TESORO DE QUENTOS CLASICOS 51
"EL ESCARABAJO DE ORO"
(w/ English Translation / Part 2)
TESORO DE CUENTOS CLASICOS ("Treasury Of Classic Tales") was Novaro's home-grown version of Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. Most of the first 159 issues featured "classics" stories. Sprinkled in among them were stories of SHERLOCK HOLMES and FANTOMAS, as well as a number of reprint issues. From issues 160 to 182, the series alternated between HOLMES and ARSENE LUPIN. Issues 183 to 195 featured a series called "Mysteries of The Orient" (except for 194, which was a new "Classic" story). Finally, issues 196 to 211 features stories involving vampires, no doubt a reflection of the early-70s
horror boom. So many publishers would keep the numbering of a run
while changing the title, in this case the odd thing was they would
change the format but maintain the overall title.
TDCC only did 2 Poe adaptations. The first was the perrennial mystery-adventure tale...
"THE GOLD BUG"
This was the 5th comics version of this story, following...
David C. Cook's SUNDAY PIX #1-14 (May 1-July 31, 1949),
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #84 (Jun'51),
Boy Scouts Of America's BOYS' LIFE (Jul'54), and
Empresa Nacional's CAVALEIRO ANDANTE #453 (Sep'60)
.....the last one 14 months earlier.
As of 7-22-2018, I have not been able to determine who the writer or artist were on this book. Any help in that area would be appreciated!
