"The Courtyard was my attempt to write a story within the mythology of H.P. Lovecraft that did not try to regurgitate Lovecraft's style. It was an attempt to write a Lovecraftian story that was set in what was then the near future rather than in a Lovecraftian Era. As such, I thought it was a very successful story and it has always been a little favorite of mine in terms of my horror output."
--Alan Moore,

16 pages of 48 (Two issues; 8 each of 24). Trigger warning for gore.

"It’s a repurposing of the Lovecraft pastiche to make it a vehicle that tells us more about Lovecraft and his world rather than simply extending the roll call of unpronounceable gods. And rather than regurgitating tropes that were brand new and exciting back in the 1920’s, I wanted to create stories that were true to the essence of Lovecraft, but were as shocking and unprecedented as Lovecraft’s stories were when they first started to appear in small circulation fanzines and in the pages of Weird Tales." - Alan Moore

A 1983 issue of the UK Marvel anthology Daredevils featured an odd back-up story that spoofed Frank Miller's acclaimed run on Daredevil. This throwaway strip would've probably been forgotten...if it weren't written by Alan Moore.

This strip — entitled "Grit!" — was a pitch-perfect mock-up of Miller's gritty depiction of New York City. Artist Mike Collins assiduously emulated Daredevil's style. Moore kept Miller's tone but replaced his prose with a story straight out of Cracked or Mad.

"It was during my conversations with Garth, since I was a delighted convert to his Crossed work, that I was just saying the kind of thoughts that Crossed tended to arouse in me. I was thinking, 'Yeah, so what would happen to the world? Would it be a universally bad thing, the Crossed outbreak?' And actually, you could say that for 99 percent of the species on the planet, no it would be great." - Alan Moore
