And we’ll be celebrating for most of this week with some of Poe’s most memorable horror hits. Today we begin the festivities with The Murders in the Rue Morgue, from the July 1944 issue of Classics Illustrated #21… followed by a bonus story!
Thanks again to Todd Hunter, who sent me these scans waaay back in May of 2008… I was saving them for this most special occasion!
TOMORROW: More Poe! Lots more…
Can’t wait until tomorrow for more Poe? Then check out David Tackett’s new Quasar Dragon II blog for The Curse of Metzengerstein, a THOIA submitted tale of terror from the June 1953 issue of Chilling Tales #16.
And from the February 1963 issue of Dell Movie Classic #793 (aka Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Terror) and based on the motion picture “Tales of Terror” directed by Roger Corman and starring Vincent Price, Basil Rathbone, Peter Lorre, and Debra Paget.
