Finished up a really great week with the Comics Alternative podcast review of our version of Edgar Allan Poe’s CASK OF AMONTILLADO! Published by Action Lab, the new comic is in stores now. And what did the ‘2 Guys with PhDs Talk About Comics‘ have to say about us? Why, Cask of Amontillado is just what the doctor ordered! (badum-bum-che!)

Kidding. But they did say it was great! Derek is joined by fellow Poe fan, Gwen, to give an in-depth review of this newest adaptation of the Poe classic, calling the book “visually stunning” and much more. We are also excited to hear that both are looking forward to the debut of our new series and sequel to Cask, THE HOUSE OF MONTRESOR, due out in comic shops next month!

Though we’re in very fine company this week and we recommend you listen to the entire show for some great reccs for other new books, review for Cask of Amontillado begins at the 56:40 mark. Listen here:

Cask of Amontillado cover Action Lab
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!

In shops now! Not at your LCS? Ask your comic shop to order CASK OF AMONTILLADO in Previews!
