Our comic adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s CASK OF AMONTILLADO hit stores January 20th, and Aubrey Douglas of the Comic Book Illuminati was one of the first to post a review. The verdict: 9 out 10!
The book, published by Action Lab Entertainment, is in comic shops across the country and the review posted at OutrightGeekery.com. Douglas notes:
“Certain parts are much more striking in the comic medium than they were just reading the story in a book…The atmosphere and scene come off as very foreboding.”
Read the full review 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!
