Poe 1964, Pt. 4

(Continued from Poe 1964, Pt. 3)

COURRIERE DEI PICCOLI  1964 23 & 24
"LO SCARABEO D'ORO"
 
     (Illustrated Story)

Corriere Della Sera was an Italian newspaper publisher who included a color comic-book magazine supplement in their Sunday papers.  On occasion, they would do adaptations of "Classics", or feature illustrated versions of the original texts.  Which brings us to...

     "THE GOLD BUG"

     This was the 7th comics version of this story, following...
David C. Cook's SUNDAY PIX #1-14 (May 1-July 31, 1949),  
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jun'51),  
Boy Scouts Of America's BOYS' LIFE (Jul'54),  
Empresa Nacional de Publicidade's CAVALEIRO ANDANTE #453 (Sep'60),  
Sea/Novaro's TESORO DE CUENTOS CLASICOS #51 (Nov'61), and  
Thorpe & Porter's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jul'62), 
     ...the last some 23 months earlier.

When I saw the fully-painted art of G. RENNA, I just knew I had to include this in the POE project!

Indirectly, I have fellow fan Ron Harris to thank for my finding this.  He pointed me toward the adaptations of Italian artist Dino Battaglia, who had done 10 POE adaptations-- 2 of which appeared in COURRIERE DEI PICCOLO.  Those 2 haven't turned up yet-- but this one did!

I didn't see much point in doing an English translation and/or text reformatting on this one.  To read the original story in English, click HERE.
