The Tell-Tale Heart (Edgar Allan Poe Graphic Novels) by Benjamin Harper

The Tell-Tale Heart (Edgar Allan Poe Graphic Novels) - Benjamin Harper

This was SO GOOD.


Now, I might be slightly biased seeing as how I am completely in love with all things Poe and "The Tell-Tale Heart" is my all time favorite story. Still, I feel like that makes me even more picky about how it's presented.


The art in this graphic novel is magnificent. Our narrator is so real looking, so harried and wild, that it makes his stance as an unreliable person all the more vivid. Each panel was excellent. The blue eye, oh that evil blue eye, was piercing in its color. Add in some wonderful panel placement choices, and you had a graphic novel that I flew through.


MORE! I want more. "Murders in the Rue Mourge" and "The Pit and the Pendulum" are the two others in this series that I haven't tackled yet. That will soon be remedied.
