Poe 1944, Pt. 4

(Continued from Poe 1944, Pt. 3)

YELLOWJACKET COMICS  4
Famous Tales Of Terror  /  "THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER"

For their 3rd Poe adaption, Charlton tackled possibly the most famous and popular of all his stories.  Even as in the movies, this would be adapted many times in comics over the years.

I thought it was interesting how part of the 1960 movie poster used the SAME camera angle as this panel from the 1944 comic-book adaptation.
I'm including a bonus gallery of illustrations by various artists over the decades.
