RICHARD CORBEN UNEARTHS POE’S CONQUEROR WORM


Dark Horse’s horror line continues to get under your skin with the announcement of comics legend Richard Corben’s truly horrifying adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem “The Conqueror Worm.”

In Edgar Allan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm, a betrayed man hunts down his wife and her lover, only to stumble upon a gruesome puppet show based on his life. This series will be rotten to the core!

Corben will also be lending his talents to the Eisner-nominated anthology Dark Horse Presents, penning additional spine-tingling stories by Edgar Allan Poe!

Praise for Richard Corben:

“Atmosphere is key to sell the malevolent atmosphere and is pulled off in style by Corben, who makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time.”—Comic Book Resources

“Richard Corben doing Edgar Allan Poe. If I have to say more than that, I worry about your tastes in comics. You see, Richard Corben is very well known for doing Edgar Allan Poe. He excels at it.”—Comics Bulletin

Edgar Allan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm is on sale November 21, 2012!
