Edgar Allan Poe is well known for his tales of horror, but he also wrote several mysteries. In this Graphic Classic, Poe’s tales of mystery are presented in graphic illustrated format. The stories included in this compilation include The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, and The Masque of the Red Death, as well as many others. Illustration styles vary among these stories, based on each artist’s interpretation of the tale.
Although most of us have, at some time, remarked that we really need to read a classic piece of literature, we seldom do. This unique series allows us to read abridged versions, illustrated by some of the best graphic artists. I highly recommend Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery as well as the other Graphic Classic works.
