Merging art and classics is great but now Classics Illustrated presents a volume of the poems of Edgar Allan Poe, illustrated by Gahan Wilson. I can't imagine a better combination of talent in one volume. Poems in this volume are The Raven, Annabel Lee, Lines on Ale, The City in the Sea, The Sleeper, Eldorado, Alone, The Haunted Palace, and The Conquerer Worm. The book also has a sneak peek at Marion Mousse's adaptation of Frankenstein.

From official release/information:

Product Description: 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.
