    Surprisingly, I liked the non Alan Moore part (Yuggoth Creatures) much more. At least they really referenced Lovecraft. I might even go far and say that Alan Moore's Providence might be slightly inspired by Yuggoth Creatures! Surprisingly, I liked the non Alan Moore part (Yuggoth Creatures) much more.

    I do wish Nightjar had continued on as it promised it would. But that's fine, as I liked all the stories to some extent. Leviticus was probably my favourite: Hunt Emerson's art is always great.

    This was a really interesting collection of Alan Moore's lesser-known work and some interviews. I usually think he's a bit hit and miss, though obviously a mad genius, and that's true here I think. Some of the stories didn't work for me. I didn't get "Recognition" until I read Moore's explanation for example. But others, like "I Keep Coming Back" and "Nightjar" were excellent. I'm very glad to have this book. I give it 4 stars just for the interview where Moore discusses magic and art. Brilliant This was a really interesting collection of Alan Moore's lesser-known work and some interviews.

    Ylivoimaisesti parasta tässä kokoelmassa oli Cthulhu-aiheiset pätkät, mutta muualtakin löytyi mielenkiintoisia sarjoja. Myös haastattelut olivat laatukamaa, vaikka kuva Mooresta muodoistuikin melko erikoiseksi.

    A jumbled collection of some rare Moore shorts and a cycle of Lovecraftian stories, only for completists. There are a few very solid comics here (Cold Snap is a fun, lovely reminder of his AD 2000 work) but the Yuggoth material is Lovecraftian in every sense of the word: enchanting and poetic at a glance, but ultimately boring and arbitrary. Moore has been criticized for taking the Lovecraft mythos and reworking it into standalone tales that reinterpret its mythology.

That usually makes for far more entertaining and ultimately meaningful stuff than the honest-to-god tales of madness here, which just sort of roll on and on in Moore's always-commanding language, but without really arriving anywhere at all.

    As others have mentioned, don't read this book if you're looking for more Moore stuff that fits into the Cthulhu Mythos... there are a few pieces that focus on Lovecraft, but for the most part, it's just a collection of short pieces by Moore. My favorites were Recognition (about Lovecraft's father), Leviticus 20, The Nativity on Ice, and I Keep Coming Back, Moore's coda to the absolutely amazing From Hell.

I can't imagine enjoying I Keep Coming Back, though, if I hadn't read From Hell and spent some time myself in the Ten Bells and the East End of London... it seems to be a bit out-of-context otherwise. It's Alan Moore, so of course it's great. But it's more about him than it is about Lovecraft.

    This is a pretty decent collection of Moore’s short works. I don’t quite understand the inclusion of Yuggoth Creatures and the supplementary material pertaining to it, as it was not written by Moore (decent Lovecraftian story, though); perhaps more interviews or critical essays would have filled the space better.

    Definitely the most mediocre of Moore's comic books. Perhaps he only works in great sprawling dramas. The interviews and essays in the middle were interesting though. For true Moore fans, that may be worth the price of admission. Definitely the most mediocre of Moore's comic books. Perhaps he only works in great sprawling dramas.

    Paraphernalia di brevi storie di argomento Lovecraftiano di Alan Moore. Decisamente una raccolta eterogenea e grottesca, dove l'autodefinitosi "Mago" fornisce la sua visione di HPL e della sua Yog-Sototheria. Ovviamente non è una versione molto fedele all'originale, troppo ci viene mostrato di ciò che dovrebbe essere inconoscibile, e questo è un difetto da imputarsi direttamente a lui.

    A fantastic resource for those Alan Moore fans and comics historians. This collection offers great insight into the watershed moment of early Moore and his impact on comics and popular culture. Highlights are the never-published-before NIGHTJAR (oh, to have this as a completed story—my wish!) and letters Moore wrote to collaborators and they about Moore. A must-read for fans of Moore, 80s-90s comic history, and Lovecraft. Wow!

    Don't let the title fool you - Most of the content in this book isn't actually by Alan Moore. The Moore stuff is all pretty good and I enjoyed the interviews and essays more than I thought I would, but this book really only has value to me as a Moore completist and won't be high on my re-read list.

    The Alan Moore stuff ranges from somewhat dull to kind of interesting. The non-Moore stuff is pretty much abysmal - and takes up more than half the book. Which means that I wanted to throw it across the room quite a fair bit.

    There are some awesome Alan Moore rarities here, some you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Faves include "Me and Dorothy Parker," "Leviticus," and the fabulously funny "Itchy Peterson." This is neither a comprehensive collection of Moore's Lovecraftian work, or his short stories, and there's an odd mix of comics, essays, scripts and interviews, but it's all worth reading. Oddly, half the book is by Antony Johnson, not Moore, and while it's Lovecraftian, it has nothing to do with Moore's w There are some awesome Alan Moore rarities here, some you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.

I think it deserved its own book and shouldn't have been included in this one.

    The title is a little misleading. While the stories by Moore are pretty good, they have very little to do with the Cthulhu mythos. The tales by Antony Johnson, however, are a must read for any Lovecraft fan. All of the tales by Johnson are magnificently illustrated, and breathe new life into the fabled creatures and entities made famous by H.P. Lovecraft.

    Basic Premise: Cthulhu mythos comic books. Weird, disturbing, and generally gross. Loved it!

    Neat, but it felt unfinished. Like a bunch of half-realized ideas, rather than an anthology of stories.
