Poe 1944, Pt. 9

(Continued from Poe 1944, Pt. 8)

YELLOWJACKET COMICS  4
Famous Tales Of Terror  /  "THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER"
     (w/ Gallery of Illustrations)

For their 3rd Poe adaption, Charlton tackled possibly the most famous and popular of all his stories.  Even as in the movies, this would be adapted many times in comics over the years.

The artist, Gustav Schrotter, was active in comics until the early 1950s, at which time he moved into children's book illustration.  Like most of Charlton's Poe adaptations, it's a bit on the crude, primitive side, but it does follow the original short story rather faithfully.

This was his 2nd of 2 Poe adaptations.

I thought it was interesting how part of the 1960 movie poster used the SAME camera angle as this panel from the 1944 comic-book adaptation.
