Alan Moore will tell H.P. Lovecraft's origin story in new comic called Providence
Comic book maestro Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta, etc.) is returning to the Lovecraftian setting of his earlier works The Courtyard and Neonomicon with a new 10-part series called Providence. According to Bleeding Cool "it will be set in 1919 and star the author HP Lovecraft. Exploring scenarios that caused the man to be the writer we are more familiar with, as well as featuring a red headed policeman who is both a closet homosexual and closet Jewish."
Many fans thought that the twist-ish ending of Neonomicon was a set up for a sequel, so I guess they were right. Although Moore claims he's only writing the comic in order to pay his tax bill.
