Action Lab Entertainment is bringing our continuation of Poe’s famous revenge tale, CASK OF AMONTILLADO to comics and Matt Connor at BamSmackPOW.com interviewed artist Jason Strutz for some dark details.
“In Edgar Allan Poe’s classic short story, The Cask Of Amontillado, the wicked Montresor enacts a cruel vengeance on drunken buffoon Fortunato. Beginning in January 2016, Action Lab will publish a new comic adaptation of this story as the first part of a five-issue project fleshing out the character and destiny of Montresor. The first issue will adapt the original short story, The Cask Of Amontillado, and the remaining four issues will be The House Of Montresor, an original story covering the killer’s life fifty years later in a German village. The story should be available in a graphic novel format early summer 2016. Series artist Jason Strutz spoke to Bam Smack Pow about this upcoming book”
Couldn’t have written it better ourselves! Read the full profile here:
The Cask of Amontillado is the macabre story of ultimate revenge by Edgar Allan Poe. This haunting and sinister illustrated work is by artist Jason Strutz, adapted for the comic page by writer Enrica Jang. This 24-page full color comic is the perfect way to prep for the release of The House of Montresor, a full-length graphic novel by the same creative team, and a sequel to Poe’s Cask of Amontillado, expanding and continuing the tale of murder and vendetta that the villainous Montresor only hints at, fifty years after committing the “perfect” crime!
