    There's only one truly shocking rape scene. After that there's occasional nudity but if you can handle an Old One getting his monster wiener jerked off by a human female, you'll do all right.

    This is it in a nutshell. Moore's work on these is largely erotic and unsettling but it's usually in service to the narrative he's trying to tell.

    ...to paraphrase Bono, the Old Ones I believe in aren't looking for handjobs, mister. This idea just strikes me as hopelessly silly and juvenile. If someone can tell me that it's not, well...

    This monster is being held prisoner as both a subject and an object of worship to a small cult. He's pretty feeble too. Instead of getting raped over and over, the woman decides to use her hand. She also gets to better understand him. Maybe it's Stockholm syndrome, I'm not sure. I haven't read the book since it came out. Once the monster realizes she's pregnant, he sets her free. And this way we bid adieu to humanity because she's carrying a god in her belly.

    So, unless the book is meant to be humorous or juvenile, Moore simply isn't the type to waste a single word or go for a cheap thrill. His books can be shocking, and heck, even traumatizing, but he's not the type to just fill space with nudity for nudity's sake.

    This is an interesting read: https://factsprovidence.wordpress.co...nd-neonomicon/

    Not more than I already have, haha. It addresses some of Moore's other works too.

    What was it that you disliked about V for Vendetta?

    Also, have you read Watchmen? That's seminal graphic novel reading.

    WeDealInLead-

    I should have asked: does Providence have the same kind of (sexual) thing going on? Since Providence is my main objective here, if that is free of 8th grade erotica, I could tolerate the others in order to get to that.

    I read a sample of what I believe was the very opening of the story, and the dialogue felt ruinously weak to me. I may someday try it out of curiosity though.

    I'll check tomorrow and let you know. I read these as they were coming out as monthly issues so it's been a while. I remember something but not even close to Neonomicon.

    OK, I checked the first hardcover and can confirm there's indeed nudity. However, it's only a few panels and IMO, it's in service of story.

    The rest of my singles are in storage so I can't either confirm or deny. Providence is definitely a book for adults but it's tasteful and most importantly, the story is incredible. It's demanding and rewarding.

    Re-reading Grant Morrison's run on Superman Action Comics. I don't go for capes and tights but I'll read anything this man writes.

    To that point, I'm reading Nameless by Morrison. This guy's imagination is such a mind fuck, I love it.

    Didn't start it yet. But I do believe it's next in line for my comic-reading.

    I recently re-read Final Crisis. Morrison's DC work is weirder than 99% of creator owned books by others on Avatar, Image etc.

    I'm reading Brubaker's Velvet, and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Both are very good.
