Papercutz is delighted to bring you three of Poe’s greatest deductive works under the CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED banner in “The Murders in the Rue Morgue and Other Tales,” a lavishly illustrated introduction to these essential origins of the mystery genre. The Parisian streets come alive through the masterful period artwork of Fabrice Druet and Paul Marcel in “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” where it’s up to the mighty Dupin to think of the unthinkable when confronted with a locked door, a double murder, and an untouched chest of gold. “The Gold Bug” is an intricate tale of code-breaking and greed bordering on madness, while in “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” Dupin examines a truly gruesome but “ordinary” crime and strips away the layers of opinion clouding the true story.
