The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe

The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe

Poe, Edgar Allen, illus. by Bill Fountain The Tell Tale Heart. Mojo Press, 1995. ISBN 978-1885418036 pp. $


This slim volume reinvents Poe through illustration, most strikingly when the artist interprets the narrator of The Tell Tale Heart as a female servant revealing herself through dialogue, and the voice rings eerily true. Also included in this graphic novel version are favorites such as the Bells and Annabel Lee, illustrated with dark gothic flair. A must have for any graphic novel collection, and a fine compliment to other Poe collections–but good luck finding it!
