Poe 1975, Pt.10

(Continued from Poe 1975, Pt. 9)

CREEPY  70
"THE MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE"


2 months and 1 issue after Warren did an all-POE issue of CREEPY, they did another one, making for a total of 13 POE stories in only 5 months from them!  It blows my mind to think that in all the years I've been a fan of Warren's output, I was never aware of these issues-- and never had them in my collection.  Well, at least thanks to the internet, I have finally been able to read their contents-- and, share them with whoever is reading this blog!

Kicking off CREEPY #70 is the classic detective story...

     "THE MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE".

     This was the 8th version of the story, following...
Gilberton's CLASSIC COMICS #21 (Jul'44),
Marvel's LAWBREAKERS ALWAYS LOSE #10 (Oct'49),
Milano Libri 's LINUS #39 (Jun'68),
Gino Sansoni's I CLASSICI A FUMETTI #7 (Jul-Sep'68),
Ibero Mundial's DOSSIER NEGRO #41 (Oct'72),
Skywald's SCREAM #10 (Oct'74), and  
ILLUSTRATED CLASSICS (Jan'75)
     ...the last around this same time.

The artist this time is Jose Ortiz.  He has the distinction of doing more stories for Warren than ANY other artist!!!  This would be his 2nd of 2 POE adaptations.

Which brings us up to the 15th out of 25 Warren POE adaptations!!   
And here we go...!
