Hola, horror-obsessed ones.
Welcome back to another show and another blog addendum post featuring some images from the comic under discussion. As mentioned in the podcast and the title of the post, Misty and I looked at Richard Corben’s adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque Of The Red Death!
Here’s the episode link:
If you want to track down this eminently disturbing little yarn, you can find it in Dark Horse Comics’ Spirits of the Dead collection, which was initially put out as a Hardcover in 2014, but was reprinted in 2019 as a softcover. This collects all of Richard Corben’s POE tales in one nifty little package.
Here follows some of our favorite pages and panels. Enjoy!
Hope you enjoyed the episode, darklings. Look out for another one next week, as we get into PART II of our Nightmare Plague discussions.
As a bonus, here are some of the tomes we used for our Poe research.
The first is the Horror collection my dad gifted me in 1992 that introduced me to our friend Edgar, while the second is my most recent, and useful, acquisition. I can highly recommend both these volumes.
Take care of yourselves, friends in darkness 😉
