PROVIDENCE - The Art Book and Complete Slipcase Set

$114,073

Providence is Alan Moore’s quintessential horror series! In it, he weaves and reinvents the works of H.P. Lovecraft through historical events. It is both a sequel and prequel to Neonomicon, and the resulting masterpiece owes a great deal to his artistic partner, Jacen Burrows. Dreadful Beauty: The Art of Providence is a celebration of the amazing work of Burrows. Over 15 years of his works are featured here, all showcasing Burrows' original pencils and inks. Included is a complete cover gallery -- from The Courtyard to Neonomicon to Providence -- as well as choice pages, designs, and lots of unused and never-before-made-public art! For fans of the series, this is a wonderful companion volume showcasing the haunting artwork and painstaking labor that went into bringing it to life. We offer a special hardcover edition for your support that you won't want to miss. But don't just take our word for it -

 "Jacen Burrows, somehow combining immaculate Swiss-watch precision and wrenching human emotion, is a contemporary master of comic-book art with an instantly classical style that looks like it’s surely been around forever; a timeless line that is as distinctive and original as anything the medium has ever produced. And while I am admittedly biased, I believe his astonishing work on Providence to represent a new level of accomplishment in the career of this already stellar artist and craftsman. A unique and genuinely remarkable talent." - Alan Moore 

And what better way to showcase this incredible series than with the Providence Complete Slipcase: A beautiful set of all the related works in hardcover editions in an exclusive slipcase with new art by Burrows. The Slipcase Set includes five volumes: Neonomicon, Providence Act 1, Providence Act 2, Providence Act 3, and Dreadful Beauty: The Art of Providence. This incredible set is limited to just 1000 units and none of the volumes within will have further hardcover editions. This is THE slipcase set for Alan Moore fans!
