Wednesday Comics on Thursday... on Friday Again - March 25, 2011

Once again I'm posting about comics on Friday.

I completely love the covers for Neonomicon #4 from Avatar Press. It's written by Alan Moore with art by Jacen Burrows.

Auxiliary Cover

Wraparound Cover

Book of the Dead Cover
The cataclysmic final issue of the all-new, all Alan Moore, horror series spoken of only in hushed whispers for years is finally here! NEONOMICON, the sequel to THE COURTYARD Graphic Novel, is slithering its way onto shelves to take its place as a Great Old One of comics terror! Illustrated by Moore's favorite demented artist, Jacen Burrows, NEONOMICON pulls no punches as every full-colored page is covered in nightmares brought to gruesome life! Agent Brears has, quite literally, been to hell and back. Hell just happens to look like a network of tunnels beneath an esoteric little bookstore in Salem, Mass. But now that Brears has walked out of hell, she can see things that most people can't. Things that would drive most people mad. But as NEONOMICON draws to a close, Brears has one more thing she wants to show you... Alan Moore’s Neonomicon #4 is available with a Regular and Wraparound covers by Jacen Burrows and a special rare Book of the Dead retailer incentive. Comic Cavalcade

I think the Wraparound Cover is exceptional. It has a Creature From the Black Lagoon vibe. It's not the Creature though. It shows Gargouille de la Mer (gargoyle of the sea). Here's a picture of the Creature From the Black Lagoon. You decide.


  1. those covers are fantastic. especially the sepia one.. I may have to check them out.

  2. There is a better full body shot of the creature at IMDB (picture 5 of 37). It's clear that they are different species, although probably distantly related.

    Fantastic artwork.

  3. I love the covers for the entire series.

    There are lots of better pictures of the Creature out there, but I don't take pictures from IMDB. :) I do think they are probably related... if they existed.
