Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe adapted by Stacy King

This book was downloaded via NetGalley during a comic/graphic novel binge that I was on.I had a digest book with these stories when I was younger, which lay forgotten at the back of my mind till I started on this Graphic novel. The stories are deep and dark by themselves and the graphics add to the eerie feeling that comes over with its reading.

The book was very enjoyable ( not in a happy frivolous way due to the content itself) and the illustrations seem perfect for the tales. The stories included are : The Tell Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado ,The Fall of the House of Usher  , The Mask of the Red Death , The Raven ( a poem). Definitely meant for fans of the macabre.
