"O CORACAO REVELADOR"
I have been finding a TON of POE comics (and illustrated stories) overseas... many of them from Brazil.
Editiora Vecchi was a Brazillian publisher founded in 1913 by Italian emigrant Arturo Vecchi. They became known for their comics, including horror titles SOBRENATURAL, HISTORIAS DO ALEM, PESADELO, and... SPEKTRO.
SPEKTRO ran from January 1977 to 1982, at its peak selling 40,000 copies an issue. It began, oddly enough, with reprints of Gold Key's DR. SPEKTOR, but ran through those stories so quickly it soon expanded to reprinting Fawcett's Dr. Death and Dr. Mystery, and Charlton's Dr. Graves (I see a pattern here), as well as stories from Brazillian publisher Continental / Outubro / Taika's CLASSICOS DE TERROR.
I'll admit right here, detailed information about many Brazillian comics has been hard to track down, so that at the moment, I'm not entirely sure which stories, if any, are new to SPEKTRO, and which are reprints (and where they may have originally appeared). However, I believe this was new in 1977, since it appears artist Vilmar Rodrigues worked for Vecchi in the 1980s.
At any rate, this brings us to another perrenial favorite...
"THE TELL-TALE HEART".
This was the 17th comics version of this story, following...
Charlton's YELLOWJACKET COMICS #6 (Dec'45),
EC's THE HAUNT OF FEAR #15  (May-Jun'50),
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jun'51),
EC's SHOCK SUSPENSTORIES #8 (Apr-May'53),
EC's THE HAUNT OF FEAR #20 (Jul-Aug'53),
Charlton's WIN A PRIZE #1 (Feb'55),
Warren's CREEPY #3 (Jun'65),
Outubro's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #7 (1968),
Gino Sansoni's I CLASSICI A FUMETTI #17 (Sep'69),
Marvel's CHAMBER OF DARKNESS #3 (Feb'70),
Mundial's MAESTROS DEL TERRROR #5 (1970),
Skywald's SCREAM #8 (Aug'74),
Marvel's CRAZY #7 (Oct'74),
Milano Libre's ALTER LINUS #9 (Sep'75),
Novaro's CUENTOS DE EDGAR ALLAN POE (1975), and
Marvel's MARVEL CLASSICS COMICS #28 (May'77)
...the last one only 3 months earlier!
I had decided beyond a certain point to stop posting foreign versions of POE comics in the other languages, and only post my own English translations. Since this is an illustrated version of the original story, there didn't seem much point in doing a translation... so what I decided to do was to copy the actual text from another site, and re-format it to fit what was on the SPEKTRO pages!! I think this worked quite well.
