This Halloween Ahoy Comics will be unleashing Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror, a horror anthology in the format of a magazine. A pretty bold move for the publisher in the digital age. The magazine presents itself as an anthology in the same vein as Tales from the Crypt. Your guide though the short macabre tales is none other than the godfather of goth himself, Edgar Allan Poe.
While horror anthologies are not new to comic fan, the retro formatting of the magazine may be new to a whole new generation of the darker side of comics. Mixed in with letters to the Editor, interviews and such, Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror is a fun read. The magazine will also feature Hunt Emerson’s take on Poe’s The Black Cat, which will be ongoing in each issue.
Horror News Network has an exclusive look at the covers for the first five issues by MAD magazine artist Richard Williams.
