Poe 1967, Pt. 5

(Continued from Poe 1967, Pt. 4)

ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR  3
"A MASCARA DA MORTE RUBRA!"

     (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!!

9th in line, another version of that popular favorite...
     "THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH".

     This was the 8th comics version of this story, following...
Marvel's ADVENTURES INTO WEIRD WORLDS #4 (Spring'52), Charlton's THE THING #2 (Apr'52), Continental's CLASSICOS DE TERROR #9 (1960), Marvel's STRANGE TALES #83 (Apr'61), Dell's THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH Movie Classic (Aug-Oct'64), and Warren's EERIE #12 (Nov'67), the last one around the SAME time!

Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR was a series that picked up some 4 years after Continental & Outubro's CLASSICOS DE TERROR ended.  The scans I found were from the all-reprint ALMANAQUE CLASSICOS DE TERROR #15 (1973).  

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.

The art this time is by Nico Rosso, one of the most prolific comics artists in Brazil, responsible for a multitude of interior stories, but perhaps best known as "the" DRACULA artist in the 1960s. He also did an enormous number of full-color painted covers.

This was his 1st of 4 POE stories.
