Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness
Edgar Allan Poe. Atheneum Books, $18.99 (144pp) ISBN 978-0-689-84837-7
Gris Grimly applies his wicked pen to four of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness: ""The Black Cat,"" ""The Masque of the Red Death,"" ""Hop-Frog"" and ""The Fall of the House of Usher."" The morbid and fearsome text makes an ideal match for Grimly's gothic aesthetic. His artwork runs the gamut from a comic book-like progression of the search for the black cat to a medical textbook-style visual analysis of Roderick Usher. (Sept.) .
