Poe 1968, Pt. 26

(Continued in Poe 1968, Pt. 25)

VIDAS ILUSTRES  195
"EDGAR ALLAN POE  EL MAESTRO DEL TERROR"
     (w/ English Translation  /  Conclusion)

Editorial Novaro is a publisher based in Mexico City.  Begining in the 1950s, their output has included reprints of American comics.  For "fiscal reasons" they had subdivisions, EMSA (Ediciones Modernas), SEA (Sociedad Editora America), and for many years were the single largest comics publisher in Latin America.

VIDAS ILUSTRES (Illustrious Lives) told the real-life stories of famous people for 338 issues from 1956-1974.

The last 5 pages of this comic, as it turns out, contains in its narrative a short version of one of Poe's most famous stories...

"THE BLACK CAT".

     This was the 7th version of this story, following...
Charlton's YELLOWJACKET COMICS #1 (Sep'44),
EC's THE HAUNT OF FEAR #15 [1] (May-Jun'50),  
St. John's NIGHTMARE #12 (Apr'54), 
Outubro's CLASSICOS DE TERROR #14 (1961),  
Dell's Movie Classic TALES OF TERROR (Feb'63), and 
Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #8 (1968)
     ...the last one sometime the same year.

ENJOY!
