Alan Moore’s The Courtyard

Alan Moore’s haunting masterpiece,The Courtyard, sees Moore, teams up with brilliant artist Jacen Burrows, to unleash this timeless tale of Lovecraftian psychological horror. FBI man Aldo Sax has an amazing service record with the FBI. His legendary skills at piecing together the most baffling of cases has gotten him assigned to what may be his most confusing case yet.

Several murders – no, more like lethal dismemberments – from the most unlikely of suspects just don’t add up. And what few leads there are, all point to Club Zothique, a nightclub in Red Hook, Brooklyn, where he hears of a psychoactive drug called Aklo, peddled by a mysterious veiled man named Johnny Carcosa.

Sax sets up a meet with Carcosa at the dealer’s apartment building, where he is given a hallucinogenic white powder as a prelude to the Aklo. Carcosa speaks an unknown language to Sax, who experiences visions of spectral planes and hideous primordial creatures, while understanding the truth that Aklo is not a drug, but the language Carcosa spoke to him. The visions, given to him by Aklo, drive Sax to murder his neighbor using the same modus operandi as the killers he was investigating!

This special collected edition of the series features an introduction by Garth Ennis!
