Poe 1968, Pt. 29

(Continued from Poe 1968, Pt. 28)

     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation)

Editora Continental / Outubro / Taika were 3 names used by the same small publisher in Brazil.  The work of artists Jayme Cortez & Miguel Penteado, they produced some wonderful comics, many of them in the horror genre, each doing many gorgeous, stunning cover paintings!

I have discovered, between my own researches and the IMMENSE help of artist and fellow fan Toni Rodrigues, that Continental / Outubro / Taika during their run produced at least 25 POE adaptations-- MORE than Skywald or Warren !!  It's my intention to compile, clean up, TRANSLATE and COLOR every one of these for my POE blog project!!

25th in line from the publisher...


Some time after I thought I might be finished with Taika, this turned up at the Banca Dos Gibis Brazucas blog, posted by Flavio Barbier on 5-21-2018, as a reprint in ALMANAQUE DRACULA #4 (1973).  If this was a regular website instead of a blog, I would have set it up right after the previous ones, but I've been moving enough pages around trying to be more organized already.  I have no idea where it originally appeared, but it seems certain it must have been published in some book in 1968.

The theme of a murderer being found out is similar to that in "THE TELL-TALE HEART" and "THE BLACK CAT".

Yet again, the art is by Ignacio Justo & his assistant "Edegar".  It has occured to me, that since it seems every time they worked together, they were always credited as, "Edegar & Ignacio Justo", that it's just possible that "Edegar"was Ignacio's SON, helping out, the way Jack Kirby's wife Roz did in the late 1950s.  This is just a guess on my part, but, it seems reasonable.

This was their 6th of 6 POE adaptations.

The more I look at this story, the more the un-named narrator, as depicted in the art, reminds me of actor Brian Donlevy, who often played bad guys.
