Poe 1968, Pt. 19

(Continued from Poe 1968, Pt. 18)

I CLASSICI A FUMETTI  7
"IL DELITTI DELLA VIA MORGUE"

     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation  /  Part 2)

Gino Sansoni Editore was a publisher in Italy active in the 1960s & 70s.

Like Société Parisienne d'Édition's MONDIAL AVENTURES in France, Sansoni's I CLASSICI A FUMETTI was an attempt to emulate the success and subject matter of Gilberton's wildy-successful CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED.  The series was done in a tiny digest format, in B&W, with 2-3 panels per page.  It appears to have run at least 28 issues from 1967-70, and included a number of adapations not done in Gilberton's entire run.  Many of the stories focused on beautiful, sexy women, something reflected in most of their covers.

Among them were a number of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations.

First up...

     "THE MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE"

The 1st part of this adaptation removed the long conversation in the street in which Poe introduced readers to how his character C. Auguste Dupin's thought processes worked (very much in the style of the much-later Arthur Conan Doyle character, Sherlock Holmes), and replaced the also-long written newspaper accounts of a double-murder with a far more "movie-style" visual depiction of same.

The 2nd part of this adaptation now switches over to a long, rather more static conversation between Dupin and his friend in their house.  Once I realized this section followed the original Poe story very closely, I endeavored to use as much of his actual words as possible in the translation.
