Poe 1951, Pt. 3

(Continued from Poe 1951, Pt. 2)

CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED  84
 "THE TELL-TALE HEART"

Gilberton's 5th and final foray into Poe was also their 2nd all-Poe issue.

Second up this time...  "THE TELL-TALE HEART".

     This was the 3rd comics version of this story (more or less), following...
Charlton's YELLOWJACKET COMICS #6 (Dec'45), and  
EC's THE HAUNT OF FEAR #15 [1] (May-Jun'50)
     ...the latter only a year earlier.

It's perhaps fitting that after this issue, Gilberton never tackled Poe again, and the author's works instead began appearing with never-ending frequency in other company's "horror" books.
