Edgar Allan Poe’s Morella and the Murders in the Rue Morgue

06/10/2014 1:23pm
Killer apes and the return of the dead are presented in these two gothic horror Poe adaptations by Eisner Hall of Fame inductee Richard Corben.

"Morella and the Murders in the Rue Morgewill also be reprinted later this year in full hardbound collection (also including of all of Corben's previous Poe adaptations) titledEdgardAllan Poe'sSpirits of the Dead. While some may prefer to stick to the original source material, there's nothing wrong with looking at other interpretations of classic works, especially one asimportant to the development of the modern mystery novel. Richard Corben's adaptations are a top-notch homage paying respects to one of the best American horror authors of all time. Who better to retell these stories than one of the world's most talented illustrators and colorist? Simply put, this is a must-own for all horror comic fans. 10 out of 10." - Rhymes With Geek
"Even though the book doesnt leverage more modern techniques, I would easily hand it over to my nieces and nephews to read, and if I were a teacher, I wouldnt think twice about handing this book out. Comics are stepping stones for younger readers, and Poe is also a stepping stone to other thriller/suspense/horror stories out there. Richard Corben makes it easy for young and old readers alike to enjoy some classic, if not neglected short stories by a classic American writer. Its a fitting combo." - Florida Geek Scene
