Description

In a thrilling adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s best-known works, acclaimed artist-adapter Gareth Hinds translates Poe’s dark genius into graphic-novel format.

In ‘The Cask of Amontillado,’ a man exacts revenge on a disloyal friend at carnival, luring him into catacombs below the city. In ‘The Masque of the Red Death,’ a prince shielding himself from plague hosts a doomed party inside his abbey stronghold.

A prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, faced with a swinging blade and swarming rats, can’t see his tormentors in ‘The Pit and the Pendulum,’ and in ‘The Tell-Tale Heart,’ a milky eye and a deafening heartbeat reveal the effects of conscience and creeping madness.

Alongside these tales are visual interpretations of three poems - ‘The Raven,’ ‘The Bells,’ and Poe’s poignant elegy to lost love, ‘Annabel Lee.’
