The Great Karswell is running a week-long birthday tribute to suspense writer Edgar Allan Poe over at his "The Horrors Of It All" blog, and he has generously allowed me to take part by running the Dell Comics adaptation of director Roger Corman's 1963 film "Tales of Terror" which adapted several Poe stories. "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" is a creepy warning about the perils of hypnotism. The movie version of this story starred Vincent Price, Basil Rathbone and Debra Paget. As you read this comics adaptation (from Dell Movie Classics #793) you will definitely be able to see how their likenesses were effectively captured by that issues artist, George Evans.
Enjoy! (and a belated 'Happy 200th Birthday' to the late Mr. Poe)
