Poe 1970, Pt. 6

(Continued from Poe 1970, Pt. 5)

DOSSIER NEGRO  16
"LA CAIDA DE LA CASA USHER"
     (IN COLOR  w/ English Translation  /  Part 2)

Ibero Mundial De Ediciones was the work of publisher & editor José María Arman Corbera, located in Barcelona, Spain, from 1959 to 1978.  In their time they did romance, comedy, horror & science-fiction.

DOSSIER NEGRO was a B&W horror anthology in the style of Warren's CREEPY and others, which began in 1968.


Among its contents were at least 3 Poe adaptations.  First up:

     "THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER"

     This was the 13th comics version of this story, following...
Charlton's YELLOWJACKET COMICS #4 (Dec'44),
Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #40 (Aug'47),
Register & Tribune's THE SPIRIT (Aug'48),
EC's THE VAULT OF HORROR #13 (Jun-Jul'50),
Prize's BLACK MAGIC #28 (Jan-Feb'54),
EC's TERROR ILLUSTRATED #1 (Nov'Dec'55),
Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #5 (1967),
Serg's 3 HISTOIRES EXTRAORDINAIRES (1968),
Warren's EERIE #20 (Mar'69),
Milano Libri's LINUS #50 (May'69),

EDAR
's MINI TERROR #132 (May'69), and
Gino Sansoni's I CLASSICI A FUMETTI #17 (Sep'69)
     ...the last one 10 months earlier.

This version differed from most others, in that Madeline was already insane before the story began, rather than being driven so by her brother's actions.  As I tend to do translations as I go, I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out myself.

The art is by Miguel Gomez Esteban.  This was his 1st of 2 POE stories.

His art really reminds me of the look and feel of a classic Hammer Film.  Or, for that matter, an episode of Dan Curtis' DARK SHADOWS, which was still on the air when this came out.
