Edgar Allan Poe’s classic horror stories are brought to life in this eerie graphic novel adaptation. Illustrated in all black and white drawings, these tales take on a new creepiness, as the reader can now see in vivid detail the images he was only able to imagine.

The following stories are contained in this volume:

  • The Pit and the Pendulum
  • The Raven
  • The Black Cat
  • William Wilson
  • The Imp of the Perverse
  • The Premature Burial
  • The Tell-Tale Heart
  • Annabel Lee
  • The Fall of the House of Usher
  • The Cask of Amontillado
  • Never Bet the Devil Your Head

A word of warning must be given – Poe’s writings are not for the faint of heart. But for those who enjoy a touch of the macabre, these graphic stories will be sure to entertain.
