Here’s a creative imagining of classic literary figures – Image Comics has taken Edgar Allan Poe and dived deep into his mind to discover what troubles his mind. Image has sent us a sneak peek of The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo, and it is strange.
Edgar Allan Poe just lost everything. His dead wife is haunting him in his dreams, his latest book has bombed, and the imagination that fueled his stories has become a curse. His prayer to never dream again is answered one evening as he falls asleep in an outhouse. His discarded creativity takes the form of his dream child, Edgar Allan Poo, who must now undergo a strange odyssey through the poet’s troubled mind. This August, Shadowline presents a twisted glimpse into the dream life of America’s greatest fantasist in Dwight L. MacPherson & Thomas Boatwright’s unusual epic THE SURREAL ADVENTURES OF EDGAR ALLAN POO!
The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo arrives in August.
