Providence Delivers Chilling Visions

Providence01_regularFans who have been watching for Alan Moore’s much anticipated return to Lovecraftian horror since the end of Neonomicon have been rewarded with a new series that is delivering a terrifying slow decent into madness for its characters.  This is possibly Moore’s most realized vision in Providence02-regcomics to date.  He literally has controlled ever word, every image, and every nuance of the books.  Now fans are devouring the content and trying to decipher clues in the scenes and dialogue of the series.  There are entire groups of linguists that are posting their observations and opinions on where the mystery is going.

Providence03-regProvidence #1 and #2 are currently available at your local comic shops and available for reorder from the distributor.  The third issue of Providence will be out in stores on 8/12.

God is Dead Delivers Mythology Reinvented

GodisDead39_RegAuthor Mike Costa has done an amazing job of taking dusty tomes of mythology and turning them into a vital and horrifying narration in the pages of God is Dead.  Fans have enjoyed a thrill ride of action and consequence that has seen the very Earth and all of creation destroyed by the machinations of Satan.  And now, though the world is GodisDead39-Enchantingreborn without gods, the separation that has kept mortal and divine apart is disintegrating.

Once more the influence of the gods is finding its way to the mortal plane and turning a population without imagination into groveling slaves.  The world of man has no place for physical GodisDead39-Iconicmanifestations of the divine.  And now…without visionaries and mortals with the ability to fight these monsters, the gods are positioned to once more run GodisDead39-EndofDaysroughshod over a helpless population.

If you have any interest in mythology or original storytelling, make sure you try God is Dead at your local comic book shop.  The series is unlike anything else being published and trade paperback editions are available from the first chapters of the ongoing saga.
