Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-A collection of adaptations of 13 of Poe's poems and short stories. Many favorites are included, such as "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Raven," and "The Fall of the House of Usher"; some less-well-known works also make an appearance. The short stories are usually either abridged or paraphrased; "Hop Frog" and "The Black Cat" stand as exceptions, presented in their entirety with a few smart illustrations occasionally breaking the text. While no adaptation will ever completely do justice to Poe's genius, his original words are handled carefully and with due respect. However, where this edition of Graphic Classics succeeds most brilliantly is in its renditions of Poe's poems, which remain untouched yet are sumptuously and often lavishly decorated. Of particular note is Rafael Nieves and Juan Gomez's "The Bells." From J. B. Bonivert's psychedelic interpretation of "The Raven" to John Coulthart's gothic plates in "The Haunted Palace," each retelling opens new and engaging perspectives into Poe's masterpieces. The potential that this book has to draw comics readers, reluctant or otherwise, into the world of classic literature is enough to make it a worthwhile purchase; the quality of the art and storytelling makes it a noteworthy addition to any collection.-J.
