherworldly lyrics, they suspect that they are on the trail of something awful... but nothing can prepare them for the creeping insanity and unspeakable terrors they will face in the small harbor town of Innsmouth. NEONOMICON collects Alan Moore's 2010 comic book series for the first time in its entirety - including his original story, THE COURTYARD, which chronicled Aldo Sax's tragic encounter with the (somewhat) mortal agents of the Old Ones.
About the Author
Alan Moore is widely considered to be the greatest comic book writer of all time. With over thirty years dedicated to the medium, his body of work includes Watchmen (the best-selling graphic novel in history), From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Swamp Thing, Tom Strong, Promethea, V for Vendetta, and Lost Girls, just to name a few. Avatar Press has published numerous Moore projects in recent years, including his seminal guide to graphic storytelling, Writing for Comics. Jacen Burrows is truly one of the rising stars in comic book illustration, who has dedicated his talents to Avatar Press projects exclusively throughout the years. His artwork has brought to life the visions of such comics luminaries as Garth Ennis (Chronicles of Wormwood, Crossed), Warren Ellis (Scars), and Alan Moore (The Courtyard, Neonomicon).
