Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This contains adaptations of a number of Poe's better-known short stories, with a few lesser-known stories and several poems. Included in this volume are: The Masque of the Red Death, Hop Frog, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Raven and The Imp of the Perverse. Unfortunately, limited space makes it impossible to highlight all of Poe's works; none of his marvelous detective stories is included in this volume, though a lesser work like King Pest is. This is a fine introduction to a masterful American writer. Rick Geary, Roger Langridge, Lisa Weber, Matt Howarth and Lance Tooks have all contributed material to this volume, so the stories and poems are illustrated in a variety of artistic styles. Keep in mind that this is the 3rd edition of this volume, so libraries that own previous editions might want to think twice about purchasing. Contains violence and macabre imagery (murder, plague and death). Recommended for libraries that do not own the previous editions. KLIATT Codes: SA--Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2006, Eureka Productions, 144p. illus., $11.95.. Ages 15 to adult.

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. M. Poole, East Rochester Public Library, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
