    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...
  • ❤Emm❤ - The Living Mystery
    **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...

The pictures in this tell the story of the poems beautifully and actually mak should understand the poems better.I've never read a manga before but I have always been so intrigued by the Poems by Edgar Allan Poe and s...

    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 ...

    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...

    Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. Summary: The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe is a brilliant collection of some of his best-known stories: The Tell Tale Heart (a murder s haunting guilt), The Cask of Amontillado (a story of brilliant revenge), and The Fall of the House of Usher (an ancient house full of very dark secretes).

    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...
  • 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.

    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 received an ARC from Netgalley for a honest review. Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for providing me the free copy of the book. The Stories of Edgar Allen Poe is a collection of short stories by Edgar Allan Poe, best known for the mysterious effects he created through his stories, evoking a haunting aura. Manga Classics make an amazing attempt to visualize his stories to the reader.The art of this book of Manga Classics was th...

    This review can also be found on my blog: am typically not a fan of Manga books, but I was intrigued to read it in comparison to Gareth Hinds’s adaptation of Poe’s work, with both works coming out within months of each other.The Tell-Tale Heart (art by Virginia Nitouhei)- The first story was challenging for me, as I felt the unnamed narrator was too perfect looking (aka Manga-like). But once I got pas...

    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 ...
  • 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...
  • Jenny OH
    What more can be said about the work of classic horror author Poe? My eight year old is a big fan of scary fiction (she's already inhaled all of "Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark") so I hoped this graphic version of Poe would be a good introduction to some classics of the genre. She enjoyed all the stories and found the illustrations engaging but sometimes confusing - Poe isn't written for eight year olds, of course, not necessarily in the sense...
  • Trina (aNovelReader)
    The artwork on the cover initially attracted me to my first Manga Classic, The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe, but I was completely blown away by the detail in every illustration. The interpretation of each story was impressive. You can tell a lot of research went into this retelling. The book also adds little-known facts about Poe, his writing and his life, which is a nice touch. I look forward to reading more Manga Classics.I received an ARC from t...
  • Tara
    Some of Poe's most popular stories are presented in comic book style in this fantastic book. It is set up as a manga, reading right to left. The original text is used, and the illustrations are as creepy and atmospheric as Poe's writing. This will make an excellent addition to any middle school or high school classroom that already reads Poe's work, especially for students who struggle with the language. Any fan of Edgar Allan Poe will enjoy this...

    This was an interesting version of one of my favorite collections. I am glad to see that someone is keeping these stories alive for the youth of today.
