The works of Edgar Allan Poe have enthralled and terrified readers for over 150 years. Their macabre blend of doomed romanticism, gothic melodrama and ghoulish destiny earned him a place at the top of the list of fiction's greatest authors. Famous for his poems and short stories, Poe, who was born in Boston in 1809, virtually created the detective story and perfected the psychological thriller.

Here Poe's fiction is re-imagined and revived in a vibrant graphic novel anthology, where the cream of modern comics creators are let loose in the playground of Poe's limitless imagination.
