Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The illustrations combine pastel hues, ink lines and cross-hatching, and eerie images for a spine-chilling effect"

-School Library Journal

"This match of Poe and Wilson was made in Heaven. Wilson's illustrations are just bizarre and innocent enough to appeal to kids while not dulling the edge of Poe's words. I would think the book would be perfect for kids aged maybe 8 - 12 or so. It's a great medium to keep the works of Poe alive! Grade A"

-Tim Janson, Mania.com

"Each illustration contains that Wilson style we have come to love. Humorous, macabre, quirky, detailed and a truly unique style that more than appropriately shares space with Poe's work."

-horrornews.net

“Wilson… illustrates (very well, and appropriately) a bunch of Poe poems.”-Andrew Wheeler, antikmusings.blogspot.com

“A terrific compendium… It's a great Poe volume — the themes of unbearable loss and creeping pestilence are all here, so put it on your Halloween shopping list now.”-Mark London Williams, sfsite.com

“Wilson's style is perfectly suited to Poe's turn of phrase, as his artwork moves across the page with the cadence established by the words. But don't take my word for it. At $9.95 this modern classic is a bargain — so order two copies and donate one to your local library!”-Karen, leaveittokaren.blogspot.com

“NBM [Papercutz parent company], known for its high-quality graphic novels…demonstrates its taste and expertise again with CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. The Deluxe hardbacks are meant to last, and look good doint it…it’s a joy to see “The Raven,” “The Counquerer Worm,” “Annabel Lee” and other favorites again…Wilson, known primarily for his award-winning New Yorker, Playboy and National Lampoon Cartoons, is also one of a kind - - and a perfect choice for this book. His peculiar and sometimes bizarre scribblings are unsettling, and given the subject matter, welcome.”-Andrew Smith, Scripps News
