    The Incredible Mr. Poe: Comic Book Adaptations of the Works of Edgar Allan Poe, 1943-2007

    This full-color exhibit catalog by M. Thomas Inge features illustrations and information from the Poe Museum's retired exhibit "Poe in Comics." It includes an introduction by the Poe Museum's curator Christopher Semtner, and details the history of Edgar Allan Poe's presence in comic books and graphic novels.

    In the area of comics, Poe has been mentioned or used as a source of humor or intrigue in hundreds of magazine panel cartoons and comic strips, and a great many comic book adaptations have appeared, more than for any other American writer, only Herman Melville or Mark Twain being his closest competitors. According to  the incomplete evidence available, Poe's stories have been adapted for comic book form over 300 times.

    Paperback, 72 pages.
