The works of Edgar Allan Poe have enthralled and terrified readers for over 150 years. Their macabre blend of doomed romanticism, gothic melodrama and ghoulish destiny earned him a place at the top of the list of fiction's greatest authors. Famous for his poems and short stories, Poe, who was born in Boston in 1809, virtually created the detective story and perfected the psychological thriller.

Nevermore showcases Poe's most memorable stories, from the 'The Tell-Tale Heart' to 'The Murders in The Rue Morgue'. Here Poe's fiction is re-imagined and revived in a vibrant graphic novel anthology, where the cream of modern comics creators are let loose in the playground of Poe's limitless imagination.

"The 19th-century American writer is little read outside the US today, but this entertaining adaptation should help to introduce him to new readers."
— Financial Times
"These versions of Poe’s best-loved and less familiar tales are destined to capture the imagination of a generation new to the master of terror, as well as to delight long-time admirers of Poe."
