The works of H.P. Lovecraft has long been one of Alan Moore's main sources of inspiration. Whether it's featuring some of the Elder Gods mythos in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen or borrowing the writer's fish people for his epic tale of fish and rape, Neonomicon, or his beard, which was inspired by the tentacled chin of Cthulhu himself, Moore has made it clear that he's a fan of one of the founders of modern weird horror.
Now, Moore is writing a new ten-part miniseries starring Lovecraft himself, titled Providence. The book, which Moore has described as a way to pay his tax bill, will examine how Lovecraft became driven to create the Cthulhu mythos and his other works. It will also explore Lovecraft's Nazi sympathies and his anti-Semitic views.
