Poe 1969, Pt. 6

(Continued from Poe 1969, Pt. 5)

MINI TERROR  132
"LA CASA DE USHER"
     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation)

Editorial Argumentos, S.A. was a publisher in Mexico, active in the 1960s to the 1980s.  One of the things they specialized in was mini-comics.  Much smaller than digests, these books were ??" x ??", small enough to fit in your shirt pocket!

A popular series from them was MINI TERROR, an anthology that ran from 1966-82 for at least 839 issues.  As you might have guessed, among them were several POE adaptations!

First up:

     "THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER"

     This was the 11th comics version of this story, following...
Charlton's YELLOWJACKET COMICS #4 (Dec'44),  
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #40 (Aug'47),
Register & Tribune's THE SPIRIT (Aug'48),
EC's THE VAULT OF HORROR #13 (Jun-Jul'50),
Prize's BLACK MAGIC #28 (Jan-Feb'54), 
EC's TERROR ILLUSTRATED #1 (Nov'Dec'55),
Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #5 (1967),
Serg's 3 HISTOIRES EXTRAORDINAIRES (1968), and
Warren's EERIE #20 (Mar'69), and
Milano Libri Edizioni's LINUS #50 (May'69)
     ...the previous one earlier this same month!

I had already acqured 2 of these books when Cecilio Glez in Mexico found this on February 17, 2020.  He bought it, and didn't want to sell it to me, but said he's send me HIGH-RES scans.  What a guy!

ENJOY!
