The seven concise graphic narratives, keyed to thematic icons, amplify and honor the timeless legacy of a master of Gothic horror.

In The Cask of Amontillado, a man exacts revenge on a disloyal friend at carnival, luring him into catacombs below the city. In The Masque of the Red Death, a prince shielding himself from plague hosts a doomed party inside his abbey stronghold. A prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, faced with a swinging blade and swarming rats, can't see his tormentors in The Pit and the Pendulum, and in The Tell-Tale Heart, a milky eye and a deafening heartbeat reveal the effects of conscience and creeping madness. Alongside these tales are visual interpretations of three poems — The Raven, The Bells, and Poe's poignant elegy to lost love, Annabel Lee.
