It's worth noting that the reason for this comic's genesis was [[MoneyDearBoy largely due to some pecuniary issues Moore was having at the time]]. In an interview with ''Wired Magazine'': Moore said "I had a tax bill coming up, and I needed some money quickly. So I happened to be talking to William [A. Christensen] from Creator/AvatarPress, and he suggested that he could provide some if I was up for doing a four-part series, so I did. So although I took it to pay off the tax bill, I'm always going to make sure I try and make it the best possible story I can."

** Partially justified as he is a NonMaliciousMonster who is not really keen on human interactions(since then, all humans he met were eager for sex, so he probably didn't understand consent well), and he actually stops when she asks him.

* MentalTimeTravel: Lovecraft's writings and other CthulhuMythos stories and visions of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s are actually a result of four-dimensional "echoes" of powerful, highly evolved beings from Earth's distant future.

** This is actually played with quite interestingly. In the original story, ''The Courtyard'', it seems like it's just another story in the CthulhuMythos Universe taking place in modern times. It isn't until the second chapter of ''Neonomicon'' that Brears mentioned H.P. Lovecraft. Sax just never made the connection in the earlier story because he'd never heard of him, it having been written right around the time Lovecraft's works were only just starting to begin the huge resurgence in popularity they gained through the Internet.

** What the detectives (and by extension, Moore) seem to think Lovecraft was. They discuss the idea that all of Lovecraft's [[EldritchAbomination horrors]] may simply have come [[FreudWasRight from his own personal revulsion at the very idea of sex]].

** In ''The Courtyard'' he's merely a casual bigot who uses a lot of racial slurs, which seems to be Moore trying to stay true to the tone of actual Lovecraft stories, but he goes whole hog with it once he loses his mind.
