“Treehouse Of Horror Crossed With Drunk History”: Take A Peek At Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter Of Terror #1
by Olly MacNamee
I’ve been fortune enough to get my grubby hands on an advance review copy of this new title, from Ahoy Comics, and its a great, fun read. But, before I bore you all with my rambling son the upcoming debut issue of Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror #1, I thought I’d share a preview of the book with you today.
It’s out October 31st, naturally, and contains stories written by Tom Peyer and Mark Russell with art by Fred Harper, Peter Snejbjerg and Hunt Emerson (who’s art exhibition is on now as part of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival).
Famous author/day drunk Edgar Allan Poe introduces tales of suspense, shock, and disgust! Some are adapted from his own stories, others from his fellow dwellers in the public domain. All are presented in vile and lurid comics form!
Meeting Poe as equals, we don’t merely adapt the classic horror tales of the Victorian era; we improve them, using more dynamic images, sexier characters, and fresh twists never before gasped at! It’s like Treehouse of Horror crossed with Drunk History crossed with us bottoming out!
