Exclusive: ‘Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror’ Preview

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. read more

AHOY Comics Editor-in-Chief Tom Peyer: The Horror News Network Interview

The horror anthology has long been a favorite of comic readers, dating back to the origin of  horror comics with William Gaines’ seminal EC Comics titles Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror.  We still get the occasional horror anthology comic, but they are much too infrequent for fans of serialized horror, so the news that comic veteran Tom Peyer is launching a new horror title along with his other anthologies from AHOY Comics was met with much excitement.

Peyer will serve as the editor-in-chief of the new company and he has assembled some top creators to work on the new line and we recently got a chance to talk to Peyer about the one that will appeal to horror fans the most:  Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror. read more
