Neonomicon is starting to make sense

I've complained before about Rick Johnston's hyping the shock value aspect of Alan Moore's Neonomicon on his blog, Bleeding Cool, which I find puerile and distracting. Thankfully, though, he's also interested in some of the more insightful interpretations of the comic.

(Spoiler warning: Don't click the next link if you haven't already read issues 1-3 of Neonomicon.)

In this post, he quotes from several contributors on his message board who are not only deciphering some of the more difficult language in the comic but also starting to put the pieces of the puzzle together, illustrated with some pretty convincing evidence going all the way back to the very first page of the first issue.

In retrospect, it's all so obvious I can't believe I missed it. Looking forward to the final issue!
