Maxon's Poe: Seven stories and poems

By Edgar Allan Poe
Illustrated by Maxon Crumb
Preface by Robert Crumb

A fleeting glimpse in the runaway hit movie, Crumb, only hinted at Maxon Crumb's inimitable artwork. Maxon's Poe now showcases his stunning creativity and confirms his rightful place among the Crumb family of artists.

" last they collaborate; Poe's morbid, flamboyant text with Maxon's visceral, nightmarish drawings. They are somehow uncannily well-suited to each other." -R. Crumb

The stories and poems are: The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Bells, The Masque of the Red Death and The Cask of Amontillado.

The 1200 first paperback edition is sold out.
No reprinting foreseeable.
