100 Issues Ago

I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old Justice League of America and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?

This was the teaser/taster issue for Neonomicon, the continuation of Alan Moore’s Lovecraftian story The Courtyard. It had about 8 or so pages from the first issue of the mini-series and damn it was good – enough to make me eagerly await the continuation even more than I had been since reading The Courtyard some six or seven years before then.

And what made it even better was the eventual follow up to Neonomicon in the form of Providence.

My views on Moore have changed over the years but his Lovecraftian epic still holds up and is well worth reading even if you’ve never read a single story by Lovecraft.
