Edgar Allan Poe Lives!!!!
The Edgar Allan Poe Chronicles, a graphic novel anthology, launched on March 26th on Kickstarter to thunderous applause. In less than 24 hours, the campaign for this book has raised over $1,200 and 60% of it’s funding!
The team on this comic has created 13 tales of suspense and mystery based on Edgar Allan Poe’s stories and poems. Each of our crative teams took on a different work of Poe’s and added our own little twist to it. A couple of examples: Annabel Leeis retold as a vampire tale, The Conversation with a Mummy never ends because the mummy has been cooped up for so long he just can’t shut his mouth, Masque of the Red Death is about the impending robot apocalypse. All these ideas and more come out through these wonderful stories.
The Edgar Allan Poe Chronicles has been created by over 20 writers and artists including, James Mascia, Clay Adams, James Burton, Russell Nohelty, Eric Young, Eddy Heddington, Kyle Roberts, Ryan Kroboth, Pat Shand, Bill McCormick, Madeleine Holly-Rosing, Rahil Mohsin, Tyler Wentland, Craig Dixon, Will Allred, Adam Markiewicz, Marcio Loerzer, Sean Fitzgibbon, Jeff Aragon, David Thomas, and Brian Biggerlion Daniel.
This project was created simply because each of the creators loves Poe. James Mascia is the brainchild behind his project, and he thought of it as a way of introducing Poe to someone who has never read him before, while giving his fans some new twists on these already twisted stories.
The campaign for The Edgar Allan Poe Chronicles will run through April 24th only on Kickstarter.
