"These versions of Poe's best-loved and less familiar tales are destined to capture the imagination of a generation new to the master of terror, as well as delight long-time admirers of Poe."--Roger Corman, Film Director and Producer



This haunting graphic anthology features the most famous stories of terror and suspense by Edgar Allan Poe, adapted by nine teams of celebrated writers and illustrators. Each story is translated in a different visual style, but they all succeed in capturing Poe's macabre blend of doomed romanticism, gothic melodrama, and ghoulish destiny. Inside you'll find an illustrated biography of Poe and his most memorable stories, including: "The Raven," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Black Cat," "The Oval Portrait," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and "The Masque of the Red Death."
