  • [Shai] The Bibliophage
    The only story of Edgar Allan Poe that I've read was "The Cask of Amontillado," which was a required must-read by our high school teacher over a decade ago. It was both bizarre and gruesome, and reading it again in this graphic novel brought up how I was really horrified back then.Aside from the aforementioned story, there are other four tales in this book: The Tell-Tale Heart; The Raven; The Masque of the Red Death; and The Fall of the Hous...

    A different choice for me. Poe's works are so widely known and have been re-published or turned into TV/film so many times I know many of the stories without actually having read more than maybe 2 of them. And while I've read some graphic novels I've never tried Manga so lots of new experiences all round. Not sure what to expect with Manga but with this graphic novel it seemed to be exactly the same but you start at the back and work forward. Th...

    Netgalley #29Many thanks to Udon and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.Great adaptation! I would have loved to see Red Death in color. That would have been quite striking. The heint was a superb rendering. Also the crowd scenes during Carnival in Casque were good. The people were well defined, didn’t look like a pile of shadows. I enjoyed the little fact snippets thrown in at the end of each story. Triv...

    This book was my first MANGA and after I got the hang of it, I was able to read it comfortably.I am familiar with the works of Edgar Allan Poe, and this book of his stories was brilliantly illustrated and rendered for easy reading.. I have decided that I want to go back to the classics and reread them and this is a great way to do it. I look forward to reading some of the other classics in this format.
  • Emm - Only Reads Books Inhabited by Ghosts
    **This and other horror-fantasy reviews on my blog.**The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe is a worthy compilation of the horror master’s most popular tales, adapted to a sleek manga style. Each is the exact dialogue and malcontent spirit of the original, and each features a different artist.The collection succeeds at recreating that overbearing fog of ghoulish madness and lurking abyss that permeates the originals. I always love a bit of trivia and m...

    Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe by Edgar Allan Poe, Stacy King, and multiple artists4 starsThis is a collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous tales. I have never thought about what Poe’s work would be like it were translated into a manga medium, but I’m glad that I decided to request this on Netgalley because I have been a fan of the Manga Classics series, but I am also a fan of Poe. The two combinations cohesively melded ...
  • Sad Sunday (Princess Consuela Bananahammock)
    NetGalley review.Poe goes manga! Uno-dos-tres! Rumba! To tell the truth, I was never big fan of Poe and I guess I will never be. I tried The Red Masque Of Death and yawned almost all the way (it was a DNF. No surprise.). For me it lacked the impact, some hight notes and something truly gripping. So, if you are a Poe fan, explain why you love him so much, and I will try to understand. But I might end in a disaster, so proceed with your own risk. S...

    *I received a copy of this via Netgalley - thank you so much to the publisher for sending me over a copy!*This was the first real book that I read for the Spooky September readathon, because I mean, what is more spooky than an Edgar Allen Poe story? I was eager to try it out in manga version, since I always fell quite overwhelmed when trying to pick up an actual classic. It turned out to be an interesting medium that I both enjoyed but also got c...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewReally the only reason this got 4 stars instead of 5 for me is because I haaate the Fall of the House of Usher. I get that it's one of Poe's famous works and I totally understand the decision to include it in this volume but it's just so much longer than the other stories and I feel like there's a ton of unnecessary rambling in it that makes my eyes glaze over. I w...

    I was so excited when I found this available on Netgalley. My excitement increased when I found out that this book contains 5 Poe's exciting stories (not to mention that one of them is my ultimate favorite), they are:- The Tell-Tale Heart- The Cask of Amontillado- The Raven- The Masque of Red Death- The Fall of the House of UsherBUT, sadly, the more I read, the more I realize that this book is actually NOT what I expected. I really enjoy The Tell...

    * Received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much! This doesn’t affect the review in any way. My opinions are, as always, my own.*4.5 starsOnce again, I never read the original book and to be honest I don't really know what to think of it. The manga is divided into 5 short stories. And some of them are really tiny! I have no idea how they are in the original classic but in this one, alt...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I was never a big classics reader but over the recent years, I wanted to read more classics. Never would I think I would be reading classics in the form of a manga. I absolutely loved that manga was used to translate Edgar Allan Poe’s dark and heart-racing stories and the artists did a fantastic job.Without any knowledge of or reading any Poe’s stories, I foun...
  • Meaghan
    The Tell-Tale Heart: Something about the added illustrations adds so much more horror to the story itself. The text itself seemed to be directly taken from Poe's tale, but the depth and intensity of the illustrations, especially the narrator's facial expressions, added a whole other layer to the tales.The Cask of Amontillado: While I still enjoyed the illustrations, they didn't add as much to the story as with The Tell-Tale Heart. This may be due...

    “And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted- Nevermore!” Disclaimer: I have never read a book or a story form Edgar Allan Poe, and I decided to throw myself into this manga hoping to feel the gloomy and disturbing atmospheres whereby the author is famous. The experiment was successful.The manga is divided into five stories, I will give my divided opinions:The tell-tale heart:It was the first story-manga I...
  • Jenny Clark
    Edgar Allan Poe is a very good writer and his stores are very atmospheric, they do not however translate so well to manga, seeing as how they have very little dialogue. This was still a good adaptation that remained faithful. The art style worked well for the stories as well. I enjoyed The Raven the most, though that is one of my favorite poems. The Cask of Amontillado was the one that worked the best here, as it had the most dialogue. I did like...
  • Amy Leigh
    There is something magical about reading the classics in manga format. Stacy King does it again by capturing a collection of Edgar Allen Poe's stories and turning them into a beautiful narrative that fits brilliantly with the gorgeous art. The way these volumes are done leaves a lasting impact on the reader, especially if it's a classic written in a form of old English that is difficult to interpret. I think these are magnificent for middle grade...
  • Erin
    I've never read manga before, but I think this was a great way to be introduced. Poe's stories are so delightfully creepy, and the illustrations in this were perfectly eerie and scary. I love that this form of comic might introduce more people to Poe's work.
  • Kushnuma
    I received a free e-copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I hadn't realised that these stories were horror related, but I thought they were quite good although 1 or 2 were a little boring. Also, I don't think that it was a great idea to turn all of these stories in manga form as some of them were mostly narrations.
  • Mavence
    First of all, forgive me people because I honestly haven't read a SINGLE work of Edgar Allan Poe until this. Partly because I'm intimidated by it and partly because I just don't have the time *coughs*too buys reading other books*coughs*. So naturally, seeing that some of his works are compiled and simplified in a manga format I zoomed right into it without further ado. I AM IN LOVE W/ IT MORE because aheem the manga format is just so pretty *sobs...

    Review originally posted at starsI saw that Stormi at Books, Movies and Review Oh my! got an Edgar Allan Poe manga for review from NetGalley, I decided I had to have it. I love Edgar Allan Poe and I thought the idea of reading his stories with illustrations would be fun. I was very excited that approved to review it. This is my first manga and my first digital comic. It took me a little bit to figure out the reading order (this ...

    I love the Manga Classics series. I think they are an amazing way of allowing younger readers to discover classics (great tool for English teachers too), but also readers who find reading classics difficult but still want to know the stories. To be honest, I belong to neither category, I just like graphic novels. So far, I've read the adaptation of Jane Eyre, Great Expectations, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Les Misérables, the Sca...

    I got this of Netgalley.3.5-4 stars.This is an illustrated collection of some of Poe's works. I enjoyed all but the last one (The Fall of the House of Usher - I couldn't really tell you what I read half the time). The artwork is beautiful and I definitely enjoyed the creepy and strange stories/poems in this collection. I haven't read any of Poe before, and I probably won't look up more of it, but I enjoyed this^^ I was right, though, in that the ...
