It was nice to see a new post last week from Brian at Geek-o-Rama praising Issue #2 of our new series with Action Lab, THE HOUSE OF MONTRESOR, especially after his only so-so review of Part 1.

Despite a nice, lengthy round of reviews for Part 1 that were high praise and happiness, we know we can’t win them all, especially with a new sequel to such a beloved and well-known classic (I mean, Edgar Allan Poe’s Cask of Amontillado??? We must be mad!) And Brian was one of the skeptics. But after just a bit of side-eye for Part 1, Brian had quite a lot to say for our second issue and we’re glad to have earned such a great review for part 2. He said:

“The first issue of this sequel was a little slow, as openers sometimes are, but this one more than made up for it. I am completely immersed in this story now and cannot wait to see what happens next. I’m far more convinced now that this unlikely continuation of a Poe classic is one you’re not going to want to miss.”

House of Montresor is in local comic shops now, where you can also pick up our adaptation of the original Cask of Amontillado. Your shop didn’t order it??? Tell them it’s in Previews! And look out for Part 3 next month!

The House of Montresor is a sequel to Edgar Allan Poe’s original gothic short story, The Cask of Amontillado, written by Enrica Jang with art by the amazing Jason Strutz. This comic fills in the story of Poe’s most cold-blooded killer, Montresor, and what he’s been up to fifty years after getting away with the perfect murder. Only one member of his victim’s bloodline is still alive, and Montresor is not finished tormenting the Fortunato family. Out in stores now, and published by Action Lab!
