“Who has not, a hundred times, found himself committing a vile or silly action for no other reason than because he knows he should not?” — Edgar Allan Poe
Just in time for Halloween, AHOY Comics’ EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR is set to return this week.
The alcohol infused anthology can only be described as a cross between Drunk History and Tales from the Crypt, and features contributions from all star writers and artists including Mark Russell, Peter Snejbjerg, Paul Cornell, Alisa Kwitney, Dean Motter, Linda Medley, Rick Geary, Steve Yeowell, Hunt Emerson, Peter Snejbjerg, Mauricet, Greg Scott and covers by celebrated MAD Magazine artist Richard Williams. Each issue also features Hunt Emerson’s take on The Black Cat.
EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR’s debut issue features the ultimate Poe mashup! In Dean Motter’s “The Tell-Tale Black Cask of Usher,” the drink-addled writer falls prey to his own horrific imagination. Hunt Emerson offers another slapstick “Poe and the Black Cat.” A selection of horrific prose and pictures rounds out the issue.
Written and illustrated by Dean Motter and Hunt Emerson, with additional artwork from Alex Ogle, EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR #1 hits shelves on October 9th, and you can feast your eyes on some of the interior artwork below.
