Music by: Poe's 200th



When I was 15 years old I devoured my first Edgar Allan Poe book; it was "Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque", a collection of short stories, containing some of the best from him. It also included "The Raven", "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket" and "The Gold-Bug".

Such stories got a huge impact on my young self. The things I write about today in the comics are influenced by this author. I even named the raven in the strips after him.
He has an impact on the things I dream, to this day.

I love (still do) the horror, the shock, the resurrected and the undead, the cryptography, the loneliness.
The detective work.

It's Allan Poe's 200th birthday anniversary this monday. I hope he reads this webcomic.

Edgar, you're my favorite Edgar. And I know quite a few.
