    • a sociopathic FBI profiler finds a dark path and takes it some time later, two agents follow in his footsteps murder, rape, rage, despair, racism, homophobia, a swinger party, a cult, hallucinatory freak outs, nightmarish dreamscapes, Deep Ones, Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, H.P Lovecraft, and gruesome bloody slaughter are all delivered in a timely fashion.celebrated genius Alan Moore s graphic novel was, per the author s own admission, done for a paycheck and so that s that it was also removed from a [...]

    • The Courtyard When federal agent Aldo Sax goes deep undercover to find a mysterious drug called Aklo, he gets snared in net of Lovecraftian craziness with Johnny Carcosa at the center.Aside from being peppered with racial slurs, I thought this was a pretty good tale Aldo Sax encounters cosmic horrors and flips his shit Moore seeded the text with plenty of Lovecraftian references, like The Shadow over Innsmouth, The Horror at Red Hook, Zothique actually a Clark Ashton Smith , and Randolph Carter [...]

    • Wow, this is a book about a woman who struggles with sex addiction being locked in a room and sexually assaulted by a monster over the course of a week, which solves all her problems If that sounds nice to you, you do not sound nice to me I think mostly I m pissed because this is on so many best horror comics lists I ve read, and not a single one of them mentions the fact that it s just about a woman being raped by a monster For a week Which is presented as not even a big deal to her She s an FB [...]

    • Alan Moore only him This TPB edition collects Neonomicon 1 4, but also includes The Courtyard 1 2, which both are parts of the same story.Creative Team Writer Alan MooreIllustrator Jacen BurrowsTHE EGG OR THE CHICKEN Maybe some of you remember by review about Providence, if not, it s relevant to say that the stories collected here, The Courtyard and Neonomicon are linked to Providence, which it serves as prequel AND sequel to the first two mentioned stories.So, what to read first I have to admit [...]

    • Really like 2.5 stars, but we ll round up because Alan Moore is generally, if nothing else, exceedingly interesting If you re into graphic monster human sex so than I am, anyway and H.P Lovecraft, you may dig this Otherwise, you probably want to read pretty much anything else Moore has written instead Including his grocery list.

    • Warning to my friends reading this review I did like this as I thought it was well executed, but this is an ultra graphic H.P Lovecraft horror story with plenty here to offend and frighten and disturb everyone so I can t imagine many people reading this and actually enjoying I did, actually, which probably says something about me, so watch out I read this because I am making it through the Alan Moore corpus, slowly, dabbling in it, at least, and wanted to see what he does with Real Scary and Gra [...]

    • Neonomicon is the sequel to Antony Johnston and Jacen Burrows graphic adaptation of Alan Moore s The Courtyard, a short story by Moore from the 90s If you missed it, don t worry because The Courtyard is included in this book This time around Burrows returns with Moore scripting the comic Aldo Sax, the main character of The Courtyard, is in an insane asylum speaking Lovecraftian gibberish after he was arrested for murdering his neighbour Two FBI agents, Gordon Lamper and Merril Brears, are assign [...]

    • What starts out as an interesting supernatural procedural in a world where Lovecraft s mythos is real is all but undone by Moore s nearly adolescent preoccupation with sex It wouldn t be an issue if the sex were portrayed as healthy and positive I could get behind that but here the sex is entirely non consensual A female character is raped during an orgy of cultists and then raped again, repeatedly, by an inhuman monster with an insatiable sexual appetite But it s okay, Moore assures us, because [...]

    • This was my first graphic novel and it was an excellent one to start with The illustrations were absolutely stunning and the story itself was incredibly weird and at times disturbing, but in a good way I felt like I was a part of the story, puzzling it out along with the characters I really couldn t have enjoyed this graphic novel , it was strange and captivating and has started what I m sure will become an obsession with graphic novels

    • Update This is basically a better version of the story youtube watch v 6QFwo5Now, the idea of Alan Moore writing a Lovecraft comic sounds amazing , doesn t it D At the mention of such a concept, visions of a Lovecraft tale on the scale of Watchmen or From Hell or V for Vendetta fill one s mind And GODDAMN if that wouldn t be amazing.Yeeeeeahat s not what we get here At four issues, Neonomicon is quite brief, and given its quality, that might be a good thing Issue 1 is tremendously awful it s lit [...]

    • I ll be honest, the only reason I picked this up to read is on principle My local public library director pulled this from the shelves after a parental complaint, not even following the policies the library has for contested items It was properly shelved with other graphic novels and not in the childrens section, but a parent didn t like that her daughter had gotten her hands on something with this content The graphic novel remains censored at that library a year later, but the academic library [...]

    • This book is a hard one to review I think Alan Moore is a brilliant writer and his work in the comic industry is well deserved of praise V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Saga of the Swamp Thing and critical acclaim But the two interconnected stories here, The Courtyard and Neonomicon show Alan at his good and his bad and also shows off a rather disturbing trend in his work.The Courtyard is the best story of the two, throwing the Lovecraftian Mythos into the seedy world of back street drug dealings, Lov [...]

    • Okay, here we go if you love Lovecraft like I do, and you are a fan of Alan Moore, like I am, then stay as far away from Neonomicon as is humanly possible, because it s an insult to both Moore has described the book as the most unpleasant thing I ve ever written and on those terms at least, it lives up to its premise A sequel to his geniunely chilling and enjoyable short story The Courtyard, inspired by a poem in Lovecraft s Fungi From Yuggoth cycle, Neonomicon takes the worst excesses of someth [...]

    • Visually explicit and disturbing, I bought this solely because it has Alan Moore as the author What I got is than what I have asked for Jacen Burrows is indeed a talented artist He is able to keep the intensity of the scenes, be it the mystery, the sensuality and the gore Oh the gore I wasn t ready for it, yet loved every bit of flesh of detail Neonomicon is a graphic material which is definitely not for children If you are of the conservative type or easily grossed out with sick mature themes [...]

    • PROS Moore adds interesting symbolism to the Cthulhu Mythos He takes some of the literal aspects that Lovecraft gave us and made it metaphorical The artwork is nicely detailedNS A woman gets raped and sexually assaulted by a fish monster and some cultists for many weeks and it solves all her problems Was pretty immature and possessed a lurid fascination with freakish sex.This book wasn t really my cup of tea.

    • Demasiado bizarro para mi gusto, pero de todas maneras lo lei todo.Esperaba mas del se or Moore Fue bastante simple y grotesco.

    • Neonomicon is a difficult graphic novel to review.To begin with, I think the term graphic is than appropriate here Although I do not believe in censorship, I do think this particular piece should carry a warning on its cover This is most definitely NOT for children of even younger or less mature adolescents The opening few pages carry some pretty graphic and gory artwork However, this isn t really the questionable material There is a significantly long orgy screen, which includes homo and heter [...]

    • Although I am not a big Alan Moore fan, I was beguiled into giving Neonomicon a try by its fabulous premise a modern day, Lovecraftian tale of mystery and madness Moore apparently believes that the best way to build upon Lovecraft s legacy is to add long episodes of truly horrific sadism and sexual violence In general, I m deeply put off by Moore s fascination with such material, and his tendency to dwell at length on wicked characters doing really monstrous things I do not object to such portra [...]

    • It pains me to say this but this book is not very good I love Lovecraft, and most of Alan Moore s work, but this is mediocre at best, childish and revolting at its worst.It s got some overall ideas that are clever, but once the FBI agent is shot, everything becomes way too silly The way the female agent acted and talked during the horrifying acts she was subjected to was goofy enough to take me totally out of it Being a sex addict does not suffice to explain that kind of a reaction Unfortunately [...]

    • Warning 1 Read this with an empty stomach.Warning 2 Burn it after reading before anybody sees this at your house.Warning 3 Do not read this before going to sleep Even if you don t get nightmares, you will stay wake for quite some time.Warning 4 If you get disgusted within the first two chapters, do not proceed for your own good.Alan Moore s take on H P Lovecraft s horrors Let that sentence simmer down first Done Neonomicon drug FBI sex supernatural elements cults sex monsters sex mindf k horrorR [...]

    • Edit taken down a star to 2 stars On reflection, it s just too rapey to be good I liked all the stuff that wasn t rapey or crazily sexually deviant Not really sure how to rate this It was seriously fucked up Like Probably one of the most fucked up stories I ve read Complete with pictures But the artwork was good.

    • Reads like a course overview for a college class dedicated to the works of H.P Lovecraft an author whose work I increasingly have little interest in ever exploring stuffed into the trappings of an exploitation horror flick Recommended to readers who like their comics bookish with plenty of fishy orgies Moore s weird sense of humor downplays some of the awfulness of the several rape scenes, but this is definitely not a comic for the easily offended Not one of Moore s best efforts, but a breezy wa [...]

    • Alan Moore pays tribute to H.P Lovecraft Really, what do you need to know Anyone familiar with Moore s work has already stopped reading and is rushing to the nearest bookshop or library to read this themselves The rest of you would be advised to do likewise Still reading Very well So the FBI is investigating a series of murders Although they all show similar characteristics, they were definitely committed by different, unrelated people The attempts to find a connection lead them to an undergrou [...]

    • Read this because the last issues of Providence really confused me Now having read Lovecraft stories and reading this volume, I understand he plot better They should put this all together in one big book sometime, but I recommended getting all 4 books to understand the full story I think Providence was better though.

    • some great splash but otherwise ordinary images, representational, competent, dialog overwritten trying for hp lovecraft, but it is the updated most gory rather than cosmic horror drugs magic, rape, murder, sacrifice, mutilation many references to the man himself and his work but just not quite as effective and i guess the weird sex is moore and never hp

    • Ah, you want dark this is dark Well within the spirit of the Lovecraftian tradition and an added dash of American FBI TV drama with serial killer characteristics Alan Moore even gets in a bit of Kenneth Grant on the side.However, since many of you in America have of a problem with sex than gory violence, be warned this is a work of sexual horror with explicit scenes of truly unpleasant sexual violence.The scene of reptilian jissum flying through a wide arc as the FBI heroine jerks off the monst [...]
