If you had ever seen the superb "Evil Dead" film series, you would know that the Necronomicon in the comic strip you cite is in actuality the eldritch tome of said movies, not at all related to the Necronomicon described in Lovecraft's "Cthulhu Mythos".

"Nor is it to be thought, that man is either the oldest or last of earth's masters, or that the common bulk of life and substance walks alone. The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be. Not in the spaces we know, but *between* them, They walk serene and primal, undimensioned and to us unseen. Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where they have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold them as They tread. By Their smell can men sometimes know Them near, but of Their semblance can no man know, saving only in the features They have begotten on mankind; and of those there are many sorts, differing in likeness from man's truest eidolon to that shape without sight or substance which is Them. They walk unseen and foul in lonely places where the Words have been spoken and the Rites howled through at their seasons."
--Page 751 of the complete edition of the Al-Azif
