Book Review


Edgar Allan Poe is synonymous with suspense and mystery. This is a well-illustrated and well-written graphic novel that gives a perfect introduction to the works of the master storyteller. "The Masque of the Red Death" leads the collection with its haughty band of recalcitrant noblemen and women who have left their people to die of plague while they party and mock at death. Read on for the chilling "Cask of Amantillado," where the taste of revenge exceeds fine wine. Also included are "Annabelle Lee," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Bells," and "The Raven." Explore these classic tales in a new and easy to comprehend format.
