    And so Alan Moore’s meandering and flummoxing mash note to HP Lovecraft, Providence, comes to an awkward, unsatisfying and confusing end in Act Three. Watch in dismay as Robert Black continues to tediously research his book on New England folklore until he doesn’t and then the world sort of ends! Oh my god, what a load of pretentious bollocks! I really don’t understand the love for this series. But then I’m not an Alan Moore fanboy so perhaps therein lies the problem! There’s barely an [...]

    A masterpiece. And I mean the whole series, now completed, with a soul-crushing finish.Providence is a 12 issue comics series, now being compiled into three hardcover books, and I expect eventually into one hardcover volume. Last year I said that the first book (first four issues) was the best comic I had read of 2016, and I am certain now that the entire series is among the best comics of 2017. Do I say this all the time? Nope. I have said something similar thus far twice previously this year, [...]

    The thing is, I feel like that I don't deserve to review this high-caliber literary piece. Alan Moore has once again truly crafted a haunting and genuinely good story in graphic medium. Providence may not be a comics for all readers, but reading this from start to end is definitely an experience which is both grotesquely unique and horrifyingly beautiful.Providence Act 3 concludes Robert Black's excursion in search of the occult and mystical, in the end discovering way, way more than what he cou [...]

    Verbose, insane, disturbing.Damn you, Alan Moore! Some parts of this shall remain with me forever, in my dreams and nightmares.This is just the Watchmen of all horror graphic novels, Jacen Barrows is Steve Dillon reborn and that ending "In the Mouth of Madness" style was just a blast lefting me speechless.An hell of a ride and now I really have to re-read all 3 volumes together with Neonomicon as soon as possible.A must read for all fans of H. P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos.A masterpiece.

    Providence is definitely a beautiful piece of work, it is strikingly detailed and I'm sure makes perfect sense in insane universe of Cthulhu Mythos reimagined by Moore and Burrows. It also brilliantly works as an illustrated guidebook for the literary New England and it has the cutest and really precise depiction H.P.Lovecraft himself.But lord is it wordy and dreary! What we get basically is the pictorial summary of Lovecraft's essential works merged with the closure for Neonomicon comic in the [...]

    I liked the final act, but probably not as much as I should have. I know it ties into The Courtyard and Neomomicon, but really it just got so weird and far out I got a little lost. The world is thrust into a Lovecraftian apocalypse when all manner of creatures and elder gods show up in modern times. This volume does leap ahead from 1919 to now, and I think something was lost in the fast jump cut. Overall not bad, I suppose this was meant to be one of those dark endings you sometimes see in horro [...]

    A magnificent work of recursive horror, examining the Cthulhu mythos as massive a condition, as any religion. It is also very entertaining as a work of fiction, alone

    Amazing! I really didn't know how they'd make it to portray the unspeakable horrors of Lovecraft in the page--I seem to remember HPL often describing things as "indescribable", a nice cop-out that doesn't work on comic books--and it didn't disappoint at all. The first two issues escalate the terror in the same way the previous ones have done--here, Robert's common book is key, more meta than ever. I truly loved this thorough the series, how Robert Black describes the workings of a horror story w [...]

    Well this was a roller coaster ride. I rather liked this series overall. I'm not sure it's Moore's best, but it certainly makes my top 5. The last two issues get really weird. I liked Issue 11, but I can see some getting lost if they don't get the references. William S. Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, and Jorge Luis Borges all make small appearances for a reason. The last issue left me a little clueless. I think I have to read Moore's original Lovecraftian comic book now to fully get this series. I [...]

    Well, Alan Moore’s Lovecraft epic did improve. But I’m still unconvinced it needed 12 lengthy issues. There really was an awful lot of the protagonist, who to me was always Nice Lovecraft*, wandering around New England getting into vaguely Cthulhoid scrapes he didn’t entirely grasp. A friend pointed out the comic overtones to much of it, and yes, at times it could get a bit ‘Oh no! Nyarlathotep is coming round for tea and a Deep One’s just eaten my trousers!’…but while Jacen Burrow [...]

    Goddamn. This might be Alan Moore's greatest work, which is saying something from the author of From Hell, Killing Joke, League of Extraordinary Gentleman, and Watchmen. Especially considering the Neonomicon.I only tolerated Neonomicon because I already had Providence 1 & 2 volumes under my belt, but even so, you see why Grant Morrison said: “We know Alan Moore isn’t a misogynist but fuck, he’s obsessed with rape.”--because there is a LOT of rape in Neonomicon, like a third of the bo [...]

    For the most part, Providence Act 3 is a vastly superior book to its predecessor. Yes, we continue to get the Lovecraftian homages, here "From Beyond" (#9) and "The Whisperer in Darkness" (#10). But Moore finally goes beyond that, creating some interesting narratives of the sort that we've been waiting two books for.First, we get the introduction of Lovecraft as a character, which brings in interesting metatextuality, both in how Lovecraft got the ideas for his stories and for the part he places [...]

    Interesting, but not nearly as good as it should have been. Moore's pastiche of Lovecraftian references doesn't really add up to much, ultimately. Where volumes like The Courtyard and Neonomicon were actually weird and otherworldly and scary, this one just sort of peters out. Kind of a 'meh conclusion to the ultimate apocalypse.

    Ich musste den dritten Teil der Providence Reihe zu Ende lesen an einem Stück. Alan Moore ist einfach fantastisch, intelligent schreibend. Providence macht sehr viel Lust und steigert das Verlangen jetzt H.P. Lovecraft in die Hand zu nehmen.

    Alan Moore, Jacen Burrows and HP Lovecraft.Bliss. Aaaarghhh!!!!!

    Things wrap up in this one and I wish it was more satisfying. It leads into both THE COURTYARD and NEONOMICON, and I wish I had read those more recently to better appreciate this. That said, it's still good stuff, it just didn't wow me as much as I hoped. Could be high expectations. It did convince me that I really have to dive into HP Lovecraft and read the work that's inspired all this stuff.

    I find myself still a bit haunted by the finale to Alan Moore's spectacular trilogy, "Providence". In this third part we get plunged not only back into the chaos of our protagonist's head, we get slammed down into the fantasy lands dreamed up by HP Lovecraft after taking what, in retrospect, was a leisurely stroll, with some ass-fucking detours, through Providence, talking amiably with our deluded, bigoted, eccentric writer of great horror tales, Howard Lovecraft in all his very-grey flesh. The [...]

    A truly incredible and thought-provoking read. Docked it a star because the climax ispuzzling structure, as befits a reconfiguring of the Lovecraft mythos, butill. Mind-bending, twisting, and widening.And for all its focus on mystery and horror, this is, as so often is the case with Alan Moore, a story about story. About the way words are a kind of magic that reshapes the world. It's not a new notion, but Moore's take is lessuchy-feely than the usual treatment. If words can change the world for [...]

    The lies unravel, the stars align - Alan Moore's Providence comes to an end.I'm not sure how to think of this yet - it's a very intertextual book, and I'm missing one of the main texts (The Courtyard) that apparently fits in with the rest of the work. I'm lost on more than a few references. But even without that, it was affecting. I don't want to give too much away, so I hardly know what else to say about it.

    Ehkäpä tämä ei sittenkään ole Alan Mooren uusi suuri mestariteos, joka mullistaa sarjakuvailmaisun jälleen kerran. Mutta aivan veikeä tarina kuitenkin. Moore varioi Lovecraftin hahmoja kuin jazz-muusikko. Enimmäkseen lukija hihittelee, ja pitää pisteenlaskua siitä, kuinka monta hahmoa hän tunnistaa salanimien takaa. Mutta välillä tarina menee aika julmaksi, ja nauru tarttuu kurkkuun. Jostain muistan lukeneeni, että Moore luki hyllyllisen Lovecraft-kirjallisuustutkimusta tätä va [...]

    Look. I really wanted to like this. I dig Moore, and I (reservedly) dig Lovecraft, so I thought it'd be a perfect match!Unfortunately, Providence has taken on board Lovecraft's habit of hand-waving and letting the narrative kind of ooze to a close. Madness? Destruction? Whatever. *waves tentacle*Part of the the problem is that Providence carries on from two earlier Burrows/Moore collaborations set in a Lovecraftian universe. While this volume does pull a lot of threads together - most remarkably [...]

    Alan Moore's writing, both in terms of graphic novels and prose works, is of a consistently high standard - so much so that you might find yourself taking his genius for granted. In fact, it's such a high bar that Moore has set for himself with his previous offerings, which include titles known far beyond the comic book reader's world (V for Vendetta, From Hell, Watchment, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Batman - The Killing Joke, etc), that it's hard to imagine how he could possibly cont [...]

    Although the initial first Act of Providence inspired an avid fondness for the premise; H. P. Lovecraft's mythology being unwittingly exhumed by a closeted homosexual, investigative journalist seeking the underground culture of America was thrilling. Although the epistolary format was a bit tedious with Robert Black's journal entries in his Common Book, the clever historical references and the growing sense of dread derived from dramatic irony was quite compelling enough for me to power through [...]

    Moore recuperates the problems of the earlier issues in this final, clever, Act. The problems in the earlier issues were narrative ones -- and it's pretty instructive, from a writing point of vier. The journalist Black's desire to write a history of New England occult culture lacks stakes. That is, there's nothing compelling -- either storywise or on a personal lever -- driving Black towards his goal. So in earlier volumes theres a meandering quality to the issues, which echoes some of Lovercraf [...]

    "If I'm reading this right, our dreams and our world are two extremes of a bi-polar reality, that can flip from one state to the other. It shifted in our favour aeons ago, commencing human history. Ever since, interests from the displaced reality have tried to shift it back.""S-So our dreams are a vanquished country, and it's trying to overthrow us?"So, I didn't realize that Providence was a sequel prequel to Neonomicon , instead of just a prequel. This book makes no sense whatsoever without the [...]

    The first ten and a half chapters in Providence Act 3 are astounding. The furthering of the influences of Lovecraft and weird New England blend fantastically with exploration of the human condition. The way the journalistic Commonplace Book sections insightfully complement the panels and dialogue is captivatingly immersive, much like Act 1 and Act 2. Unfortunately, the final chapter and a half left me thoroughly disappointed. The flash-forward from 1919 to a modern FBI investigation is messily e [...]

    Robert Black's madness is complete as Alan Moore's Providence comes to an end. It's a historical and literary look at Lovecraft's entire bibliography and Moore doesn't spare any of the uncomfortable details. The ending gets a lot of flack and I can see why. It's really an ending to Moore's earlier work, Neonomicon. I can see why this would frustrate people. Additionally, it ends on a bittersweet note of hopeful hopelessness. The characters choose to live in a new world rather than commit suicide [...]

    So it goes with Alan Moore so often, things just went completely and totally pear-shaped in the final act of Providence. This is actually well in line with the story being told, and the route this entire thing heads is just weird and unsettling, as one should expect from a Lovecraftian tale. The choices made here, much like with Neonomicon, can be debated, but I felt like this was a solid end to a story that had a difficult start to begin with. Overall, can I recommend this? For Lovecraft hardco [...]

    An excellent, but weirdly meta ending (S.T. Joshi shows up towards the end to provide commentary!). If I had not spent the past year reading and researching weird fiction, I'm not sure it would have been comprehensible. You have to have read most of Lovecraft, Machen, Poe, Borges, Robert Chambers, Robert E. Howard, Donald Wandrei, William S. Burroughs, Frank Belknap Long, August Derleth as well as the associated critical texts and biographical material -not to mention Moore's Neonomicon and The [...]

    Damn that was weird. Chapter 11 (the 3rd chapter in this volume) was a series of non-contiguous scenes, many with no obvious connection to the preceding 10 chapters. After a bit of Googling and -ing I believe that the panels reference Lovecraft stories or other authors connected to Lovecraftian work. Because I have very limited knowledge of all this stuff chapter 11 was a frustrating confusion for me. The final chapter, number 12, settled into a comprehensible narrative, now with mostly new char [...]
