Poe 1969, Pt. 4

(Continued from Poe 1969, Pt. 3)

EL MONJE LOCO  40
"LOS DIENTES DE BERENICE"
     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation  /  Part 2)

EL MONJE LOCO ("The Mad Monk") could be described as Mexico's version of EC's horror hosts-- except, he predated them by quite a few years.  Created by Galilea Montijo, the character debuted on a radio show in 1937, before spinning off into feature films, and comic-books.

Among them stories were a number of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations.

Second up...

     "BERENICE"

     This was the 4th comics version of this, following...
Outubro's CLASSICOS OF TERROR #8 (1962),  
Warren's EERIE #11 (Sep'67), and
Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #6 (1968)
     ...the latter about a year earlier.

As with the previous El Monje Loco POE adaptation, this one has been "updated" to the modern day, as evidenced by the clothing fashions and automobiles.  I suppose one can take this as evidence that POE stories are "timeless".

The art is by Carlos Moro.

This was his 1st of 3 POE adaptations.  Enjoy!

Poe 1969, Pt. 3

(Continued from Poe 1969, Pt. 2)

EL MONJE LOCO  40
"LOS DIENTES DE BERENICE"
     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation)

Revistas Populares was a publisher in Mexico active in the 1960s & 70s.

EL MONJE LOCO ("The Mad Monk") could be described as Mexico's version of EC's horror hosts-- except, he predated them by quite a few years.  Created by Galilea Montijo, the character debuted on a radio show in 1937.  Like EC's later "Vault Keeper", he wore a robe with a hood over his head, and introduced and/or narrated countless horror tales.  His famous catch-phrase was, "Nadie sabe, nadie supo" ("No one knows, no one knew"), immortalized by the cavernous voice of Salvador Carrasco.

Over time, he was spun off into feature films, and comic-books.  MANY comic-books!!!

Among them stories were a number of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations.

This was his 1st of 3 POE adaptations.

As far as I know, none of these have ever been translated into English.
