They think they’ve seen the worst monsters in America, but as they pull up to the maximum security asylum where one Aldo Sax speaks in strange tongues, Agents Brears and Lamper may be beginning to suspect that they’re about to see something so much worse. But they cannot begin to imagine the creeping insanity that has already begun to pull them under…. Alan Moore’s Neonomicon #1 is available with a Regular and Wraparound covers by Jacen Burrows, a special rare Book of the Dead retailer incentive and an ultra-scarce retailer incentive Remarqued edition with an original sketch by Burrows!”
