Poe 1976, Pt. 1

(Continued from Poe 1975, Pt.15)

CREEPY  76
"THE IMP OF THE PERVERSE"


Although a number of reprints (foreign & domestic) appeared, it was a full 9 months before another new POE story turned up after CREEPY's pair of all-POE issues.

The story this time is the relatively-obscure "The Imp Of The Perverse".
It made its comics debut in CREEPY #76, and this may be the only comics version in existence, to this date.

Art this time is by Luis Bermejo.  This was his 2nd of 2 POE adaptations.

Continuing with the score...  this is the 21st out of 24 Warren POE adaptations!!
