Poe 1967, Pt. 7

(Continued from Poe 1967, Pt. 6)


     (Gallery of Illustrations) 

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!!

As of June 2016, I finally discovered that ALBUM CLASSICS DE TERROR #3 had 3 POE stories--  "HOP FROG", "THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH", "MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN A BOTTLE"-- plus, a text story...


This was presented in between the 2nd & 3rd Poe comics stories in this issue, with no illustrations whatsoever!  Since I decided to add my own new art for 2 other such instances (in ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #7), I'm going to do the same thing here.   (12-8-2018)

This is a problem, as, I have just discovered, Poe wrote both a POEM-- "Sonnet-- Silence", and a SHORT STORY--  "Silence -- A Fable".  And I don't know which one was included in this comic.

The writer who did the Portuguese adaptation is M.C. Poyares.  I have not yet been able to find out ANYTHING about him.  He's not even listed in the Guia Dos Quadrinhos database list.  Oh well, we'll see what turns up... eventually.

This is his only POE adaptation.
