What lurks in The Courtyard? Lovecraftian scholar N.G. Christakos and Antony Johnston tackle the mystery with painstaking research into Alan Moore's masterpiece THE COURTYARD and its roots in the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. This volume reprints Moore's original short story, Johnston's accurately adapted script, pin-up artwork by artist Jacen Burrows unseen in the original graphic novella, hundreds of annotations on all of Moore's Lovecraftian references, and more!
