Neonomicon is a four part comic miniseries by Alan Moore from 2010. It continues the narrative of his 1994 short story The Courtyard, which had been converted into a comic back in 2003.

The comic tells the story of FBI agents Brears and Lamper who are sent to continue the investigation of the occult murders that had been happening in The Courtyard. They uncover everything that previously happened extremely quickly. Then things take a turn for the worse...

It's worth noting that the reason for this comic's genesis was 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 Avatar Press, 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."

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