Poe 1975, Pt.12

(Continued from Poe 1975, Pt.11)

CREEPY  70
"THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO"


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!

3rd in line in CREEPY #70 is that old favorite...

     "THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO".

     This was the 11th version of this, following...
EC's CRIME SUSPENSTORIES #3 (Feb-Mar'51),
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jun'51),
Ziff-Davis' FANTASTIC Vol.1 #3 (Nov'Dec'52),  
Editora Continental's CLASSICOS DE TERROR #1 (1960),  
Dell's Movie Classic TALES OF TERROR (Feb'63),  
Warren's CREEPY #6 (Dec'65),
Editora Taika's ALBUM CLASSICS DE TERROR #4 (1967),
Mundial De Ediciones' MAESTROS DEL TERROR #1 (1970),
O Livreiro's TERROR ILUSTRADO #1 (1970),
Eerie Publications' TERROR TALES v.6 #1 (Feb'74),
and Skywald's SCREAM #5 (Apr'74)
     ...the last one, only a year earlier.

This was also the 2nd of 5 POE stories that Warren had done in the late 60s that they wound up doing new versions of in the 70s.  (Which may explain why no one has EVER done a truly "complete" set of Warren POE stories in any one place... until this blog!)  Strangely enough, all 3 stories from EERIE were later redone (and they seem to be often ignored when it comes to reprint collections).

The artist this time is Martin Salvador.
This would be his 2nd of 2 POE adaptations.

For some reason, "Fortunato" this time around reminds me of Edward Asner... or maybe, Danny DeVito. (In the case of the former, it makes me imagine Ted Knight in the role of "Montressor".)

And that brings us up to the 17th out of 25 Warren POE adaptations!!
