In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe

(2002)
A Graphic Novel by

 
Edgar Allan Poe was driven by demons.A poet and a storyteller, he was haunted by dark moods and darker thoughts, resulting in disturbing stories of high complexity, supernatural terror and exquisite mental turmoil. But were the demons that drove him real? That possibility is explored in the 96-page VERTIGO hardcover IN THE SHADOW OF EDGAR ALLAN POE #151; written by award-winning novelist Jonathan Scott Fuqua (The Reappearance of Sam Webber) and featuring photographic art by Stephen John Phillips (VEILS, I, PAPARAZZI) Steve Parke (I, PAPARAZZI).When a lost diary purported to be written by Poe falls into the hands of Sterling Tuttle, the Poe scholar uncovers a side of the writer that few people ever suspected. In the diary, the voice of the long-dead author reaches out from beyond the grave to give a chilling account of his tortured life. Haunted by the ghosts of his tragic past and the burden of relentless alcoholism, Poe soon finds that his creativity may depend on actual demons who have an unsavory agenda of their own#133;Based on someof Poe's published works, IN THE SHADOW combines actual events in the writer's life with Fuqua and Parke's speculation on the nature of his muse, creating a mysterious drama wherein tragedy and fate intersect. With chilling photographs that invoke the fear that Poe wrestled with, Park Phillips break the traditional boundaries of framed panels and create a graphic novel that explodes with original, unforgettable visuals.
