    I got the wrap covers for all of them. I preferred them due to the Cthulhu mythos rather than the 'regular' covers which had something to do with the story.

    I got the wraps for all except #2. The #4 wrap was my favorite. They're all so pretty. Er, I mean horrifying and unnameable.

    I've not seen #3 yet. My comics subs service has been very sucky recently (yes you Ace comics!). Looks like I'll see 3 &4 together sometime soon?

    I got the wraps for all... and the Auxiliary cover for #1 which is by far my favorite of them all, just for the creeptacular throwbackness of it all.

    great run, happy with it. the end was somehow satisfying and disappointing at the same time. I need to re-read in it's entirety to fully digest, I think...

    oh crap. just googled and discovered there's auxiliaries for all 4.

    I've got to say, for all the horrible rape and everything that went on in that book, the part that bothered me the most was the one guy, upon hearing of the connection, asking about 'L.P. Hovercraft'. What is he, my dad?

    Also, that cover of the giant spider covered in spiders.

    Now the last issue is out, time to revive this thread?

    Avoiding heavy spoilers for the mo'... but I will say the last issue ties up more or less how I expected it to - hints about the nature of the ending have been there since the first page - but much remains only hinted at. There's an interesting parallel with The Invisibles...

    ...regarding the true perception of time and how humans look from that perspective - there's no real difference between the higher-time of the last parts of Invisibles & Moore's conception of the Plain of Leng.


    Odd bit for me - the city domes are still unexplained.

    The invisibles also heavily borrowed from the Cluthulu mythos and satirises the British royalty as being monstrosities from beyond the pale. Though I don't remember any direct references to the two different perceptions of time from Lovecrafts work I have seen it in a load of occult stuff which both GMo and Moore display familiarity with.

    I really enjoyed this comic and how - as with many of Alan Moore's titles - there was a lot of stuff going on under the surface and Moore playing clever bugger with the comic book format (the talking mural scene, for example, or using how lisping characters are portrayed in comics to conceal the fact the villain wasn't always lisping). Plus there was a giant penis-shaped monster to make sure you got your money's worth.
