Alan Moore’s The Courtyard

More of a graphic short story than a graphic novel, this piece from the comic master has just been republished in full colour for the first time. Originally published in 2005, it follows a top FBI agent as he tries to solve a set of murders, which appear to have been committed by a serial killer. But something doesn’t add up, all the clues seem to lead back to a mysterious courtyard and the prime suspect is an unlikely murderer. Of course, there’s more to it than meets the eye as Moore weaves a tale of unknowable psychological horror in the style of H. P. Lovecraft.
