** 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]].

* AffablyEvil: Johnny Carcosa is rather chummy and easygoing for an avatar of Nyarlathotep.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: The climax of Issue 2 hinges on the normally intelligent and savvy Brears and Lamper, while undercover as a Lovecraft-fetish couple, obeying the Dagon cultists' instructions to strip naked, and for Brears to remove her [[BlindWithoutEm contact lenses]], before entering the pool. They even leave their guns behind in the change room, where the suspicious co-chief cultist Joanie discovers them, and promptly shoots Lamper, then holds Brears at gunpoint.

Added DiffLines:

* CrypticConversation: During Brears's drug-induced dream as the creature is raping her, Johnny Carcosa tells her, "What [[SpeechImpediment thith]] ith, ith you're a nun, thee, Asian, merry." Brears doesn't understand this at the time ("I'm not Asian"), but after thinking about it later, she realizes what he'd actually said: [[spoiler:"What this is, is your annunciation, [[ApocalypseMaiden Mary]]."]]


Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: Lamper. In the covers for Issues 1 and 2, and in the promotional teasers for the story (e.g. the summation on the back cover of the trade), he gets equal billing with Brears. Lamper also gets roughly equal time with Brears within the comic--until he's murdered less than halfway through the second issue.

It's quite an atmospheric story, but be warned: there is a lot of very graphically depicted sexual assault and rape.

to:

It's quite an atmospheric story, but be warned: there is a lot In another interview, Moore stated that it was his intention to do the exact opposite of very graphically depicted sexual assault Lovecraft's usual "[[NothingIsScarier fear of the unknown]]" shtick by showing ''everything'' (in the most graphic detail possible) regarding the "nameless rituals" and rape.
"blasphemous rites" that the author only ever alluded to. As such, the comic contains numerous explicit (some might say pornographic) sex scenes, nearly all of which involve inter-species rape.

* NonMaliciousMonster: The Deep One; he takes Agent Brear by force, multiple times, but he doesn't seem to understand he's harming her and he doesn't brutalize her wantonly, to him it's nothing more than mating. Plus, when he understands that she's pregnant, he gently brings her into the water, breaks the gate that confined her with his free hand, helps her escape, and then goes back and proceeds to rip the Dagon cultists apart to prevent them from harming her.
