If you’re a fan of horror comics, or of Edgar Allan Poe, today this one shot comic from Richard Corben hits the stands. It’s a retelling of the two short stories Morella and The Murders in the Rue Morgue–stories of killer apes, and the return of the dead. You can pick it up at your local comic shop, or digitally on Comixology, Dark Horse, or Amazon.
If you prefer collections, you can find these stories later this year reprinted in a hardbound collection, which will include Corben’s previous Edgar Allan Poe retellings, which will be titled Edgar Allan Poe’s Spirts of the Dead. You can find that collection, and the other retellings Richard Corben has done so far, right here on Dark Horse Comics.
Do you have a favorite Poe story? I’ve always been a fan of the popular The Tell-Tale Heart, but the poem Annabel Lee will always be my favorite piece of Poe.
