Dark Horse Comics: The Raven And The Red Death cover by Richard CorbenThe Raven and the Red Death
One-Shot
Written by Richard Corben
Illustrated by Richard Corben
Lettered by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Cover by Richard Corben
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: October 30, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Readers like Edgar Allan Poe’s work for the way it makes them feel; for how it sucks them into his worlds and sneakily crawls under their skin. Poe’s tales and poetry — including both The Raven and The Mask of the Red Death — settle slowly and move along naturally, allowing mystery, wonder and thrill to develop in one’s mind before the real horror appears.

Dark Horse’s site describes Richard Corben‘s adaptation for Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven and The Red Death as “terrifying.” The only issue is, they aren’t scary. Corben utilizes his recurring character of “Mag the Hag” as a traveler who ends up looping through or walking in on the stories. Before I researched who Mag was, my only introduction to her was on the cover page (very nicely drawn by Corben) and on page one of the comic, where she interrupts the narrator’s musings in The Raven with the cheeky line: “The weather has put young Arnold in a melancholy mood, leading him to grimly narrate his own evening in verse.” Now, in casual conversation, this might be a humorous detail to note about The Raven, but in terms of the story, it disrupts any possibility of the reader getting involved or spooked at all.

Breaking Bad Walter White I Am The One Who Knocks

One of the most memorable “speeches” that’s come out of AMC’s Breaking Bad is the one Walter White (Bryan Cranston) gives about being “The One Who Knocks.”

Now, McSweeney’s has posted what Walt’s speech would have been if it had been written by famous authors like Edgar Allan Poe, George R.R. Martin, J.K. Rowling, Dr. Seuss, and more.

I’ve listed a few from my favorite authors here below, along with a video of the scene from Breaking Bad (where Walt also says another popular quote, “I am the danger”).

H.P. Lovecraft The Call of Cthulhu

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. But what if you could judge an author by his or her book?

Artist Selin Arisoy sent us a gallery of images that she created where she took the visage of a handful of timeless fiction authors and characterized them as their famous novels. H.P. Lovecraft as The Call of Cthulhu, Edgar Allan Poe as The Raven, Ray Bradbury as Fahrenheit 451, Mary Shelley as Frankenstein, and Frank Herbert as Dune.

Check them all out below.

Doom Digest

Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.

Today: Community star Yvette Nicole Brown with Cap’s shield, Alex Ross Star Trek box art, Hellacious Acres trailer, new Joss Whedon book, Poe & Phillips graphic novel, a featurette on Creature, plus some Bits Of Doom.
