    Pick Up Poo

    With the publication of The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo this creative team has redefined humor literature, while retaining all the much loved characteristics of a vintage comic book! From the opening scene, the reader is treated to a visually stimulating array of high gloss, celestial dream-scape styled illustrations that captivate the senses and bring the dialogue to life. Dwight MacPherson has masterfully threaded details of Poe's life and writings into the very fabric of this tale. Capturing the essence of Poe's tormented spirit with an imaginative story that would leave the master himself spellbound. The narrative is both intelligent and highly creative, utilizing the many aspects of Poe, MacPherson has etched his characters with surgical precision. The story opens with Edgar in, of all places, an outhouse. In the aftermath of his wife's tragic death and the failure of his last book Mr. Poe's creativity has split...literally--becoming Edgar Allan Poo. We follow the absolutely adorable Poo as he makes his way through Terra Somnium, guided by Irving the Rat. Exploring mysterious places like Incubi and Spindle Town in search of the Maghi, the duo face an assortment of creatures and monsters. As bad guys begin crossing into reality, Poo and Poe must fight an epic battle of survival. From conception to publication, this has been a labour of love for MacPherson and it shows! The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo is a one of a kind literary tale and without it, no collection could be considered complete. This brilliant concept will bewitch and beguile graphic and literature lovers alike, it has something for everyone...and it's a heck-of-a-lot of fun! Happy Reading!

    Fabulous artwork, absolutely great

    Thomas Boatwright is a fantastic artist. The book is worth purchasing for his art alone. From his early work with his own independent comic, Cemetery Blues, to various free-form artworks, to this, his talent shines throughout. Brilliant wash work, vivid and creative imagery. The story is quite imaginative, putting a spin on Edgar Allan Poe that not many people would have looked into. The title is a tad distracting, causing one to linger on the 'poo' joke, but otherwise is a good read.
