Poe 1967, Pt. 4

(Continued from Poe 1967, Pt. 3)

ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR  3
"HOP FROG"

     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation)

Editora Continental / Outubro / Taika were 3 names used by the same small publisher in Brazil.  The work of artists Jayme Cortez & Miguel Penteado, they produced some wonderful comics, many of them in the horror genre, each doing many gorgeous, stunning cover paintings!

I have discovered, between my own researches and the IMMENSE help of artist and fellow fan Toni Rodrigues, that Continental / Outubro / Taika during their run produced at least 25 POE adaptations-- MORE than Skywald or Warren !!  It's my intention to compile, clean up, TRANSLATE and COLOR every one of these for my POE blog project!!

Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR was a series that picked up some 6 years after Continental & Outubro's CLASSICOS DE TERROR ended.

As of June 2016, I finally discovered that ALBUM CLASSICS DE TERROR #3 had 4 POE stories--  "HOP FROG", "THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH", "MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN A BOTTLE", and "SILENCE".  So far, every issue of ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR I've run across has had at least 1 POE story in it-- and only 2 more have not yet turned up in any form.

1st up from this issue, and 8th in line from Taika...
     "HOP FROG".

     This was the 4th comics version of this story, following...
St. John's NIGHTMARE #11 (Feb'54),  
Dell's Movie Classic of THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (Aug-Oct'64), and
Warren's CREEPY #11 (Oct'66), 
     ...the latter 2 years earlier.

The art this time is by Ignacio Justo, who seems to be mostly known for war comics.

This was his 1st of 5 POE stories.
