Poe 1963, Pt. 4

(Continued from Poe 1963, Pt. 3A)

TESORO DE CUENTOS CLASICOS  72
"AVENTURAS DE GORDON PYM"

     (w/ English Translation)

Editorial Novaro is a publisher based in Mexico City.  Beginning 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.

With regard to Edgar Allan Poe, Novaro published 2 adaptations of his stories in their TESORO DE CUENTOS CLASSICOS series (in 1961 and 1963), reprints of Dell's movie adaptations in CLASSICOS DEL CINE (in 1963, 1964, and 1966), distributed Editorial Temporae's EL MONJE LOCO (in 1968, 1969 and 1970), and, a biography comic in one issue of their long-running VIDAS ILUSTRES (in 1968).

TESORO DE CUENTOS CLASICOS ("Treasury Of Classic Tales") was Novaro's home-grown version of Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED.

TDCC only did 2 Poe adaptations.  The second was Poe's nautical adventure-disaster tale...

"THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM OF NANTUCKET"

     This was the 3rd comics version of this story, following...
Librairie Arthème Fayard's LE AVENTURES DE GORDON PYM (1948),
Société Parisienne's MONDIAL AVENTURES #29 (1959)
     ...the last one 4 years earlier.

As of 10-21-2018, I have not been able to determine who the writer or artist were on this book.  Any help in that area would be appreciated!

ENJOY!
