Ah, I posted too quick.
Your comments about The Courtyard and Neonomicon…
It’s funnny, I felt similar after I read both of these.
This is why it annoys me when they are dismissed as a pay check book for Moore (especially as I don’t think Avatar is where you go if you want a pay check, not when you are the most worshipped comic book writer of all time and could work literally anywhere you wanted.
Both of these books gripped me and I felt incredibly ‘off’ after having read them. Like really strange and affected. I know everyone talks about the shagging scene, but for me there were a lot of really bizarre, unsettling subtle moments, I felt like I was part of the story in a way.
It looks like you enjoyed them, which I’m glad of.
I do think it’s a rather unique experience and an extremely underrated, or less talked about one at that.
