Story Origin: Edgar Allan Poe poem, “The Premature Burial”.
Synopsis: A man lusts a girl but she wants to do it through marriage. Instead he arranges her to the ground and he digs her back alive.
Comment: This time Mr. Corben wrote a story more down the earth. There’s a fantasy level of the story as well. The story is a bit complicated but at least he’s got fun with digging a girl up and make her to run out of graveyard. Naked. The art is well done but you can find a bit tiredness for him for E.A. Poe adaptations. His daughter Beth did the most of the coloring. Fine work as well.
