The Raven, Annabel Lee, Eldorado, The Sleeper, The Haunted Palace, The City in the Sea.  These are some of the world’s most fascinating, best-loved poems.  Edgar Allan Poe’s verses—masterpieces of mystery, horror, melancholy, and haunting melody—grip the imagination and fuel the emotions. World-famous New Yorker and Playboy cartoonist Gahan Wilson, whose work finds the eerie in the most common of situations, brings the perfect, surreal touch to Poe’s elegantly dark poems.

Praise for Classics Illustrated #4: The Raven & Other Poems

Praise for Classics Illustrated
 
"Children are more ruthless about what they consider entertaining. They don’t love books because they think they should. They love stories that deliver, and Classics Illustrated always had the goods. Looks like it still does."—Newsweek

"Highly imaginative art and adaptations." — Diamond Galleries Scoop

"For those who may have grown up with the original Classics Illustrated, Papercutz’s decision to resurrect the series will be welcome news."—Omnivoracious 

"The remarkably detailed color illustrations open passages that words alone cannot convey. Recommended."—Library Media Connection
