Description



Attend a meeting of genius horror mavens with this "Edgar Allen Poe Portfolio" by Berni Wrightson (d.2017). Renowned for his distinctive pen and brushstroke art on a number of classic horror comics, most famously DC's original Swamp Thing series, Wrightson paid tribute with this set of art prints to the master of the macabre Edgar Allen Poe, who is a treasure of American literature. Housed in its original portfolio folder is an LE set of (8) 12x16 plates numbered "240/2,000". Reporting in like-new condition, these prints were created by Wrightson as an homage to eight of Poe's most compelling tales, including "The Tell-Tale Heart"; "Murders in the Rue Morgue"; "The Black Cat"; "The Cask of Amontillado"; "The Pit and the Pendulum"; "Masque of the Red Death"; "The Premature Burial"; and "Descent into the Maelstrom". Wrightson has signed ("9-10") the certification section printed inside the cover, amping up the value of this prestigious collection.
